What kind of charges I'm facing if I went to a private place and the officer searched me and found a handgun on me?

Asked 10 months ago - Austin, TX

The place did not sell alcohol beverages and did NOT had a sign prohibiting of weapons . Is this a trespass with a firearm? I never got asked to leave and were not given any opportunity to do so. He searched me as soon as I arrived at that establishment for just looking at him or whatever.

Additional information

Obviously, all answers here are from other planet. Texas has 18 as minimum age for handgun possession, my question is what I can do for false arrests?
