It is the considered opinion of the Self Defense News Blog that each and every one of its readers obtain a Texas license to carry in 2017. We stand firm with this opinion even if the reader of the Self Defense Blog does not actually reside within the boarders of the state of Texas. You may ask in response to this assertion why the Self Defense News Blog holds this opinion. That question is certainly understandable because the Texas state license to carry a firearm is only applicable within the jurisdiction of the state of Texas. As such, one might legitimately wonder why a non resident of Texas would want to obtain said license.
THE REASON FOR A TEXAS LICENSE TO CARRY
There are several reasons why a person who does not live in Texas would want to obtain a license to carry in the state of Texas. One reason might be that the person in question has future plans to travel to Texas and wants to carry a firearm when he or she gets there. Another reason might be that the person in question is a collector of licenses to carry and needs a Texas license to complete his or her collection.
Once a person obtains such a license he or she will then be able to carry a firearm within the state of Texas. This license allows the person who holds said license to carry a firearm in most public places. There are some exceptions and we invite all Self Defense News Blog readers to research the law to find out just what these specific exceptions happen to be. Once the reader of the Self Defense News Blog readers learn about these exceptions they will then know where they can carry a firearm and where they cannot carry a firearm.
