im going to houston at the end of next month and i was wondering what exactly are the laws in texas considering possesin of a handgun in my car.
Anyone who is not a gang member, who is not a prohibited person, and who is not committing any violation of the law other than a Class C violation of the Traffic Code, may possess a handgun in or en route to any motor vehicle they own or control, so long as the handgun is concealed from ordinary observation.
Nope, no magazine or assault weapon laws. Also, while you're traveling (e.g., in between New Mexico and Houston, each way) you can carry on your person outside of your car in addition to inside it; technically, you can carry openly at that time as well, but you might not want the potential hassel on vacation.
Oh yeah loaded and anywhere in your car as long as it is concealed when I'm taking a long drive I'll usually have it in a holster in the cubbyhole on the drivers side door but you can have it anywhere you like locked loaded and ready.
