I expect that you're right, Trog - if an establishment must post a 30.06 notice, there is no logical reason to treat them differently than any other place.

But my experience of watching the antics of various legislatures for many decades leads me to suspect that just clearing up the logic of the wording is not sufficient reason to get a legislator to devote time and effort to changes amidst the clamor of competing interests. To get anything done, they must trade votes and favors with other legislators, and they tend to reserve those trades for things which they consider significant - which means that we should do that, too.
If you like laws and sausages, you should never watch either one being made.

And given the cost experienced by Michael, I'll conceed Rick's point that some wording covering accidental exposure of a concealed handgun would be nice to have.

City of Watuaga vs. Mark Michael: Those charges were dismissed. There is no way to stop some ambitious or otherwise dysfunctional cop or prosecutor from doing something silly, but it's unlikely to get very far - as this case did not.

I'm opposed to open carry. I want criminals to be in doubt about who is carrying and who isn't.

I assume that by "flashing" or "printing", you refer to section 42.01a(8), Disorderly Conduct, which refers to "displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm." As long as you don't deliberately uncover your handgun, it's hard to see how that would be interpreted to apply by a reasonable person.

Someone else earlier refered to hospitals and churchs - the current law is pretty clear that in both cases you must be given effective notice.
