    Also other changes in the law.

    notice changes to the definition of when an offense is committed.
    PC §46.02. UNLAWFUL CARRYING WEAPONS. pg 42 of pdf file
    "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 that is owned
    by the person or under the person's control."

    Now, effectively, your car is your home, as far as what you can have to protect yourself. No CHL needed to carry a pistol in your car.

    I like how the wording of it also allows your tire tool (club), your machete of filet knife (illegal knife), etc., in your car with you.

    In addition, the Castle Doctrine also protects a CHL holder who uses deadly force, as stated in the law, from civil liability by the person(s) against whom the deadly force was used as well as by the families of the person(s) against whom the deadly force was used.
