Re: Loaded?

Loaded or unloaded is completely irrelevant to unlawfully carrying a handgun. The law does not even specify that the weapon must be capable of functioning.

Nitpick time (nah, we never do that around here). :smile:

Only the driver or owner of the vehicle can carry.

The exception evaporates if the person is breaking a law other than a class C misdemeanor traffic violation. If someone is driving drunk, for example, the DA can pile on UCW.

Gov. Perry is in Turkey at the moment.

Sometimes he has a ceremony to sign bills in the presence of the sponsors and constituents. Otherwise, he'll just sign them when he has nothing better to do.
