oh no! !!! don't listen to them...


The revised the traveling law... and a few others...

basically you can now get away with having a loaded gun concealed IN YOUR CAR within reach...

That is basically the gist of it.

BTW it is risky... police still really don't know where to stand... and LOTS of places in Texas for example Houston have a arrest on site policy when there is an unlicensed gun in the car.
Regardless of the law...
It's a huge headache...
Kinda you can beat the time but you gotta take the ride... or however that saying goes.


Just get your CHL..

Much easier.

From a Tx LEO...don't do it. Get your CHL. The word travelling is not really defined and thus varies from city to city, county to county and DA to DA, etc....Plus the burden of proof is on you. Just get your CHL. If you choose to carry in a car without it just know that you open yourself up to alot of heartache and giving your money to a lawyer.

according to my CHL instructor and ex-cop the new law means it is legal to carry a concealed handgun in your vehicle. it has more to do with the castle doctrine than the word traveling. you can protect yourself in your home without CHL now you can protect yourself in your car. seems like a carjack/homejack thing. just the way i understood it from class last weekend. if you're not comfortable doing it, DON'T!

HB1815 made it legal to carry a handgun from your residence to your vehicle, inside your vehicle, and from your vehicle to your place of work (assuming your work allows it), as long as you are not a gang member, not engaging in a criminal act, can legally possess a handgun in the state of TX, and the handgun is concealed. Google HB 1815 for specifics.

Like propellerhead said.

The "travelling" part was taken out because it was never defined and too ambiguous. Some DA's or Officers considered "traveling" to be going across 3 (or 4 or 5 or ????) county lines, having an overnight bag, planning on spending the night, yada yada yada. HB1815 removed the "travelling" part because there were alot of DA's/LE's who still refused to follow the law. Apparently, they didn't/don't realize that you don't have to leave your town/city/county to be carjacked/robbed/whatever.

If you are going to carry on your person, you need to get your CHL. You shouldn't "have" to get it but it is the law. Oh yeah, and the State needs the money.
