 Permitless Carry or Constitutional Carry

Texas is "Free America" and a strong supporter of the 2nd amendment that now allows permitless carry.

However, DO NOT BE MISLED about permitless carry!

 

You could say Texas Constitutional Carry is as simple as carrying without a permit… but you’d be wrong. There’s a reason why gun owners refer to this law as “complicated carry”—it can be an easy trap with severe penalties for the uninformed and irresponsible. Don’t be one of those people.

This course created by Texas Online LTC will teach you the laws, requirements and restrictions that come with permitless carry. After taking our course you will be able to carry with the peace of mind that comes from knowing the laws.

Permitless Carry

However, just because you can legally buy a gun from a gun shop does not mean you can legally carry it without a license. Texas added eligibility restrictions and increased the penalty for certain people who carry and do not meet the requirements. It’s important that you understand and know these laws and restrictions.
