[OFF THE POST] Last week, we reported on a Pennsylvania woman who was allowed to keep her concealed handgun permit despite carrying a Glock 26 to her 5-year-old daughter's soccer games. Now there's news from Texas that a soccer dad might lose his permit after pulling a gun on the husband of his son's female coach during a U-9 game.

According to NewsChannel 11, Tye Burke, 25, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon by Lubbock Police. Burke pulled the gun on his child's coach's husband after he tried to stop Burke from yelling at his wife.

An off-duty prison guard tackled Burke, and got the gun away from him, according to NewsChannel 11.

"The laws pertaining to a concealed handgun permit, only allows you to carry the firearm on or about your person. Beyond that, the laws that apply to using the firearm, displaying the firearm, things of that nature are the same for anybody," Lubbock Police Captain Greg Stevens said.
