I've spoken about this topic at length here in the past, so I won't add much. I just wanted to point out that our streets are still running with blood and not a single Floridian has been to work since this summer when the bill was passed.
We had three parking lot bills introduced during the last legislative session, two of them were not worth the paper they were written on. It will be interesting to see what they come up with this time.
I wouild have commented earlier, but I guess I'm not human. I didn't know the answer to the secret question.
It took Florida a few tried to pass it as well. Our new law is similarly worthless, and the first court ruling on it makes it even more silly. The way I see it, either the inside of your vehicle is an extension of your home/person and therefore sacrosanct, or it falls under the jurisdiction of whatever property it resides on. I see these laws as a case of "just doing something" for the sake of doing something. It is the same reason anti-gun legislators like to pass pointless anti-gun laws. I don't know the specifics of the Texas bill, but I assume it generally uses the same mold as FL, GA, etc.
The other problem I have with these laws is that there haven't been many cases of someone being fired for quietly keeping a firearm locked in their car. I am of the firm belief that my car and my person are private, and their geographic location does not change that. When I drive my car onto property where there is a public right of access, my privacy should not be violated. On the other hand, if a company wishes to provide a private, guarded parking area, and you willfully sign an agreement to allow the company to search your car, then that's fine. At that point it is contract law.
Regarding my captcha... it does a good job keeping the riff raff out. The answer is always 13 regardless of how silly or difficult the question is.
