    MN - Moving to Texas soon. Have FL Permit - Do I need to bother with TX.

    Live in MN now.
    Have MN Permit (which Texas does not recognize) and also FL non-resident (which Texas does.)

    Will be returning to live in the great state of Texas next year. Since I just had to renew my MN and recently got my FL, do I need to bother getting TX permit when I move?

    I am reading up on TX laws and don't think I will buying anything soon.

    Other than learning laws and NICS exemption, any reason I should bother getting TX permit until my other expires.

    Nope. Your Florida will be sufficient.

    You don't need the TxCHL right away as the FL covers you. I would plan on getting it eventually however. Allow overlap with the FL permit so neither expires at the same time.

    I haven't ever heard that before. Do you know where to find the statute?

    Disregard, I just noticed you have a non-resident FL concealed weapons permit.

    You do want to check Florida's laws concerning changes of address. I know it's not printed on the permit, but there is a requirement to report it. You can find more here...

    When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier!

    I forgot about that.
    It is the stupid Federal Gun Free Zone Act. It was declared unconstitutional in mid-90's but they later re-passed.
    The new law has not made it back to supremes but has been upheld at lower levels.
    The language of law only give exemption if you have a permit from that state.
    The law says "licensed to do so by the State in which the school zone is located".
    The feds interpret that to mean issued by that state that the school is located in.

    Should also note that it is also a illegal to discharge in a school. No exemption given for lawful discharge.
