Member Question: Can I Attend a Peaceful Protest While Carrying?

 

Q: I am considering attending a peaceful march/protest in my city. What are the restrictions on CHL holders at a large-group gathering? We will be on public property, where, otherwise, I would carry. Just wondering because it is a large gathering and it is organized, and I wanted to know if there is a restriction.

A: Texas law does not prohibit license holders from carrying in these situations, as long as you are not in a location that is otherwise prohibited by law. The only restrictions around group activities would be sporting events and school-sponsored activities.
