You're incorrect, but it's hard to keep it all straight:

http://law.onecle.com/texas/penal/46.15.00.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

§ 46.15. NONAPPLICABILITY. (a) Sections 46.02 and 46.03
do not apply to:

" is on the person's own premises or premises under
the person's control
unless the person is an employee or agent of
the owner of the premises and the person's primary responsibility
is to act in the capacity of a security guard to protect persons or
property, in which event the person must comply with Subdivision "

"is engaging in lawful hunting, fishing, or other
sporting activity on the immediate premises where the activity is
conducted, or is en route between the premises and the actor's
residence, if the weapon is a type commonly used in the activity;"
This still doesn't explain by what authority the sales associates & other staff are able to open carry at The Arms Room. If the owner can't confer authority (as stated earlier in this thread) and they're not employed as security, how is it so?

Re: Open Carry at Business

Interesting. Most of the sales associates at The Arms Room in League City open carry both in the store and on the range. Are you guys saying that they're all breaking the law by doing so?
