Unless I am mistaken, and if I am someone please show me how I am... day cares are not schools, and therefore do not fall under the school gun free zone rules in TX
A childcare center is a school according to the state.
They do not require a 30.06, but they do politely post a reminder that its a felony.
Texas Penal Code 46.03 just says "on the physical premises of a school or educational institution"
Texas Penal Code 46.11(c)(2) "School" means a private or public elementary school or secondary school.
Texas Education Code Title 2 Subtitle A Chapter 5
(6-a) "Private school" means a school that:
(A) offers a course of instruction for students in one or more grades from prekindergarten through grade 12; and
(B) is not operated by a governmental agency.
Most childcare centers are a "Private school" that cover Pre-K curricula... And in my wife's case, absolutely Pre-K.
Not all cover Pre-K, so I think that is the only critical difference.
