    I will be driving to Houston next week from New Orleans. I will be carrying two firearms and one will be in my bags. Any different laws? Does the one in my luggage have to be locked? Thanks

    Jensen,

    Louisianan gun laws are more strict than Texas. If you have a Louisiana CCW then you are good in Texas. If not, keep it concealed in the car (it's legal.)

    But yes, check out http://www.handgunlaw.us/

    If you are a Louisiana CCW, I believe Texas reciprocates. However you have to follow Texas laws.

    And that is why you need to check out http://www.handgunlaw.us/


    ETA: My wife and I travel by car quite a bit, and I use this site to plan my route and familiarize myself with the laws of each state I plan to travel to/through. (I hate it because I have to add 3-4 hours of travel time to circumvent Illinois.)
