Criminal Street Gang Membership & LTC Eligibility
Texas law prohibits gang members from carrying handguns under certain circumstances, such as in a vehicle. It does not prohibit them from possessing a handgun or carrying it in other circumstances, such as in their residence. Consequently, a few gang members may be fully qualified under applicable state and federal law to purchase a handgun. Assuming these members can meet all the requirements of the LTC statute, DPS may not deny them a license solely based on their status as a gang member. DPS has no discretion to deny a license to an applicant who meets all eligibility requirements.
