What is constitutional carry in the state of Texas? Let's ask Austin lawyer Sam Bassett in this Ask the Lawyers Quick Question.

Sam Bassett:

Constitutional carry in Texas is a bill that just passed and was signed by Governor Abbott, that is a bill that allows Texans to carry handguns or any other firearms without a license, without any kind of a concealed permit. It also allows open carry, which means the gun can be holstered and public view. So that's what constitutional carry means. It basically eliminates many of the illegalities of carrying a handgun in Texas.
