    I'm not sure where you got this information, but a Texas Concealed Handgun License is not free if you are over 65 years of age. An original license would be $70 if you are age 60 or over.

    but, this weekend I was visiting with an old hillbilly gunsmith in Podunk central Texas and he got me thinking, granted this guy hasn't bought a new set of overalls in 50 yrs, but he has been the only gunsmith in town for 30 years. He was explaining the difference in carrying a gun and wearing a gun, as in, you wear your shirt, you don't carry it. He basically said that the 2nd amendment says that as long as we are carrying for defense purposes, not drinking and not committing a crime, then we are legally allowed to carry a concealed gun, and everything I've been able to find is for license holders, I cant find any documentation stating that Texas requires a CHL to carry a ccw... So it's kind of grey area because what he said makes sense, somewhat, we have the right to keep and BEAR arms for our defense, where in the constitution does it say we have to be licensed by the state to execute our 2nd amendment right?... So all having a chl does is give you way more regulations and harsher punishments.

    I'm really confused now.
    You are seriously considering constitutional law theories from a Hillbilly gunsmith? Are you going to look him up when you are in need of a Cardiothoracic surgeon?

    Okay, I'm not saying the law is rocket science, it's not - but YOU need to know another man's limitations.

    Example:

    Gun fixin': Go to gunsmith
    Car fixin': Go to mechanic
    Law fixin': Go to lawyer
    Body fixin': Go to doctor

    I don't think so.
