A friend of mine who has a chl was pulled over then questioned about his laser sight they said the only reason he didnt get in trouble over it was because the gun came from the factory that way.?

Who is "they"? What kind of "trouble" could he have been in? A time out?:p

There is no law in Texas regarding laser sights.

Why did the laser get seen in the first place?

Not getting complete story here.

It's a class-C to point a laser at a security guard of Peace Officer. If the gun is attached to it, then it's deadly conduct.

my guess is he told the cop he had a gun in the car like he was told to do if he gets pulled over that is the only real bit of the story i was told. I was just curious because he told me that and that sounded strange to me. Since i have seen laser sights at wal mart and i assume that an illiegal item wouldnt be sold at wal mart
