Texas LegislatureI wanted to give our readers some updates on potential changes to concealed handgun laws for the state of Texas during this 83rd Texas Legislature.

SB 299 – This Senate Bill proposes changes to the Texas Penal Code Section 46.035 by state Senator Craig Estes (R-Wichita Falls) and state Representative Kenneth Sheets (R-Dallas) protects against charges of unlawful carry for the inadvertent or accidental display of a handgun by a Concealed Handgun Licensee. (This bill has passed the House & Senate and is currently awaiting the Governor’s signature)

SB 864 – This Senate Bill proposes changes to the Texas Penal Code Section 411.188 by state Senator Donna Campbell (R-New Braunfels) and state Representative Dan Flynn (R-Van) reduces the minimum number of required classroom training hours for original and renewal Concealed Handgun Licenses from 10-15 to 4-6. (This bill has passed the House & Senate and is currently awaiting the Governor’s signature)

Although there are several more potential law changes that have passed the House and are now being reviewed by the Senate, I am only posting those that have been approved by both the House & Senate and are awaiting the Governor’s signature.

We will keep you updated on bills that are signed into law in future postings.
