The Travel Exception
to Handgun Possession in Texas
by Donald Ray Burger
Attorney at Law

Texans without a CHL cannot carry a handgun in public in Texas. That includes your car. One of the "exceptions" to this rule allows one to have a handgun in your car while traveling. Lots of cases deal with this restriction. Most try to restrict it. Many of the cases contradict each other

This page is under construction. For now, know that the "travel" exception is frought with danger, and is not always what it appears. Every qualified Texan should get a CHL and avoid this legal quagmire.
