Peaceful Protest and Concel Carry
« on: January 19, 2017, 11:10:41 AM »
I am considering attending a peaceful march / protest in my city What are the restrictions on CHL holders at a large group gathering. We will be on public property where otherwise I would carry. Just wondering if because it is a large gathering and organized if there is a restriction.

hodgestl,

Texas law does not prohibit license holders from carrying in these situations, as long as you are not in a location that is otherwise prohibited by law. The only restrictions around group activities would be sporting events and school sponsored activities.

Unfortunately, if you display it or someone sees it, you might garner some unwelcome attention from the police, news media, and possibly the local district attorney, all wanting to know why you brought a weapon to a peaceful protest.  But that's why you have TLS.
