There are always a cop or two on hand so I don't feel too exposed, but I just would rather not leave my weapon in the car if I don't have too. I think they have "traffic court" there during the day, but not at night when CC meetings are in session.
Can anybody give me a tune up on this?
If a governmental entity did not 30.06 post their meeting, then it is legal (or at least a defense to prosecution) to carry there.PC §46.035. UNLAWFUL CARRYING OF HANDGUN BY LICENSE HOLDER.
(c) A license holder commits an offense if the license holder intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries a handgun under the authority of Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code, regardless of whether the handgun is concealed, at any meeting of a g overn- mental entity.
(i) Subsections (b)(4), (b)(5), (b)(6), and (c) do not apply if the actor was not given effective notice under Section 30.06.
Now, the court thing is a different issue.
So I would say that if the location is a court, then the government meeting doesn't have to be 30.06 posted because you can't legally carry there anyway.PC §46.03. PLACES WEAPONS PROHIBITED.
(3) on the premises of any government court or offices utilized by the court, unless pursuant to written regulations or written authorization of the court;
(c) In this section:
(1) “Premises” has the meaning assigned by Section 46.035.
(f) It is not a defense to prosecution under this section that the actor possessed a handgun and was licensed to carry a concealed handgun under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code.
