    Is it illegal to drive through a school zone with a loaded gun in my truck in Texas?

    You can drive on school property with it too.

    Are you sure about that? As far as I knew school property was a no no.

    I was just curious as far as a school "zone" was concerned.

    I often wonder how long people have lived in Texas when questions come up like this. No offense meant, but it's bewildering sometimes.

    I say that in part also, because with so many people flooding Texas over the last several years, and most/many don't bother learning about the state they are invading, people get really freaked out, especially involving guns, because of the places they come from. In some cases, it can cause undue "issues".

    I can't imagine what would happen if someone drove around my area with a long gun in a gun rack in the back window. There'd be yankee accents that people thought they'd lost, screaming at 911 operators who are trying to calm them down enough to understand what they hell they are saying. :rofl:

    It wouldn't matter. Conceal carry is still OK as far as Texas law, on sidewalks, drive's, parking lots etc., just not on "premises", a described in 46.035 that tx posted.

    :happy0001:

    With a CHL you can carry a handgun out of your vehicle at a school.

    You can carry on "property" . Only place restricted is a building or a part of a building.


    Don't worry, we are not judging you. If I didn't teach this stuff I'd not likely have it figured out at all.
