    They took out the "Traveling " defense back in 2007 or 2008.

    Then there's a protection to prosecution that's available on for "transporting" under the federal Firearm Owners Protection Act.

    If the law allows you to carry one legally under certain conditions, why would they charge you if you were justified in using it?

    A few followup questions if i may about texas concealed carry in vehicle

    Should you declare you have a concealed weapon when pulled over?
    Yes, you should

    And/or are you legally required to declare you have said weapon?
    No you're not, but again, a good idea

    If you inform the LEO you have a concealed weapon, is it now a crime since it would be the same as plain viewed?
    No, because it is still concealed you were just making him/her aware of it for their personal safety

    Why can you have the weapon concealed but not plain view?
    Because the (80th) Legislature said so.

    If you have a permit, can you then have it plain view in vehicleNo

    can you ever have a firearm in plain view on person or in vehicle legaly in texas?
    If you are allowed to carry a gun because you're one of the people defined in CCP 2.12 (otherwise known as Peace Officers). Otherwise, no, but exceptions are generally made for long guns.

    Thanks
    You're welcome

    iamacop, let me correct you ever so slightly...

    You must not be prevented by law from possessing a handgun. There are more DQs than just a convicted felon.

    Also, it's not a Class C, just not committing a Traffic Code violation. You can get busted for 2nd offense DWLS and be good, but if it's an offense outside the traffic code, then you're in trouble.

    started a topic Texas Concealed Firearms

    Texas Concealed Firearms

    I heard from someone that in Texas, it is ok to carry a handgun in your vehicle if you don't have a permit, as long as it's not in plain view. Is this correct?
