Since you quoted me where I quoted the defense to prosecution, then yes: yes, I do agree. :lol:

I have been addressing this subject recently and doing a lot of study on it. I will have some information to share pretty soon. Most of it is based on posting requirements.

It is regretable that Sonora Rebel has such a negative perception of Texas - but I DO understand.

Texas weapons laws - like most all states - are primarily directed towards criminal conduct.
Granted, sorry-ass D.A.'s , & judges misapply, , misconstrue, and misinterpret the INTENT of such laws.

Current statutory law in Texas criminalizes the INTENTIONAL display of a handgun by a "licensee". When I am in Texas I never INTENTIONALLY display my handgun in public.
I make every reasonable effort to conceal same. It is my INTENTION to conceal my handgun when in Texas.

I believe the 46.035 (a) sanction against licensed OC will be repealed in 2013.

Unfortunately, I believe there will be some political resistance to unlicensed (nonexcepted)handgun OC in Texas for some time.

That having been said .......I would submit that how a citizen goes about exercising their constitutionally ( Article 2, Section 23) declared RIGHT in Texas is paramount to public acceptance.
