Open Carry

Open Carry Texas


The new Open Carry gun law goes into effect Jan. 1, 2016. The Open Carry law will allow a license holder to "open carry" a holstered handgun or firearm, though gun laws are complex. The McKinney Police Department encourages residents to determine whether gun laws allow a person to openly carry a firearm at a particular location under the new law. To learn more about Open Carry, visit the Texas Department of Public Safety website.
