  • Can a adult charged with a felony as a juvenile own a firearm in the state of Texas?

    Sravanesh’s Answer

    Yes, so long as the probation is completed. One of the ways you are disqualified from possessing firearms is if you are a convicted felony. However, a juvenile adjudication for a felony offense is not a felony conviction. Similarly, if a juvenile charged with a felony received deferred adjudication, and the case is now dismissed and probation is completed, he should be eligible to possess a firearm. Seek the services of an attorney prior to buying a firearm, however, to ensure your particular case is good.

  • Can I be 19 an open carry a handgun in texas?

    Sravanesh’s Answer

    No. In order to "open carry" in Texas, you must first obtain a Licence to Carry a Handgun ("LTC"). One of their requirements for eligibility of the LTC is for the person to be at least 21 years old.
