Judge keeps guns out of Waller County courthouse

“This was not, and still is not, a matter of Waller County, or any member of Waller County’s Commissioners Court, being anti-gun or anti-carry in any way,” Waller County Judge Trey Duhon told the Houston Chronicle (http://bit.ly/2gKsnis ). “Waller County’s decision in this matter was simply to enforce the law exactly as it was intended by the Texas Legislature.”

Paxton, who has filed his own lawsuit against the county, said McCaig’s ruling that resolved a suit involving Terry Holcomb Sr., founder of the group Texas Carry, makes “a mockery of legislative democracy.”

Holcomb, who started the legal fight in May with a letter requesting removal of the courthouse signs, said he’s appealing McCaig’s ruling.

“I have no doubt that the Court of Appeals will reject the trial judge’s usurpation of law and apply the statutes as written,” Paxton said.
