On January 1st the new laws will take effect allowing open carry of a firearm in public. The State of Texas Constitution Art I, Section 23 states: 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.

For the business owners of Texas who want to regulate the open carry and concealed carry handguns they need to understand what rules apply. First, all CHL (Concealed Handgun License) remain valid and will eventually be replaced with a “License to Carry” or LTC. No one can open carry unless they have the CHL or LTC license. If a business want to prohibit someone from carrying a firearm in their business they have that right. The business must display a sign at the main entrance that is in plain view. The letters must be in contrasting colors with block letters that are at least 1 inch in height. To prohibit someone from concealed carrying the sign must read; “PURSUANT TO SECTION 30.06 PENAL CODE (TRESPASS BY LICENSE HOLDER WITH CONCEALED HANDGUN), A PERSON LICENSED UNDER SUBCHAPTER H CHAPTER 411, GOVERNMENT CODE (HANDGUN LICENSING LAW), MAY NOT ENTER THIS PROPERTY WITH A CONCEALED HANDGUN.
