Until the time when the phrase “shall not be infringed” is interpreted as it is stated in the United States Constitution, firearm owners, firearm businesses, and other businesses will continue to struggle with determining and complying with the continued onslaught of federal and state restrictions. To help in this endeavor, this volume serves as a valuable resource for determining what the firearm laws are in Texas. It pulls together the statutes, administrative rules, and agency guidelines to help understand the complexity of the firearm laws and explains what is required to comply with them. Because of its organization and extensive table of contents, it serves as a quick reference and procedural guide. It also points out some of the problems with the firearm laws in Texas and those needing correction or elimination.
