How Important are Open Carry Signs?

How important are open carry signs and what is an open carry sign anyhow?  Beginning January 1, 2016 gun owners who posses a concealed handgun license will be able to legally carry their handgun openly on their hips or a shoulder holster.  This law was signed by Governor Abbott in Pflugerville, TX on June 13, 2015.

CHL Prohibited - Open Carry 30.07 must be similarThe next debate will be over the correct signage.  Many gun owners have been criticizing establishments that use the current 30.06 sign to prohibit lawful CHL holders from entering a premises with their firearm by calling them out on social media and other websites.

gunbuster not enforceable - Open Carry Legal

Gunbuster signs are not enforceable by law.

The fun is just getting started though.  In January if a business does not want lawful gun owners to carry a handgun  in their business openly they must erect a 30.07 sign which only applies to open carry.


“Pursuant to Section 30.07, Penal Code (trespass by license holder with an openly carried handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (handgun licensing law), may not enter this property with a handgun that is carried openly.”

If the business does not want any lawfully possessed handguns they must erect both signs in a prominent location and self designating their premises as a "gun free zone." This will be an easy way for you to determine where you want to spend your money.

So, keep calm, carry on, spend your money wisely and support businesses where you are welcome.  As for me, if I am not welcome with my handgun I am simply not welcome!
