Delaware has added New Mexico to the list of states it honors. You can see that listing at
http://attorneygeneral.delaware.gov/criminal/concealedweapons.shtml  That brings to 19 the number of states Delaware honors and 33 states that Honor the New Mexico License.

On 1/1/16 Texas will be an Open Carry state for handguns. You have to have a license issued by Texas or a Permit/License from a state they honor to opening carry a handgun. In Texas you could always open carry a long gun slug on your shoulder but not handguns. In Texas the openly carried handgun must either be in a shoulder or belt holster. Those two types of carry are spelled out in the law. It has to be in a belt or shoulder holster. The holster does not have to be a security type holster.   

Campus concealed carry in Texas does not go into effect until Aug. 1, 2016. State Colleges/Universities can limit where on campus you can carry. Every school can make their own policies on what areas are off limits. There will be a lot of contention over what areas are off limits and it will take time for the schools/courts etc to get this all ironed out. Private Colleges/Universities can opt out of the law banning all carry on their campus. Many private schools have announced they will ban carry. Open carry is not allowed anywhere on a College/University Campus. Where Concealed Carry is forbidden it must be posted with the 30.06 sign. As you can see by the law change shown below Open Carry is forbidden anywhere on a college/university campus at all times and no signage is needed to show they are off limits to open carry.
                                                                                                                                                                                     Penal Code 46.035 states it is a violation to openly carry:
(1) on the premises of an institution of higher education or private or independent institution of higher education; or
(2) on any public or private driveway, street, sidewalk or walkway, parking lot, parking garage, or other parking area of an institution of higher education or private or independent institution of higher education.
The TX St Rifle Assoc. has FAQs on the new open carry law here:
https://www.tsra.com/open-carry-faq/

Beginning 1/1/16 all K-12 and colleges/universities will be off limits in California. Penal Code 626.9 was amended to make these locations off  limits. California being California writes their laws with a lot of legalize. Referencing many other laws in the text. Before taking an unloaded secured handgun and even ammunition in a locked box in your trunk onto any school property I would check with the CalGuns Foundation. https://www.calgunsfoundation.org/
They are the gold standard for info on California gun laws and how they apply.

The Delaware/New Mexico changes have been added to www.handgunlaw.us  The changes in California and Texas will be added to their respective pages on January 1, 2016

A poster point out something I left out. Community Colleges and Junior Colleges in Texas. Those institutions are still Gun Free Zones until August 1, 2017.
