By my reading, if you post the property, it is posted 30.06. You can't post partial 30.06, and the sign has to be exactly word for word, nothing missing, nothing added. The sign says, in part,
"a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (concealed handgun law), may not enter this property with a concealed handgun"
So, I may stand corrected about folks carrying under the authority of the MPA, because 30.06 specifically forbids people carrying under CHL authority. I guess maybe that means it does not impact folks without a CHL who are carrying under the MPA. But, no matter what else the company says in their statement, it can't change the law. So, an employee carrying inside a building would definitely be in violation of 30.06/30.07 as far as I can see. You could hope that maybe they wouldn't press charges, but nothing prevents them from it.
I disagree with the poster who said it was a class C misdemeanor unless you are asked to leave and refuse. If you look at 30.06 (a)(2)(A) (as compared to (a)(2)(B)), note that it is A or
B. So you commit the offense just by entering the property with proper signage. and per (d), the offense is a Class A misdemeanor. How do you get to the conclusion of it being a class C misdemeanor?
I believe there is an out for a CHL having a weapon in their locked car due to the parking lot law, which by the way, only applies to CHL holders. So, I guess the non-CHLs are okay with gun in the car due to 30.06/30.07 not applying to them at all and CHLs are okay with a gun in the car due to the parking lot law (LC 52.061). But either will be looking at a year +$4k fine if they are found with a firearm in a building. So, again, still big negative changes all brought to us by the open carry folks. :-(
