La Vernia Mayor Pro Tem Harold Schott retired from the San Antonio Police Department after a 33-year career.Wrong! Texas has no state waiting period. Period.
One would be wise not to charge at him with a weapon, because he is a deadly-accurate shooter. Not one of his bullets hit outside the “bread basket” area on his target, and a couple of holes were on dead center in the bullseye.
But Schott was renewing his concealed handgun license by taking Cope’s class, and he explained the reason for it:
“If you go to buy a new shotgun, even if you’re in a policeman’s uniform, you have a five-day wait for an FBI background check. If you have a concealed handgun license, you could have the gun today. If you want to purchase a gun, a license makes it easier,” Schott said.
I would have assumed an ex-Only One would know that.
And yes, I noticed that his statement also reeks of elitism. But then I suppose that's par for the course.
