They undoubtedly could keep out license holders from other states if they wished to, but they would be hard pressed to charge them with a crime if they managed to get in, as there is no such statute.
Oh I don’t believe that at all. Regardless of which of the legislature’s Security rules you break, I will bet there is a catchall statute that you can be charged under.
It would be up to the Travis County DA and having scoured the penal code I can’t seem to find one that would apply. I guess they could try ‘Capitol’ Murder and see if it would stick... Not sure I’d want to be the proverbial test case, though. :smilelol5:

Reciprocity would be largely meaningless if they didn't.
Sorry if I wasn't clear. I was referring to the State Capitol, which does not operate under the LTC law (e.g. reciprocity and all that).
What law,do they operate under? :???:
Their own. :) The Legislature makes its own security rules, because of separation of powers issues IIRC. The prohibition on state and local government entities banning licensed carry and the "fines for signs" law do not apply to the Legislature.
They undoubtedly could keep out license holders from other states if they wished to, but they would be hard pressed to charge them with a crime if they managed to get in, as there is no such statute. That, and I have it on good authority that CJ Grisham of OCT fame has carried in the capitol building. Since he doesn’t qualify (for now) for a Texas LTC I assume he was carrying with a reciprocal license.
