Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

Texas Gun Laws Explained

Texas is one of a handful of states that have relatively few gun laws. However, there are still laws in place to protect the public, and you should be aware of them. If you carry a gun or have been charged with a gun crime, you might want to read up on Texas gun laws.

Major Texas Gun Laws

Below, we’ve given you an outline of the major laws in Texas related to firearm possession, as well as how and when you’re allowed to carry:

  • Unlawful Carrying of a Weapon This crime is committed when a person knowingly carries a firearm in a way that is against the law, such as open carrying without a license or carrying a firearm while committing a crime.
  • Carrying in Places Where Weapons Are Prohibited This crime has been committed when a person knowingly carries a firearm onto a property that forbids the presence of weapons, such as certain schools or courts.
  • Unlawful Carrying of a Handgun by a License Holder This crime is committed when a person who is licensed to carry a concealed handgun intentionally displays the handgun in plain view.
  • Unlawful Possession of a Firearm A person commits this crime when he or she is not authorized under Texas law to carry a weapon. This might include convicted felons and certain people under community supervision.
  • Unlawful Transfer of Certain Weapons Intentionally selling, transferring, or leasing a handgun to someone you know is going to use it in the commission of a crime; selling or transferring a weapon to a minor; and selling or transferring to someone who is intoxicated could all be included under this rule.
  • Deadly Weapon in a Penal Institute This crime is committed when a person intentionally possesses or conceals a deadly weapon within a penal institute.

Some gun offenses can be charged as misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the circumstances of the case and your criminal history.
