Not asking for any opinions on good or bad, beat that to death already.

My question is , to carry a gun "open" do you still have to have a CHL?? Been asked this but not heard the correct answer..

Thanks

There is no legal open carry law as of now that I know of, only CHL. When and if the laws are changed then we will know.
I was speaking of handguns because the reference of a CHL.

There is for long guns.

No. Opn carry of long guns in Texas requires no license of any kind.

Not in Texas.
I think Texas needs to catch up with Oklahoma on this. In Oklahoma you can open carry if you have your CHL.
Also, it is lawful for a person who is licensed to carry a handgun under the Oklahoma Self-Defense Act to store it out of view in a locked vehicle when the vehicle is left unattended on school property. (first I said not in Texas but I think maybe it is legal after googling it)

Hate to say it but Oklahoma has kind of been outdoing Texas on gun laws.

TFF caribou has it right You can open carry a rifle. there is no license required for that. The open carry law being pushed here in Texas is for the open carry of handguns.

I'd like to be able to exercise my God-given and "constitutionally protected" right to carry what I please in the manner I please without being arrested or questioned. I doubt I'll be able to do that anytime real soon though. Maybe the legislature will get it right this year. You won't see me holding my breath, though.

I should have clarified, IF, Texas passes open carry, will a CHL even be needed anymore?

I had a Constable who teaches CHL classes ask me this, I think he is worried if no more licensing is required , his beer money business might be over with.

If "open carry" passes, doesn't that take the "concealed" out of CHL?

And since there is no license required to own a handgun, why require one to carry it in open view once "concealed" is no longer a requirement.

Just saying.

You can bet that if open carry passes there will be some kind of license/permit required. It's all about the money. If CHL is replaced by open carry you can bet they will figure out some way to line the State coffers.

There's no such thing as a God-given right to arm yourself.

My bet is they would do it the same as Oklahoma did you must have your CHL to be allowed to Open Carry. But I don't know if Texas will pass this.

There should be no license required at all to carry open or concealed. If you can legally own a gun you can carry a gun.

I see people open carry all the time up here no matter the law. If Texas OKs it you can bet they're be licensing so I guess I'll have to sit out another round....
