    i think its some bs

    this guy lied about what happen and i went to jail and my gun lic was pulled. i went to court and its starting to show that he lied about all that went on. the da said they may drop the charges on me after they hear my 911 calls that it proves my side. i asked if they drop them are they going to do anything to him for lying and was told no its only about 200-250 fine for lying on a report. im out 7,500 and no lic for over a year and this guy going to walk off free.

    I don't know (or need to know) the details, but most states have an appeals process that might help get your license restored, and perhaps a civil lawsuit could be filed to cover your court costs (consult a lawyer, of course; I'm not a lawyer, nor do I play one on TV, so none of this should be construed as legal advice).

    yeah if i get it back im getting one of them. my lawyer said he does not have anything and i would just be spending money to get nothing. i think the county should give him jail time and a big fine for lying

    Look on the bright side, it was only $7,500 and not $100K+ and a couple of years.

    While he may not see much punishment criminally, you can take up your beef with him in civil court.

    Lawyers are usually good for making themselves money, with that said I'd think you'd have a civil case against the individual who lied unless they work for the government. Government employees can make things up or stretch the truth and be protected by the law. I found out here in CT on a non-gun related issue. If the person is just an individual then you should be able to sue to recover all expenses and damages, but check to see if the person has anything to sue for otherwise take the hit on the $7500.

    my court date is set for the nov 5. my lawyer is say texas has a stand your ground and he dont know why the state will not drop it but the state did not even want to hear my two 911 calls. the first one when i pulled it and the second one when the guy blocked the road and i had to drive thru the ditch. i asked my lawyer if i could go after him and he told me no. i dont know the guy. can i get his name so i can go after him. my chl person told me the state raised the amount from 5,000 to 10,000 a person and that they guy and girl both lied. so i should go after both of them for 10,000 each. any one know if thats true

    Hard to say since none of us have a clue what happened exactly... as you have never told us (which is fine as it's your business). Only that someone lied and you were charged with a crime? You lost your carry permit in the process... and spent a lot of money on attorney fees.

    No one here can give you any advice since we're all clueless to what this is all about... I assume you had a road rage incident & your gun was involved... as a result, you went to jail. The other party lied about what happened and now your in court.

    i had a guy run a stop sign and about hit me. i blew the horn for a short time nothing crazy. he brake checked me and started throwing things at me. so i moved over to get away from him. he cut over and hit his brakes again and still was throwing things back at my truck. i got on his drives side and asked him what his problem was. he said that he was having a bad day and thier car just got repoed. i said so you run a stop sign and brake check me 2 times in a truck that you dont own. i heard something hit my truck so i throw a 20 oz drink back. i drove off and he was in a lane where he could go by me. i seen him with what it looked like a 1 liter drink. he hit the side of my truck and it sounded like my door was bent in. so i went to get his plate number. he had pulled off the side in a open spot so i stopped to get his plate number. as i was looking for something to write on i hear him saying he was going to f me up. i should have just drove off but i got out and told him im disabled and im not going to fight. he said he was going to f me up any way. i told him i have my chl and i have my gun. he said you better use it. he got maybe 15 feet from me and i pulled it. he said you better use it because im going to f you up. he got maybe 10 feet from me and i pointed it at him. he said you better use it. i took the safety off and he stopped. i got back in my truck and drove off. i called it in that i pulled my gun. i was asked where i was and i said i drove away from him. she told me to go to the police station. i turn around to go back and that guy was thier blocking the road. i drove thru a ditch and he started chasing me. i got away from him and the cops arrested me for pulling my gun. they told the cops that i cut them off and was throwing stuff at them. they said they never threw anything at me and they did not tell them that they blocked the road the second time. i took pictures of my truck and you can see something was thrown at it. i took pictures of where i went thru the ditch

    Sorry for your troubles. I think the lesson you should take from this is if you had avoided him after his brake check you would not have lost a thing. The fight you avoid is a win in my opinion. The fact that you continued the encounter while carrying and got to the point of drawing it makes me think the cops got it right.

    im in a stand your ground state and my lawyer is thinking its a win for me. i got to see thier report and it was saying they was in fear of thier life.
    if you was in fear of your life would you block the road on someone you know that has a gun and just pulled it on you a few minutes ago? thier report says they was begging me not to shoot.

    I don't see how this has anything to do with standing your ground. You said that you were throwing 20 oz. drinks back and forth. How in hell does that turn in to you drawing your gun, aiming it at him and taking off the safety?

    yeah i may have been wrong for throwing a drink back at them but i think they should man up and tell the truth about all that what happen.

    I think self-preservation comes into play here. How do they benefit from agreeing with your side of the story?

    I see stories like this on the news almost every day...Family members come on TV and ask perpetrators to "do the right thing," and turn themselves in for some offense, or action.

    Sorry, but aint likely to happen here, either.

    i keep getting calls from my lawyer that they are not going to make my case this month and i need to go in and get my reset papers. this case has been going on over a year now. i was told that they have to do something with in 2 years or drop it. is that true? i think the state knows they are wrong and are going to just drag this out as long as they can.
