I'm planning a trip to Dallas in a couple of weeks and of course am planning on taking my pistol with me. Just as a kind of "heads up" I looked up the Texas CCW laws online. Unfortunately, the wording is confusing me a little. I'm planning on going to Six Flags while down there. The following is from the brochure from the DPS that I found online:
In an amusement park. "Amusement park" means a permanent
indoor or outdoor facility or park where amusement rides are
available for use by the public that is located in a county with a population
of more than one million, encompasses at least 75 acres in
surface area, is enclosed with access only through controlled entries,
is open for operation more than 120 days in each calendar year, and
has security guards on the premises at all times. The term does not
include any public or private driveway, street, sidewalk or walkway,
parking lot, parking garage, or other parking area. No posting is
required by the Act. Violation is a Class A misdemeanor under Texas
Penal Code, §46.035. This subsection shall not apply if the actor was
not given effective notice under Texas Penal Code §30.06.
Now, it says that no posting is necessary, but then it goes on to say that the subsection shall not apply if notice of 30.06 is not given. What exactly constitutes notice of 30.06 if no signage is required? I really would like to rides some rollercoasters, but I'm not wild about the idea of being around so many people unarmed. Just for the record, I'll be carrying a P3AT in my pocket on this trip.
Someone wiser than me please let me know what they mean.
