Carrying Weapons in Unauthorized Locations

Houston Gun Charge Lawyer

In Texas, the law is clear. It is unlawful to carry a weapon, such as a club, knife, firearm, or any other prohibited weapon listed in Section 46.05(a)...(3) on the premises of any government court or offices utilized by the court, unless you have prior written authorization of the court. Obviously, it is a defense if you possessed the firearm while in the actual discharge of your duties as a member of the armed forces, National Guard, were employed by a penal institution, or were an officer of the court. It is also unlawful to carry a weapon, whether concealed or not, while at any meeting of a government entity.
