Safe Firearm Storage Resources Information for School Districts and Open-Enrollment Charter Schools to Assist with New Legislative Requirements

House Bill 3, Section 19 (88th Texas Legislature) adds Section 37.222 to the Texas Education Code, which requires the Texas School Safety Center, in collaboration with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), to provide to each school district and open-enrollment charter school information and other resources regarding the safe storage of firearms, including information on section 46.13 of the Texas Penal Code, for distribution by the district or school.

The Texas DPS has created a public relations campaign – Keep ’Em Safe Texas – that offers free downloadable resources to promote safe gun storage.

Below you will find links to resources in English and Spanish to assist districts with meeting this legislative mandate.
