  1. Texas forbids all forms of open carry is not completly true. You may open carry on your own property or property that you control or have permission to do so on other property. I open carry at work for example and I work in auto repair.

    Long guns are always open carried.

  2. Too bad Texas foesn’t follow AZ where we can carry openly or concealed & we don’t need a permit from the gov’t to do so.
