What is the Weapons Policy?

By June 26, 2017 3 Comments

Pursuant to Section 30.06, Penal Code (trespass by license holder with a concealed handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (handgun licensing law), may not enter the Texas Renaissance Festival property with a concealed handgun.

Pursuant to Section 30.07, Penal Code (trespass by license holder with an openly carried handgun), a person licensed under Subchapter H, Chapter 411, Government Code (handgun licensing law), may not enter Texas Renaissance Festival property with a handgun that is openly carried.

 

Any swords, rapiers, edged or pointed, etc. that are worn as a part of your costume MUST BE SHEATHED AND PEACE TIED. You can secure them with leather straps or zip ties. No unsecured weapons will be allowed into the Festival site.

    My manager just told me there were open carry at the faire this weekend. I am upset at this because it puts us all at risk. Who do we notify if we see this.

      Despite the policy, there are a few licensed professionals (police officers, etc.) who are allowed to carry. (FYI – on airplanes they are called air marshalls.) I would address your concerns to a faire security guard (probably by the entrance), and the security guard can check out that individual (if he or she didn’t already notify the security guards of their presence).

      A person with a license to carry does not put anyone at risk. Sad that people have a misconception about this. What concerns me about their policy is just anyone with a sword can walk right in. Secured with leather straps, really!?
