This time a year ago, I was in mourning. My grandmother – the woman who had raised me – had died. I’d gone to her funeral in Brooklyn and was planning a few days off to deal with that, and to decompress from the greater American grief of another mass shooting, having just covered the racist murders inside the Tops supermarket in Buffalo, New York.

I remember seeing early reports of a possible school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. I didn’t know where Uvalde was at the time, and there wasn’t a lot of information coming out about what happened. When we get reports of active shooters, I always try to wait to see how they develop, hoping that it turns into nothing. And with Uvalde, the chatter initially died down, so I assumed it was over and I hoped it wasn’t so bad.

Then several hours later we got word of an initial death count of 15.

If only those police officers had gone in and rescued those kids! So many bled out because their bosses were too cautious.
But don't blame the whole state. Plenty of the police in other parts of Texas are doing their jobs well.

And remember, the police during Columbine also made mistakes. Or do you consider that the fault of Colorado?

The Columbine shootings became the training example for what not to do. Evidently the Uvalde police department learned nothing.

HOW MANY YEARS ago was Columbine ,how many more mass shootings have there been since Columbine? THERE IS NO EXCUSE for what happened! And the astonishing, absolute disgusting thing is...the majority of those officers responding to the event...R STILL ON PAYROLL AND LITTLE TO NOTHING
HAVE SUFFERED RAMIFICATIONS....(do the research). Where is the justification for that? TEXAS has
some totally F. U. standards/laws and maintains a BMOC status (BIG man on campus).....the state is a
travesty and an insult to all. JMO

The officers were told to stand down. And one officer who had kids in the school had his duty pistol taken from him.
They screwed up, but blaming the state for one department's timidity is wrong.

HA,
Once again you do not surprise me. After only 2 posts regarding the Uvalde shooting you manage to bring up abortion. You seem to find some connection between the police actions in Uvalde and abortion, what it is escapes me.
Yet you refuse to address the question: In your opinion when does life begin?

So sad that Texas makes it illegal to rip fetuses out of a woman's body past a certain date.

Luckily Colorado abortions are climbing per the Denver Post as women head here to terminate pregnancies.

Much like legalized marijuana, abortion is an industry in Colorado.

The state of Texas has a long history with firearms, and as of 2023, there have been several changes to the state’s gun laws. In 2021, HB 1927 was signed into law, allowing Texans to carry handguns without a license or permit. Prior to this change, Texans were required to obtain a license to carry a handgun openly or concealed.

However, there are still some restrictions on where guns can be carried, and individuals with certain criminal backgrounds or mental health issues may be prohibited from possessing firearms. Whether you are a gun owner or not or simply interested in the state’s legislation, it’s important to stay informed about the latest updates.

The legal team at the Law Office of Joseph Ruiz, PLLC, has put together a comprehensive overview of Texas gun laws in 2023, covering everything from concealed carry permits to restrictions on assault weapons. By the end of this blog, you will have all the information you need to understand Texas gun laws in 2023.
Who Has Permission to Carry a Gun?

Texas gun regulations that govern the carrying and ownership of weapons have undergone substantial revisions as of 2021. The state still offers a license to carry for those who seek additional privileges, but it is now legal for qualified people to carry handguns in public without one.

A person must fulfill certain standards, including being at least 21 years old and not having certain criminal convictions or orders of protection against them, to be carrying a handgun without an LTC. Rifles and shotguns are examples of long guns that are not specifically restricted, yet certain persons are legally forbidden from owning or having any firearms.

There are limitations on where weapons, especially long guns, may be carried, notwithstanding Texas law permitting open carry of long guns in public areas. For instance, it is illegal to carry a gun in public areas like pubs, voting stations, and schools.
How You Can Carry a Gun in Texas

In Texas, the laws regarding carrying a gun differ depending on whether you are carrying a handgun or a long gun such as a rifle or shotgun.

If you are carrying a handgun, it is required by law to carry it in a holster, but there is no specific requirement as to what type of holster is necessary. Before 2021, when a license was required to openly carry a handgun, it had to be carried in a shoulder or belt holster. However, with the new changes in the law, a license is no longer required, and the only requirement is that the handgun be carried in a holster.

Carrying a long gun is not specifically addressed in Texas law, but some people are prohibited from owning or possessing any firearm by law. In addition, the disorderly conduct law regulates how firearms can be displayed in public, and flaunting a firearm publicly in an alarming manner is a criminal offense.
Relevant Texas Penal Code Sections

A pistol kept in an automobile must likewise be hidden, according to Section 46.02 of the Texas Penal Code. The pistol must be stored in a case, a closed glove box, or a lockable center console if it is not in a holster.

The Texas Criminal Code’s Chapter 46 contains laws on the illegal carrying of firearms, including rifles and shotguns, and other non-handgun firearms. It also describes crimes involving the possession of weapons by specific people, such as convicts and those who have been found guilty of crimes involving family violence.

Section 46.03 in the Texas Penal Code includes the places where carrying a firearm is not allowed, including at an educational institution, a racetrack, a hospital, or a nursing home. Section 46.035 in the Texas Penal Code describes the different situations or places where carrying handguns is prohibited for those with licenses, including at a correctional facility.

It is important to be aware of where and how to carry your gun in the state of Texas, as well as what documents are required in order to stay in accordance with the law.
FAQs About Texas Gun Laws
What Is the New Gun Law That Just Passed in 2023?

A measure approved by the Texas Senate would plug a legal gap that permitted the sale of firearms to individuals between the ages of 16 and 18 who were unintentionally admitted to a mental health facility. All involuntary mental hospitalizations that must be reported by the courts to the Texas Department of Public Safety, which then transmits the information to the FBI’s national guns background check system, were sometimes being misreported.
Does Your Gun Have to be Visible in Texas?

In Texas, open carry of a handgun is generally not allowed. This means that the gun must be concealed and not visible to the public. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. For example, a person may carry a handgun openly if they are on their own property or if they are participating in certain activities like hunting, fishing, or target shooting.
Can You Carry Guns in Texas Without a License?

In September 2021, Texas passed a new law that allows residents who are 21 or older and meet certain requirements to carry handguns without a license or training. This law, known as “Constitutional Carry,” took effect on September 1, 2021. There are some
