Texas Open Carry

Governor Abbott Signs House Bill 910: Texas Open Carry Bill

New law to take effect on January 1, 2016  

On Saturday, with representatives of your NRA-ILA and our affiliate Texas State Rifle Association present, Governor Greg Abbott (R) signed into law House Bill 910, sponsored by state Representative Larry Phillips (R-Sherman) and state Senator Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls).  This landmark legislation will bring the total number of states recognizing the right of open carry to 44.  

The NRA-backed legislation removes the requirement for Concealed Handgun Licensees (CHLs) to keep their handguns concealed by giving them the option of carrying their firearm either wholly or partially visible in a belt or shoulder holster.  With a 20-year record of law-abiding and responsible behavior, Texas CHLs deserve this opportunity and this self-defense option.

    I thought Texas already had an open carry law.

    We have it in Missouri, but practically every city, county, municipality have a law that doesn't allow us to carry openly. That doesn't make sense. The state laws says we can carry openly. The local laws prevent us from carrying openly. There are only a few areas that allow for open carry here.
