Texas Government Code

Sec. § 411.206
Seizure of Handgun and License


If a peace officer arrests and takes into custody a license holder who is carrying a handgun under the authority of this subchapter, the officer shall seize the license holder’s handgun and license as evidence.


The provisions of Article 18.19 (Disposition of Seized Weapons), Code of Criminal Procedure, relating to the disposition of weapons seized in connection with criminal offenses, apply to a handgun seized under this subsection.


Any judgment of conviction entered by any court for an offense under Section 46.035 (Unlawful Carrying of Handgun by License Holder), Penal Code, must contain the handgun license number of the convicted license holder. A certified copy of the judgment is conclusive and sufficient evidence to justify revocation of a license under Section 411.186 (Revocation)(a)(4).
