It's not perfect, but it's a step in the right direction.

I read last week the Police officers called in and tried to get it changed to where an officer could question someone open carrying. There was talk of it being changed. Anyone know if that was added in or not?

It is my understanding that the final version does allow a peace officer to question someone carrying openly to determine if they have a license. Open carry will require a handgun license (currently called a CHL, same requirements.) The new law will take effect on January 1, 2016.

I would be happier with constitutional carry.

The amendment was pulled from the final bill, yet the 4th amendment and case law does not support allowing the police to stop someone without probable cause.

Makes complete sense. Just as an officer cannot stop you just to see if you have a driver's license, why could one approach you just to see if you have a CHL?

Actually police officers can stop us and check just to see if we have a drivers license, 521 in the transportation code. It isn't usually done, but it is legal.

I don't know of anyone who actually does it, but it's there.

Texas Transportation Code
Sec. 521.025. LICENSE TO BE CARRIED AND EXHIBITED ON DEMAND; CRIMINAL PENALTY. (a) A person required to hold a license under Section 521.021 shall:(1) have in the person's possession while operating a motor vehicle the class of driver's license appropriate for the type of vehicle operated; and(2) display the license on the demand of a magistrate, court officer, or peace officer.(b) A peace officer may stop and detain a person operating a motor vehicle to determine if the person has a driver's license as required by this section.
