CLEonline.com, together with the Houston Bar Association, are pleased to present a special online CLE program designed to address who can and cannot own firearms in Texas. The presentation will cover laws concerning concealed and open carry, campus carry, and general self-defense considerations. There will also be a discussion regarding advising clients as to fire arms laws, myths versus realities, and personal beliefs versus actual laws. This course features streaming video and audio (as well as downloadable MP3 audio) presentations from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association on March 24, 2017. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session.

Some of the subjects for this course include:

    • General Requirements

    • Effects of License to Carry

    • Considerations for Homeowners Associations

    • Rights of Property Owners

    • Special Firearms

    • Non-Firearm Prohibited Carrying Weapons

    • Illegal Knives

    • What's Coming Next?
