Texas does not generally restrict the carry of long guns. There are a couple of laws to be aware of.

PENAL CODE TITLE 10. OFFENSES AGAINST PUBLIC HEALTH, SAFETY, AND MORALS CHAPTER 46. WEAPONS

http://tlo2.tlc.state.tx.us/statutes/docs/PE/content/htm/pe.010.00.000046.00.htm#46.05.00

See (a)(3) 46.01 will give you the definition

PENAL CODE TITLE 9. OFFENSES AGAINST PUBLIC ORDER AND DECENCY CHAPTER 42. DISORDERLY CONDUCT AND RELATED OFFENSES

See (a) 7-9


PENAL CODE CHAPTER 22. ASSAULTIVE OFFENSES


Do you know Texas law regarding the use of force and deadly force?

PENAL CODE CHAPTER 9. JUSTIFICATION EXCLUDING CRIMINAL RESPONSIBILITY

Mine is not am sbr so that part i dont have to worry about. And i understand when i can and cant use force or deadly force, im a chl holder, but if i wanted to carry my ar all the time in my truck just in case or if it was a natural disaster or a shtf situation and i grab my bail out bag and ar and i happened to get stopped by the man....iam within my legal writes...yes?

Little off-topic, I hold a Tx CHL and I own an AR-15 pistol. I has a virgin POF lower and a 10.5 upper and a custom buffer tube that will not accept a standard stock body.

Technically I *could* conceal carry it - as long as I conceal it.

BUT I can't carry an auto knife in public - go figure.

txinvestigator - your a state apologist - can you justify this discrepancy?

No trolling here, txinvestigator has made his views very clear about in regards to firearms related liberty. Based on what he has said on these boards, he supports the BATFE FTB and their non-documented methods of firearm testing.......in secret.......as well as paying for testimony, and now officially declaring that if your semi-automatic rifle fails for any reason - you are guilty of manufacturing/posessing/transferring an unregistered machine gun. This behaviour is incompatible with the liberty our forefathers gave their lives for. Whether the term "state apologist" is taken as derogitory is up to the audience, but based on his actions - it is applicable.

With that being said, txinvestigator does posess a valuable amount of knowledge on Texas law - as asinine as most of the laws are, it certainly is helpful to know them to dodge the legal minefield so to speak. This is where my post goes at least slightly on-topic. The original posted asked about carrying an AR-pattern rifle in his vehicle.

I did pay the state extortion money and asked nicely if I could exercise my enumerated right of carrying a sidearm for personal protection. I also own an AR-pistol, it is legally a pistol and therefor I may carry it concealed. I never do, as this would be very awkward and would require clothing that is incompatible with Texas heat. It does make it convienient to carry a loaded concealed rifle-caliber weapon in my car though.

Now to the legal discrepancy that I hoped txinvestigator could shed some light one. I recently purchased a Boker automatic (switchblade) knife, I know that I cannot carry it in public based on my knowledge on Tx law. BUT, technically I CAN carry an AR-pistol - maybe even with a Beta-C mag if I got creative.........but a 2.5" blade auto knife is verboten..........

Can anyone explain this?

While your points are certainly valid, the term "state apologist" is definitely derogatory. If you are genuinely interesting in an answer, I believe your likelihood of getting one would be greater without such aspersions.
