51% (Texas Penal Code 46.15)

In the Lone Star State, the 51% sign serves as a crucial indicator for gun owners, particularly those carrying firearms in public spaces. By displaying the 51% sign, establishments inform visitors that over half of their revenue is generated from alcohol sales. As a result, Texas law stipulates that carrying firearms in such venues is prohibited. This restriction not only affects License to Carry (LTC) holders, but also those exercising permitless carry rights under the Firearm Carry Act of 2021. Familiarizing oneself with the implications of the 51% sign can help responsible gun owners avoid potential legal complications.

In contrast, permitless carry individuals can openly carry firearms in these venues. Acknowledging the differences between the 30.06 and 30.07 signs is key for Texas gun owners, ensuring they respect the specific firearms restrictions imposed by each establishment.
