Dallas Gun Possession Lawyers

Gun possession laws are rather complex and often controversial, especially in a state like Texas with fairly lenient gun laws.

Concealed Carry Restrictions

In order to carry a gun in public in Texas, a person must acquire a concealed handgun license (CHL). While a concealed carry license does allow a person to carry a concealed weapon in many circumstances, there are restrictions on where a person can bring a weapon. A CHL does not allow a person to carry a weapon in:

  • Correctional facilities
  • Amusement parks
  • High schools
  • Professional sporting events
  • Government meetings
  • Established worship facilities
  • Bars and clubs

In addition to adhering to CHL regulations, individuals in Texas are required to adhere to federal gun laws, which restrict the types of guns that individuals are allowed to own. Individuals accused of violating any of these laws can face charges ranging from a Class A misdemeanor all the way to a third degree felony.
