In the case in my mind- Gun shows at convention centers (Pasadena, GRB, etc)

I know the insurance companies "make" them post it, but if they "cannot" post it, then its a moot point, as its a gov't building
The operative language in Tex. Penal Code §30.06(e) is property "owned or leased by a governmental entity." It doesn't matter how rents, leases or is otherwise in control of the property. If it is "owned or leased by a governmental entity," §30.06 signs are not enforceable.

New Article: Stop Posting Unenforceable 30.06 Signs

Government property off-limits by statute.
The Texas Concealed Handgun License statute was created in 1995 with the passage of Senate Bill 60. Among the provisions in SB60 was the designation of certain governmental property that would be off-limits to Texas Concealed Handgun Licensees (CHLs) carrying self-defense handguns. In 1997, HB2909 passed that, among other things, created Tex. Penal Code §30.06, Trespass by a Holder of a License to Carry a Concealed Handgun, with its clear and unambiguous requirements for property owners to follow if they wished to bar entry to their property by CHLs carrying self-defense handguns. This was made necessary by the practice of posting small generic “no guns” decals on locations that could easily go unseen by CHLs entering property.
