Just got back from picking up my sister and brother-in-law from Love Field... There was signage on the door stating that I under section 30.05 (not a typo) of the penal code that it was illegal to bring a firearm into the building, whether licensed or not...
I looked it up and 30.05 deals with criminal tresspass and the main thing I noticed (in regards to legal CHL carry), is that it says it is a defense to prosecution if the person was carrying a concealed handgun and a license issued under Subchapter H, Chappter 411, Government Code, to carry a concealed handgun of the same category the person was carrying.
So what I read is that they posted a sign about criminal tresspass, and that if I carried in the non-secure area I was protected from prosecution by the same code they cite... Am I reading this wrong? Isn't it kosher to carry in the non-secure parts of the airport?

You got it right, about the non-secure areas. The sign should have been posted as 30.06 and it must meet the requirements of that section, or the sign is not legal notice.
