    Summary of new laws passed in the 84th Regular Legislative Session that impact
    Concealed Handgun Licensing.

    Open Carry / House Bill 910 Effective: January 1, 2016

    Caption: Relating to the authority of a person who is licensed to carry a handgun to
    openly carry a holstered handgun; creating criminal offense.

    General Information:
    Authorizes individuals to obtain a license to openly carry a handgun in the same places
    that allow the licensed carrying of a concealed handgun with some exceptions. (See
    "Exceptions" below for more information.)
    Unconcealed handguns, loaded or unloaded, must be carried in a shoulder or belt holster.
    Individuals who hold a valid LTC may continue to carry with valid existing license.
    A separate license will not be required to open carry. No additional fee will be required.
    Individuals currently licensed will not be required to attend additional training. Training
    curriculum for new applicants will be updated to reflect the new training requirements
    related to the use of restraint holsters and methods to ensure the secure carrying of
    openly carried handguns. The new curriculum will be required for all classes beginning
    January 1, 2016.

    The eligibility criteria to obtain a license to carry do not change.
    The department will be updating website, forms and training materials to reference
    License to Carry (LTC) instead of Concealed Handgun License (LTC).
    Changes to the laminated license are being developed and will be implemented at a later
    date.

    Signage:
    Private businesses may post signs to indicate entry on the property with a handgun by a
    license holder is forbidden.  Penal Code Section 30.06 provides the language to be
    included on signs to indicate license holders are forbidden to carry concealed.
    Penal Code Section 30.07 provides the language to be included on signs to indicate
    license holders are forbidden to open carry.
    Posting of both signs is an indication by the business that license holders are forbidden
    to carry concealed or openly.

    EXCEPTIONS:
    Open carry is not permitted by a license holder regardless of whether the handgun is
    holstered:

  • - On the premises of an institution of higher education or private or independent
    institution of higher education.

  • - On any public or private driveway, street, sidewalk or walkway, parking lot, parking
    garage or other parking area of an institution of higher education or private or
    independent institution of higher education.

  • - By an individual who is acting as a personal protection officer under Chapter 1702,
    Occupations Code and is not wearing a uniform.
The Texas State LTC Schedule Fee For Veterans for
original/renewal applications is $25.
