The guy teaching it was ex-marine, 30+ year law enforcement officer, both federal and state, and we spent twenty minutes going over federal laws.
I've seen a lot of instructors who make their own interpretations of situations into fact (not saying for sure that's what is happening in this case). Fortunately, of all the examples I have seen, the instructors erred on the side of caution and restriction.
I have a long unanswered question from some students that seems to have taken on something close to "urban legend" status. Some people apparently believe it is not legal to carry a firearm in a commercial truck, but I have never seen any law, Federal or State of Texas, that verifies that "myth". It's easy to verify something is illegal when it is spelled out in the law but it is very difficult to verify something is permissible when you are trying to overcome objections by someone who is strong-willed.
