Trespass by Holder of License to Carry Concealed Handgun in Fort Worth

Generally, a License to Carry permits gun owners to travel in public or private with a concealed gun. However, Texas law permits businesses or homeowners to bar concealed weapons from coming onto their property. This law is found in Texas Penal Code Section 30.06. It states that a license holder commits an offense if they bring a concealed weapon on the property of another “without effective consent” and have received notice that entering or remaining on the property with a concealed handgun was forbidden by the property owner.

A person cannot be guilty under this law if there was explicitly or through the posting of “30.06 signage,” a warning that concealed weapons were barred from the property. It is also important to remember that there are certain places where weapons are prohibited, regardless of whether there are any warnings posted.

Violating this law is a Class A misdemeanor, which is punishable by up to one year in jail and/or a fine of up to $4,000. In most cases of a first offense, probation or deferred adjudication are possible.
