But it would not be illegal in a non-OC state. At most you'd get a visit from law enforcement... leagally they could not ask you to cover up. Your property, yours rules. I think this applies everywhere.Texas Penal Code 46.02 implies that concealed is not required on your own premises (which includes your yard). This applies to all citizens; it is not a part of the Concealed Handgun laws.
On the other hand, Texas is not an open carry state, thus you might alarm your neighbors if you carry openly, even if on your own property. Brandishing, defined as open carry "in a way calculated to alarm", is prohibited; so it is important to make sure your actions are not likely to be viewed as "calculated to alarm".
There is no "Brandishing" offense in Texas. The above reference is to PC42.01, Disorderly Conduct, (8) displays a firearm or other deadly weapon in a public place in a manner calculated to alarm.Brandishing, defined as open carry "in a way calculated to alarm", is prohibited; so it is important to make sure your actions are not likely to be viewed as "calculated to alarm".
Can you show us the exact text of the ordinance?Here in Wichita they have an ordinance that there will be NO open carry,the state though allows OC.
But what im getting at is the ordinance I think says that there shall be no OC in public ..my land is NOT public..is it?
That grammatical structure indicates to me that the OC prohibition does not extend to property open to the public if such property is on your private "land", whether owned, leased, or rented."Carrying on one's person any unconcealed, loaded firearm, while on property open to the public, except when on one's land or in one's abode or fixed place of business"
