In response to a request by a patron, a search of the copyright status for the book Texas Guns by Paul Lehman was conducted. This report discusses the steps taken and the information that was found during that investigation.
The first step that was taken was a thorough examination of the title page. The book Texas Guns by Paul Lehman uses both 1950 and 1952 for the copyright dates, so because of the date the copyright it was determined that it would have had to been renewed. Next, the title page also states that it formally appeared under the title “Range Justice”. Also Star Guidance, Inc. is used in the copyright notice and there is a note stating, “This book contains the full text and was written specially for Star Books”. All of this gives the impression that it was a work for hire.
The second step taken was to double-check how long it would take before the book to become public domain. The following information was found, “Works published between 1923 and 1963, when a copyright notice is attached, can have their copyright renewed for a total of 67 years beyond the date of publication. (However, if the copyright is not renewed or if the work originally had no official copyright notice, then the work is already in public domain.)” (Butler 20) Therefore, it was decided that the book it would have had to been renewed for the copyright to be still valid.
The third step involved figuring out when it would need to be renewed by to see if the online Copyright Card Catalog could be used for the search. This statement was found “Any work published or registered before January 1, 1964, must have been renewed by an application for registration in the 28th year following the original ...

- On May, 2011, a bill that allows college students to have concealed guns on campus has been approved by the Texas State Senate according to The Daily Texan news article. Even other states are also trying to pass the law about concealed weapons on campus.

The people attempted a movement that soon was laid to rest by the Mexican Congress. Attempts at independence were silenced for the time being and the elections of 1835 proceeded forward....

- Men With Guns contains in it many of the essential ingredients for a feudalist economy, some being more explicitly demonstrated than others, but important and evident all the same. In a feudalist society, distinction between private rights and public authority oftentimes disappeared and local control tended to become a personal matter. Feudal leaders often took over the responsibility for the economic security of "their" territories and dictated how resources were to be produced and used.
