''Premises'' Definition (Unauthorized Carrying of a Weapon )

In Lucas v. State, 791 S.W.2d 35, 64 (Tex. Crim. App. 1989), the court of criminal appeals addressed the issue of whether a probable cause affidavit was sufficient to support an arrest warrant for unauthorized carrying of a firearm by a felon. In that case, the defendant lived on a compound and possessed a firearm in a common area of the compound. In concluding the affidavit supported the magistrate's probable cause determination, the court acknowledged the term premises and phrase "premises where he lives" is not defined in the penal code. Lucas, 791 S.W.2d at 64. It further noted that the statute was intended to prohibit felons from "going about" with firearms. See id. Nothing in the Lucas opinion purports to limit the definition of "premises" and appellant's trial objection presents nothing for review.
