What is Open Carry Law in Texas
In the second most populous US state of Texas, the open carrying of firearms is now permitted. The "Open Carry" movement had fought for years to change the law.
With a law that came into force on January 1st, guns can be carried openly in holsters on the belt or around the shoulder at work, shopping or eating in a restaurant.
More than 40 of the 50 US states already allow the open carrying of weapons, but with various restrictions. Proponents of "open carry" laws argue that the guns on display would deter potential criminals.
Critics counter that police officers find it difficult to distinguish responsible carriers of weapons from criminals. In addition, there is no evidence that states with "open carry" laws are safer or that there are fewer shootings there.
In the future, shops and restaurants in Texas will be able to decide for themselves whether they want to deny entry to customers with openly carried weapons by displaying appropriate signs. Proponents of "Open Carry" have already threatened not to spend any more money there.
Weapons carried openly or concealed remain forbidden in bars, amusement parks, places of worship, courts and at sporting events.
