State Offers Firearm Storage Compliance Resources

News Update

Risk Alert

Texas media outlets recently reported multiple instances of school-based law enforcement personnel leaving firearms unattended in restrooms and classrooms. These incidents underscore the importance of properly securing and storing firearms.

Compliance Resources

Texas Penal Code section 46.13 creates an offense if a child gains access to a readily dischargeable firearm and the person with criminal negligence failed to secure the firearm; or left the firearm in a place to which the person knew or should have known the child would gain access.

Districts must provide this information to the parent or guardian of each student enrolled in the district or school. The Texas School Safety Center (TxSSC) recommends providing this information at least once annually.

The TxSSC offers a parent cover letter (English, Spanish) that districts can customize as well as downloadable resources promoting gun safety.
