Re: OPEN CARRY COUNTDOWN-

At 12:00 I will walk out to my Jeep, get in and drive to the gas station, fill it up, come home, and call my my first Texas OC experience good.

Re: OPEN CARRY COUNTDOWN-

I am truly going to miss this thread, it's the second most entertaining thing to come from HB910 passing. The only thing more entertaining is OCT claiming to have passed HB910 when they did their best to kill it. Just under 3 hours left.

You broke the law. A firearm carried in your car (with or without a CHL) must be concealed. Lucky you weren't pulled over, or you wouldn't be sitting there typing that.
Nope, he can open carry while traveling. It is the law or more specifically, it is an exception to apply the law.
Supportive evidence: Section 46.15 (b)(2).

Sec. 46.15. NONAPPLICABILITY.
(a) Sections 46.02 and 46.03 do not apply to:
.....
(b) Section 46.02 does not apply to a person who:
....
(2) is traveling;
My concern would be the very likely probability that an officer making a stop would not be aware of that law and once he saw the gun in the open would not likely be in a mood to listen to me explain the law. Think I'll keep mine concealed.
Additionally there is the issue that there is little to no modern case law, if any, on the definition of travelling. The judge/jury may decide that any distance that is great enough that one might prefer to use transportation is travelling OR that one must be crossing the state line, or some obscure/arcane definition where someone has no protection under the travelling exemption.
