Otherwise, any sign on public property that says no firearms only applies to people who are open carrying legally. For permit holders, those signs do NOT apply. We can carry ANYWHERE except for a very few limits.

At my church a couple of the board members specifically got carry permits so we WILL carry in church.
Holy old thread revival!!! The Texas law is better than it sounds. A "No Guns" sign or the circled gun with a line through it has no legal bearing in
TX. They have to post a whole specific paragraph that references the statute in 1" or bigger letters in English and Spanish before they can keep a CHL holder from carrying in their building. Only large corporate office buildings usually bother. Retail establishments don't want to lose customers, so only Federal property, bars that make more than 51% of income from alcohol sales, professional sporting events, courthouses, police stations, most hospitals, and inside school buildings are gun free. Texas allows us to carry on sidewalks and parking lots of schools.

The Federal law says no guns within 1000 ft of school property, but offers an exemption for anybody licensed by the state to carry a gun. (CHL holders)
