Penal Code §46.04: Unlawful Possession of a Firearm
Texas Penal Code §46.04 applies to both license and non-license holders.
- This section of the Penal Code explains when it is an offense for a person convicted of a felony to possess a firearm.
- It is important to note that having an LTC does not explicitly authorize you to possess a firearm. You could be ineligible to possess a firearm under state and/or federal laws, regardless of whether the Texas Department of Public Safety has taken administrative action against your Texas LTC.
