State of Texas v. Román Law Office Client (October 2020)

Our client is a young man.  The Court appointed us as his attorney.  He was stopped for a traffic violation while riding on his motorcycle.  Our client admitted that he had a concealed handgun within his pants.  He was charged with unlawful possession of a firearm.  The State offered a good plea deal, but the fact is that our client had every right to carry the firearm.

The Texas Motorist Protection Act , permits any law-abiding Texas resident the legal right to carry a handgun inside their motor vehicle in Texas without a Handgun License to Carry or any other permit.

Lawful carry of a gun while in a vehicle in Texas only requires the following conditions:

  1.  The handgun must NOT be in plain view; it must be concealed.
  2. You are NOT engaged in criminal activity (excluding Class C traffic misdemeanors).
  3. Federal law does NOT prohibit you from possessing a firearm.
  4. You are NOT a member of a criminal gang.

Furthermore the firearm must be concealed or hidden from view. The gun owner, even without a Carry License, is free to wear it in a holster as long as he/she stays within the vehicle.
