    What are the laws reguarding Carrying a firearm on Your property (I.E. front yard, driveway, ect)? Are Rifles prohibited?

    I just got a phone call from my war bud in El Paso, and he had some thugs causing trouble in front of his house....and the only firearm he currently has in an M-4. He was asking me whats what (....and here in AZ you can open carry anything on your property).

    What are the course of action options for a 3x Combat Vet (This side of greasing the bad guys)?

    Any other advise Ican pass on to my boy would be appreciated.

    You can open carry a rifle on or off your property in Texas. You can open carry a pistol on your own property.

    Advice is don't do anything stupid. And I don't mean that rudely rather, think through potential courses of action depending on what those thugs are doing. You don't want your buddy to end up on the losing side because of some technicality. I've had quite a few brainstorming sessions with myself in regards to scenarios at my folks place that was often a target.

    As for OC, like said above, long arm is legal OC on and off your property. Handgun legal only on your property.

    I highly recommend a safe in the house for a fairly bulletproof way to safeguard any firearms. If those thugs do see your buddy walk out there with a good looking firearm, they're likely to try to come back to steal it and whatever other goodies might be in the house.

    What exactly is the scenario?

    The answer depends situation to situation, hinges on every detail and frankly cannot be answered with a cut and dry play by play.


    I suppose I can give you the "PC" answer: call the cops and wait :what::P
