A law-abiding gun owner in Texas could face up to 10 years in jail. On tonight's edition of the Civil Rights Round Up, NRA Deputy General Council Stefan Tahmassebi discusses the case of Tommy Oaks, an air traffic controller and right-to-carry holder who noticed his neighbor's house in the process of being burglarized by three men while the neighbors were out of town. When the criminals drove their car toward Mr. Oaks and were "rummaging around for something in the car," Oaks feared for his life and fired five shots from his licensed handgun. He is now being charged with two felonies, while the career criminals he fired upon have only been charged for a misdemeanor.
