Under Texas Code 46.02 It is illegal to carry without a permit unless
as stated below in the Texas Code


(a) A person commits an offense if the person intentionally, knowingly, or recklessly carries on or about his or her person a handgun, illegal knife, or club if the person is not:

(1) on the person's own premises or premises under the person's control; or

(2) inside of or directly en route to a motor vehicle or watercraft that is owned by the person or under the person's control.

That means that a business person may have a gun on the premises and they may transport it in a vehicle without a permit

However, when such transport is in progress, the gun and ammunition must be separate and apart stored separately in lock boxes and in the truck of the vehicle.

Does the locked and separate in car requirement also apply when traveling?
