The wording of Section 46.02 of the Texas Penal Code actually REQUIRES an unlicensed person to carry a concealed handgun in certain circumstances.
Methinks you meant to write that the unlicensed person has to conceal the handgun if he or she wishes to carry it. I don't think unlicensed Texans are REQUIRED to own and carry a handgun yet, although this is
TX, perhaps we just need to give the Legislature a few more years to fix that...
GREAT post otherwise, I'm just giving you grief.
