The Firearm Carry Act of 2021
Texas has passed House Bill 1927, the Firearm Carry Act of 2021, which will take effect on Sept. 1, 2021.
The new law will allow any law-abiding Texan or other law-abiding citizen (regardless of the state in which he or
she resides) who is at least 21 years old to open carry or concealed carry a firearm in public without needing a
special permit or license. This, of course, does not apply to any individual who is prohibited by law from possessing
a firearm (e.g. a felon or an individual with a conviction of domestic abuse). Though the Firearm Carry Act of 2021
applies to both handguns and long guns, this guide is specifically geared toward the carry of handguns.
*It is important to note that any individual who is currently prohibited from possessing firearms under state and/or
federal law will not gain the right to possess or carry a firearm under this new state law.
