Hey guys,
I'm trying to be clear on the law here. I understand there is a prohibition, but I believe there is an exception with written consent from leadership of congregation...
Can someone help clarify?

thanks

I don't think you're prohibited unless the church is posted, but I'd have to go to packing.org or my manual from class to be sure.

I'm reading under penal code ch 46.035. (b) (6).
I did say 'prohibited' on first post. it is actually under 'unlawful carry by a license holder'.
I'm trying to understand if (4) is indicating 'written authorization' would allow lawful carry...

thanks for your response.

Provided you have a CHL, nothing keeps you from carrying in a church or other place of worship, except a 30.06. There is tons of information on this over at texaschlforum.com - it's a pretty frequent discussion, as you might imagine.

Syntax360,

thanks, I will check out the site for further enlightenment.
The language in my Texas handbook,2003-2004, is not absolutely clear to me.
I appreciate the web link!

best,

Ha-Ha!

thank you Syntax360 for the link, all has been clarified...

at the BOTTOM of PC 46.035, you will see subsection (i) tells you that unless the premises is posted with the '30.06' sign, CCW is leagal for a CHL holder.
Thanks for the input, I should have read further!

all the best,
mike1 :D

2 legislative sessions ago the rules were changed so Hospitals and places of worship now must be posted properly with the 30:06 sign.


It is legal to carry in both these places if it's not properly posted.

You know... maybe it's just me, but I think you seriously need to reconsider your membership if you feel the need to carry in church! What kind of congregation is this?

Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition!

Hopefully it its not the church, but the world in which the church sits. :)
God helps those who help themselves.
I have carried in church and have even donated to the St. Gabriel Possenti Society (patron saint of handgunners). http://www.possentisociety.com/
