Concealed Carry Violations

The state of Texas permits citizens to carry a concealed handgun following an extensive permitting process which ensures that they are well versed in the the safe operation of their weapon and the laws regarding its use, and can demonstrate above average proficiency in marksmanship. Those who obtain concealed carry licenses do so for various reasons, but the most common motive given is personal security.

In many circumstances in Texas, even a concealed carry permit is not sufficient to allow a citizen to carry a handgun onto particular properties. If you have been charged with a concealed carry violation, the Houston criminal defense attorneys of Johnson, Johnson & Baer, P.C. will work tirelessly to defend your rights and interests in court. Call today at 713-523-0404 to learn more about your legal options.

Limitations and Gun-Free Zones

Although in most circumstances a citizen with a concealed carry license may go where they wish with a handgun on their person, these weapons are banned in the following areas:

  • Elementary and secondary schools.
  • Any establishment which sells alcohol.
  • Government owned buildings such as courthouses and police stations.
  • Public events such as state fairs or polling places.
  • Any place of business which posts a state-approved sign prohibiting concealed carry.

The final category is under the grounds of an opt-out statute of the concealed carry law, allowing business owners who are uncomfortable with concealed handguns to prohibit them from their place of business.
