Thread: Resident "Alien" CHL

  1. Your Utah permit works here

    You say you have a Utah permit? They are honored in TX, you can carry.

    As a green card holder myself I recall I had to wait about 6 months before I could even apply for the Texas CHL.

    Once you have the CHL, it certainly does make purchasing firearms easier, though, as a side note... being a green card holder, you would still have to produce your last 3 utility bills to purchase a firearm. Utility bills means either water or electricity bills in YOUR name and showing YOUR CURRENT address. I don't know why they have this stupid requirement but it's part and parcel of making a purchase.

    I don't know much about your particular visa but if you don't have a green card then you can't get the CHL in Texas.

    BTW, I'm originally from the UK where even carrying a 1" pocket knife will land you 5 years in jail.
    this is complete not true!
    Immigration status never is the requirement for CHL!

    And your source for that is what exactly? It took me a few seconds on Google to find this. From CHL FAQs : Texas Concealed Handgun License:

    15. If I am a legal resident alien, can I get a license?

    Under federal law, aliens who have been admitted to the U.S. under a non-immigrant visa, usually are not qualified to purchase a handgun and therefore, do not qualify for a license. However, as long as you were not admitted under a non-immigrant visa and are a legal resident of Texas, you may qualify.
