This thread says that churches are not off limits unless they post 30.06 signs. However the penal code is not clear to me. I've always carried at my church and he apparently is afraid to.
Churches are NOT off-limits. The confusion comes because many people do not read to the end of PC §46.035 where you find this: "(i) Subsections (b)(4), (b)(5), (b)(6), and (c) do not apply if the actor was not given effective notice under Section 30.06."

They only read this far: (b) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries a handgun under the authority of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, regardless of whether the handgun is concealed, on or about the license holder's person: ...
(6) on the premises of a church, synagogue, or other established place of religious worship.

Re: "Off Limits" locations for CHL's

School parking lots are NOT part of the premises of the school.

You CAN keep your handgun locked in your car on the school parking lot.

I am not going to include any "off-limits" locations according to federal law.

What? We aren't going to discuss post offices? :smile:
