Kinda new to Reationsships and Firearms.
« on: February 28, 2017, 02:14:06 PM »
Are there any laws preventing me from keeping a locked (with Gun Cable Lock) Firearm at my girlfriends house while I am at work?
Does my firearm have to be locked up and stored where I reside while I am away at work?
I  have my own place of residence but I do stay at her place about 5-6 days out of the week.

No law preventing you from leaving your gun at your girl friends house as long as she can legally have a firearm - i.e. no legal reason she is disqualified from gun ownership.

I am not a lawyer, but not aware of  any law in Texas requiring you to lock up a gun. However, you can be held responsible if it gets in the hands of a minor.

I believe if you look through or do a search in the "Ask the Lawyers" section, you may find a "lawyers answer" to one or both of your questions.
