Dallas Gun Possession Lawyer

In Texas, most people are allowed to keep legal firearms in their homes, but carrying them in public is a different matter. Texas citizens are only allowed to carry concealed handguns if they apply and are approved for a Concealed Handgun License, or CHL. With a CHL, handgun owners are allowed to carry certain kinds of handguns on their persons if they keep the guns hidden and follow very strict guidelines.

CHL Restrictions

Contrary to popular belief, earning a CHL does not give a person free reign to carry a handgun, and violations of CHL rules can range from class A misdemeanors to third degree felonies. There are numerous restrictions on where concealed weapons are allowed, and some common places where gun possession may result in criminal charges include:

  • School property
  • Amusement parks
  • Government polling places
  • Airports
  • Racetracks
  • Sporting events for high schools, colleges, or professionals

Additionally, there are some individuals who may not be allowed to possess a firearm at all, including those who have been convicted of felonies or certain misdemeanors and those who have defaulted on taxes, among other issues.
