The gate is closed but you can park outside of it. Today I went there to fish and someone broke into a guys car. It was just me and him for about 2 hours. It wasn't until someone else arrived and told us that we found out. I left immediately! Shame the bite was good and I had the bait for it...

The time was 11 to 11:30 AM. 10/8/2015

I think I'll wait for the gate to open. Hopefully it will be when Cedar Hill State Park opens.

I don't think they've opened that gate in a long time. Last time I was there, a bunch of guys were yelling and carrying on and smoking weed. Since its corps land you can't carry a gun either. It'll be a cold day in hell when i go back.

Break ins and pot and drinking has always been a problem there.
If you cannot see your car from the bank. Do not go.

those gates have been closed for years and more than likely will not reopen. Drug deals, drinking, littering and drownings, enough reason to keep them closed

You can legally defend yourself with a pistol. Even if you don't have a permit.

Yeah, but don't get caught on Corp. property (like it really belongs to them) with one. Funny how the government likes to ignore the constitution like it does...and continues to get away with it.

And if you are going to shoot someone for breaking into your car you shouldn't carry a gun.

Right , they would learn a better lesson if you just sit back and watch em break into your car....recent studies show that its better if you help them steal your stuff

Do you really want to shoot and kill someone for stealing stuff out of your car? Do you want to go thru the whole process of the police investigation and face possible criminal charges? What if its a couple of 16 year old kids making dumb choices in life? If you have insurance it will get replaced.

My CHL instructor taught the class how to avoid using our guns in 99% of situations unless it was life or death. Having your stereo, cellphone or whatever taken from your car is not one of those situations. If you can not recognize that you shouldn't carry a gun.

If you shoot someone at 11 AM in the morning for breaking into your car they better have a gun or weapon on them and were a threat to your life or others. If they don't you are going to be in a world of hurt.

Do cops role up on car burglars and start shooting? No.IF they do dont you think they will be facing charges? What makes you think you can and get away with it?

I would rather lose a couple thousand dollars of stuff then have to go to jail, post a bond and pay tens of thousands of dollars in bond and lawyers fees.

Its common sense.

We have different views. I don't work my a** off to buy things i want. Just to let someone else steal them.

The people who are advocating shooting someone for breaking into a vehicle, just because they think it's the right thing to do, really need to read the law as it is actually written. You may find yourself in a position that will be a lot more expensive than the GPS that got jacked out of your truck. Even if you hammer down on someone and it was in reality a good shoot, it's going to go to the Grand Jury and the legal expenses just to get no-billed run into the thousands of $$$.

You are a lot better off hiding valuables, making sure your insurance is current and go fishing.
