I will be travelling to Houston for a conference and will be walking around downtown Houston at night. I have every intention of carrying (I am a CHL licensee) while I am down there.
I was thinking of taking a Greyhound bus to avoid the hassle and cost of driving, gas, parking etc. However imgaine my chagrin when I learned that Greyhound has a NO (LEGAL) WEAPONS policy. Not only am I prohibited from having the weapon ON the bus, I can't even CHECK it in a bag?
My question is - what are the ramifications if I defy Greyhound and either carry it or simply check it in a bag (not an attractive choice either)? If it's simply violating private policy I can understand getting kicked off the bus. But is it a crime?
Also - do they do security screenings an airport with metal detectors?
Any and all advice is appreciated.
