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?
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...
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.
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!
"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/
