    Well it doesn't matter what the poll says, Texans are allowed to carry in their cars regardless of having a CHL or not.

    Thre is also an article on this KXAN page about deputies "minimizing a gun threat".

    I have never had a gun threaten me phisically or verbally. All the guns I have ever talked to have just kind of layed there inanimately without answering, much less making any threats.

    I wonder if they meant a student who posessed a gun making a threat?

    Anyone traveling through(of age,not felon,etc.)

    Austin is probably the most liberal city in Texas(UT).Still the results are somewhat surprising so far.

    I live in Austin, what are the exact rules of being able to carry in a car? I use to carry a shotgun in my truck but the way things are so weird in this city now days I don't carry anything. What are the laws about carrying in a car without a CCL and what can you carry?

    Concealed loaded handguns may be carried anywhere in a vehicle.
    Loaded long guns may also be carried anywhere.Long guns can be in plain view or secured in commercial gun cases or window racks.

    Unless you're doing anything illegal, then they can charge you with a weapons violation on top of the other crime. (Like if you're robbing a bank...)

    Still 43 - 53, you can have a loaded handgun in your truck but you cannot have a liquor bottle with the seal broken.

    It's still down 44 to 52. Need more..

    And BTW, in Texas you cannot just carry a handgun in your car and not expect to get arrested. You have a defense of prosecution if you are travelling (the definition of travelling is not clearly stated). So, it's up to a judge which means potentially going to jail depending on the attitude/demeanor/belief system of the officer that pulls you over. The only way to be sure you're not going to get hassled and end up in jail is to have your CHL.

    Long guns and shotguns, yes legal anywhere at anytime in your vehicle unless you are breaking the law or entering federal property (i.e. military bases).
