    Heading to Texas...from Oklahoma

    I confused a little about the no firearms sign. Am I allowed to carry in the Hotel I'm staying at? The signs here in Oklahoma don't hold any legal weight other than trespassing on private property. Any input would be helpful. I've already been to Handgunlaw.us. I just wanted get input from anyone who would clarify this.

    I travel all over 7 states and just came out of OK,KS and Tx this week and I carried the whole time. Texas is pretty cool about carrying...the only time you cant is when you see a 30.06 sign...I have yet to see one at a resturaunt or hotel..(the only time I have ever seen a sign at a hotel was in Wichta,KS at the Hyatt...they had a gunbuster on the door). When in a resturaunt I try not to set in the bar area..( I travel for business and eat alone alot and that is where they always try to set me) carry and don't be worried about it...in TX if they don't want you to carry somewhere it is usually very well marked...

    As long as there isn't a legal 30.06 sign,letters must be at least 1" high and contrasting colors and in English and Spanish,anything else holds no legal weight,below is a legal signage
    In order to provide notice that entry on property by a license holder with a concealed handgun is forbidden, Penal Code Section 30.06(c)(3)(A) requires that a written communication contain the following language:

    "PURSUANT TO SECTION 30.06, PENAL CODE (TRESPASS BY HOLDER OF A LICENSE TO CARRY A CONCEALED HANDGUN) A PERSON LICENSED UNDER SUBCHAPTER H, CHAPTER 411, GOVERNMENT CODE (CONCEALED HANDGUN LAW), MAY NOT ENTER THIS PROPERTY WITH A CONCEALED HANDGUN."

    "CONFORME A LA SECCIÓN 30.06 DEL CÔDIGO PENAL (TRASPASAR PORTANDO ARMAS DE FUEGO) PERSONAS CON LICENCIA BAJO DEL SUB-CAPITULO H, CAPITULO 411, CODIGO DE GOBIERNO (LEY DE PORTAR ARMAS), NO DEBEN ENTRAR A ESTA PROPIEDAD PORTANDO UN ARMA DE FUEGO."

    I have seen very few signs,usually on Hospitals,Professional sporting events,or in bars/restaurants that derive 51% or more in onsite alcohol sales,there should be a big red 51 in a circle with a slash on the door.I have never seen a Hotel posted

    Keep in mind that any time you are verbally asked/told to leave private property, for any reason, or no reason at all, by the owner, manager, or other person in control of the premises, you MUST leave, or be subject to arrest for plain old vanilla trespassing. Just thought I would mention that, for those who carry weapons past a legally inadequate sign.

    I have always thought the signage did carry weight here. However, statutes are hard to read so maybe I am mistaken. Though I know it carries weight in certain places, I though it extended to business owner's as well. Please enlighten me as I would love to ignore those signs at car dealers and the state fair(the only places I have seen them up).

    farmerbyron, on private property it's not illegal to carry but if caught you can be chargesd with trespass. The "no guns" signs on private property is the right of that person or entity. You can have anyone arrested for trespass if you don't like what they are doing on your property or they are told to leave and they don't.

    Well what is the penalty for trespass? Seems that has more teeth than just leave and not be charged. It looks to me like whether a sign carries the weight of law is largely dependent on the business owner's decision.
