"Unless possession of a firearm or firearm ammunition on a landlord's property is prohibited by state or federal law, a landlord may not prohibit a tenant or a tenant's guest from lawfully possessing, carrying, transporting, or storing a firearm, any part of a firearm, or firearm ammunition:
(1) in the tenant's rental unit;
(2) in a vehicle located in a parking area provided for tenants or guests by the landlord of the leased premises; or
(3) in other locations controlled by the landlord as
(A) enter or exit the tenant's rental unit;
(B) enter or exit the leased premises; or
(C) enter or exit a vehicle on the leased premises or located in a parking area provided by the landlord for tenants or guests."
Legislative Update: Residential landlords can no longer prohibit possession of firearms and ammunition.
Section 92.026. of the Texas Property Code provides that effective September 1st 2019,
Landlords will still be able to prohibit firearms in common areas that residents and guests do not need to go through to enter or exit the resident's unit.
