Takin' it easy....

Well, all gun-related legislation in Texas is currently dead and won't be back around for another two years. Since that's what makes up 90% of the content of the blog, expect the updates to be much more sparse.

Police officer charged with stealing driver's gun.

DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas police officer has been fired and charged with theft and evidence tampering after investigators accused him of keeping a handgun confiscated from a motorist during a traffic stop.

A Dallas police department statement says Officer Lavar Horne searched the car during an April 28 traffic stop and seized the gun and marijuana. Internal affairs investigators say he discarded the marijuana at the end of his shift and placed the gun in his personal bag.

He was fired and booked into the Dallas County jail Wednesday, where he's held in lieu of $50,000 bond. He's charged with theft of a firearm by a public servant and evidence tampering. Conviction of either is punishable by two to 10 years in prison.

Jail records showed no attorney listed for Horne.
