I have lost count of the number of times I have open carried in SPECS, without at single comment from anyone. The only signs they have relate to Unlicensed Carry, therefore I see no reason to change my behaviour. I think if I were challenged by LEO I would politely inform him that I will be contacting my prepaid legal service and shall be looking forward to seeing him in court.
It seems to me that an officer would have to agree once you pointed to the sign where it plainly states "unlicensed" carry. Once producing your LTC, they would have to agree??? Surely???
Some officers are open to a calm and adult discussion, some are hard-headed and uncooperative. We're all human. They're just humans with a lot more authority.
If the LEO is unwilling to correct his/her misunderstanding of the law, don't fight the arrest and your first phonecall from jail should be to your lawyer to discuss how big of a boat the tax payers will be buying you through the local PD.

But the Sgt did make a public statement. I also emailed the reporter about the factual error. She emailed back that she would contact the officer.
Thank you for contacting the reporter. (who might not care at all to correct misinformation)
Have you tried contacting the officer's supervisor to suggest more law training, especially Texas Penal Code 46?
