carrying without a permit 

Texas HB 1927 The Firearm Carry Act of 2021 (also known as Constitutional Carry) is in effect as of September 1. Law abiding citizens may now legally carry, open or concealed, a handgun in public places where it is not otherwise prohibited. There are many restrictions and serious repercussions for illegal firearm use or mishandling. Ignorance of the law is not a defense to prosecution. Please educate yourself about the safe handling and storage of your guns and laws that apply to how and where it is legal for you to carry.

There are many resources that may be accessed for free on the Texas DPS (department of public safety) website Instructions about how to apply for a Texas LTC may also be found here.

Texas LTC is recognised in nearly 40 states.

Constitutional Carry is law in more than twenty states (for residents only in many places, but a Texas LTC holder will be allowed to carry in some of these). Please note that there are other types of carry laws that vary from state to state.
Having a Texas LTC is a great advantage in the event of a traffic incident or other trouble that might arise while traveling within or out of state. Police officers like to see a gun license as it indicates a certain level of knowledge of handgun safety and proficiency has been attained. 

I am a firm believer that any law abiding citizen should be allowed to carry a gun. I truly wish more people would do so and safely with necessary care and responsibility. However, it is important to be familiar with the current laws of your state and any state you might find yourself in. Please find the recently passed Texas legislation below.
