Texas and CHL: "Your 2nd Amendment is showing!"

Gun Safety should be taken by everyone, not just those with concealed carry permits.
Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_safety

If you don't have the first rule memorized, you don't need to handle or own a gun.
Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Cooper

Don't arm someone with a deadly weapon if you aren't 100% sure they know gun safety.

Know your legal risks and plan accordingly.
Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_laws_in_the_United_States_(by_state)#Texas
Ref: http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/administration/crime_records/chl/relatedlaws.htm

Don't carry somewhere that asks you not to, just because their sign is misspelled.

Don't display your weapon unless you're about to use it.

Don't use your weapon unless it's absolutely necessary.

Be prepared to be stopped, with lethal force, if there's a misunderstanding:
Ref: http://www.lvrj.com/news/slaying-of-army-veteran-shocks-friends-98223884.html

Be aware of hazardous attitudes. It comes from aviation, but it applies anywhere safety is involved. Guns are no place for macho or invulnerability attitudes to be unchecked.

NOTE: All of this is my personal opinion. Definitely consult a lawyer, TX state attorney, or at least a licensed instructor for more accurate representations of the law. Don't make any choices based on my opinions.
