Courthouse officials under scrutiny after AG files opinions on legal issues pertaining to penal code postings violating rights
By Daniel Elizondo
County commissioners are weighing in on banning licensed individuals from carrying guns at the Hardin County Courthouse, but legal issues are causing a stir.
Before commissioners could reach a decision at a called meeting on Wednesday, the issue was tabled while officials iron out legalities in what has become a muddy mess.
One open carry activist addressed commissioners on Wednesday at the Hardin County courthouse and threatened a complaint to the state’s attorney general office that the county was breaking the law by posting penal code 30.06 at the main entrances of the courthouse.
