Texas castle law

Has anyone heard about this law?

I was speaking to a peace officer about it and he said texans can now carry a hand gun in the car as long as it is in the glove compartment or hidden. We still have to have CCL to carry on our person. The car is now considered part of our castle.

So far Texas has had 56000 applications for the ccl this year.

What kind of carry law do you have in your state?

By the way I believe in CCL not open carry.

Yeah, when I went to NY with my family in 2004 to pay respects too ground zero. I got a lot of funny looks because of the way we talked. They looked real scared if I asked them a question.

Down here people wave to you even if they dont know you. We never honk either cause someone might shoot you.

Texican

I consider myself Texican because My family was from east Texas(Lockhart area) back when this was the Republic Of Texas. My grandfather was a cowboy who rolled his own cigs. New how to rope. When I go up North they think all Texans have a horse and truck. Maybe a gun but I dont know about a truck.
