Given the demographics of El Paso, I can assure you that anyone openly carrying a firearm will attract plenty of LEO attention IMMEDIATELY. As was pointed out, open carry is illegal in Texas - and strictly enforced in cities. El Paso isn't just some little podunk border town, contrary to what some might be imagining. It's a big, busy place, with tons of people going through it on their way to and from Juarez, one of the hotbeds of cocaine and methamphetamine manufacture and distribution and home to countless drug slayings. So....no...ain't no one carrying openly in El Paso for very long that isn't a LEO. Get out to a small country town (Texas has plenty of them), where everyone knows each other and the sheriff and a few deputies are the only law in town? Sure...you'll see open carry in places like that. But not in the cities.
