PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS!
As part of their efforts to prevent violence in the workplace, many employers prohibit guns on their premises. Such policies are lawful under the new open carry law, and Texas law already requires business owners that want to keep guns from their property to notify the public “orally or by written communication” that guns are prohibited on their property.
Certain locations will remain gun-free as a result of provisions in the law, which was signed by Texas Governor Greg Abbott: firearms are not permitted to be carried in churches, jails, hospitals, and establishments where alcohol comprises the majority of revenue.
To prohibit concealed handguns in your business, you must post signs in an obvious manner, clearly visible to the public. Gun holders who ignore those signs risk violating state trespassing laws and would face penalties and fines.
