I got a PM about the trifold so just to avoid confusion, the latest (final) version is the one attached in Post #1 of this thread.
First off, Texas is NOT the premier Second Amendment state it claims to be. There are a lot of restrictions.So, I currently live in NC and enjoy OCing throughout this state and VA without a license. I will very likely be moving to TX (Austin area) before the end of the year. Is the info in the trifold still valid? Has anything changed since 2016?
It looks like I'll have to take a class and ask the gov't for permission to carry...
Reportedwe're lucky having clicked on the web page, it's exactly what my friend and I have been hoping for. The detailed information on this website is very helpful and is going to assist my friends and I all the time. It appears as if everyone gained a lot of specifics concerning subjects on the site and the other hyper links and information really show it. I am not on the internet all of the time however when I get a break im usually scouring for this type of factual information or others closely having to do with it. I have two of my friends that have also assumed an interest in this because of what I have found out about it and they will definitely to be visiting this web site because it's such an work changing treasure. I'm also interested in government issues and coping with the constant changes in elections. When you get a chance, have a look at my site. Seattle Photographer
Yeah, bro - current Texas carry laws are disappointing, to say the least. However...Sorry you left the tarheel state....
handgunlaw.us is your friend...e.g. https://handgunlaw.us/states/texas.pdf
Sec. 46.035. UNLAWFUL CARRYING OF HANDGUN BY LICENSE HOLDER. (a) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder carries a handgun on or about the license holder's person under the authority of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, and intentionally displays the handgun in plain view of another person in a public place. It is an exception to the application of this subsection that the handgun was partially or wholly visible but was carried in a shoulder or belt holster by the license holder.
Someone please point me to a case that makes open carry without a license a crime. Based on Section 46.035 if you get a license you agreed to be regulated.Article I - Sec. 23. RIGHT TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS. Every citizen shall have the right to keep and bear arms in the lawful defense of himself or the State; but the Legislature shall have power, by law, to regulate the wearing of arms, with a view to prevent crime.
The default in Texas is that carrying a handgun is prohibited. The law then creates some exceptions.Someone please point me to a case that makes open carry without a license a crime. Based on Section 46.035 if you get a license you agreed to be regulated.
Sec. 46.02. UNLAWFUL CARRYING WEAPONS. (a) A person commits an offense if the person:The default in Texas is that carrying a handgun is prohibited. The law then creates some exceptions.
Penal Code 46.02 is what you're looking for.
"Sec. 46.02. UNLAWFUL CARRYING WEAPONS. (a) A person commits an offense if the person:
(1) intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries on or about his or her person a handgun;"
best of luck...might review,The governor signed the bill into law yesterday (June 16, 2021). It goes into effect on 9/1.
I believe you are reading from the house version, not the final enrolled version. The Dutton amendment was removed in the final version (411.2049 portion of your quote). IMO explicitly stated or not, it would be a violation of rights to detain such a person without some other articulate-able reason. I live in Round Rock. I wonder how this is going to play out?
