The Texas Legislature Passed Ten Bills Protecting Your Second Amendment Rights During the 2019 Session.  These Measures All Take Effect on September 1.

House Bill 121 provides a legal defense for License To Carry holders who unknowingly enter establishments posted with 30.06 or 30.07 signs, as long they promptly leave when verbally informed of the policy.  

House Bill 302 prohibits “no firearms” clauses in future residential leases and protects tenants’ rights to possess lawfully-owned firearms and ammunition in dwelling units and on manufactured home lots, and to transport their guns directly between their personal vehicles and these locations. 

House Bill 1143 prevents school districts from effectively prohibiting the possession of firearms in private motor vehicles on school property by limiting their authority to regulate the manner in which they are stored in locked cars and trucks. 

House Bill 1177 protects citizens from being charged with a crime for carrying a handgun without a License To Carry while evacuating from an area during a declared state or local disaster, or while returning to that area. 

House Bill 1791 closes loopholes in the state's "wrongful exclusion" law that cities, counties and state agencies have been using to restrict License To Carry holders in government buildings. 

House Bill 2363 allows foster parents to store firearms in a safe and secure manner while making them more readily accessible for personal protection purposes. 

House Bill 3231 improves and modernizes Texas’ firearms preemption law, specifically with regard to zoning authority that could be otherwise be used by cities and counties to circumvent state law and regulate the sale or transfer of firearms and ammunition at the local level. 

Senate Bill 535 strikes "churches, synagogues, or other places of worship" from the prohibited locations list in the Penal Code, clarifying that these places have the same right enjoyed by most other controllers of private property in the state to decide whether to allow LTC holders on-premises. 

Senate Bill 741 prohibits a property owners' association from including or enforcing a provision in a dedicatory instrument that prohibits, restricts, or has the effect of prohibiting or restricting any person who is otherwise authorized from lawfully possessing, transporting, or storing a firearm. 

Senate Bill 772 provides civil liability protection to business establishments which choose not to post 30.06/30.07 signs, making them less vulnerable to frivolous lawsuits and giving them an incentive to adopt permissive policies for the carrying of handguns by law-abiding citizens on their premises.
