    I am not sure how many people get busted on this technicality but it just takes the "he has a gun” panic out of transferring your gun from your holster to your vehicle or from your car to your home

    As it's written today, the word "intentionally" is a part of the requirement under PC 46.035 (a)... so if you open your jacket on purpose in public (this excludes the precursor of potential use of force), you've screwed yourself.. but wardrobe malfunctions would not be included

    However it doesn't stop someone from reporting an incident and exaggerating, resulting in your having to go through the expense and time legally (with a suspended CHL while charges are pending).

    So a CHL holder would get some relief from the later (as well as time and money spent by legal and state review...thankfully.) I'd say that's a big gap fill...and needed.

    So, as usual you can beat the rap but not the ride.

    one more law that passes is when you get a CHL its for any gun. used to be revolver or semi auto.... not any more. now its just a gun; handgun


    The Texas Legislature has changed the law for concealed handgun license holders to allow them to carry any category of weapon.
    Lawmakers gave the bill final passage on Sunday and the measure now goes to the governor for his signature.
    Previously, people licensed to have concealed handguns could only carry the type of pistol they used during their training and qualification.
    The new bill allows license holders to carry any type of handgun, regardless of what category of weapon they used to qualify.

    The burden of proof is on them and since there is no brandishing laws in Texas and it legal to show your gun to avoid trouble that will be a tough prove

    The definition of brandishing is to threaten in anger for show - that isn't allowed. But it is legal if used as a deterrence. So motive/intent would come into play as to whether you'd have to spend some time in court.
