Old news, happened a year ago.
Came here to say this. The only reason I don't carry one is because I don't have a practical one, only a few show pieces.
It passed a year ago, went into effect Sept 1st.
How was it not legal before? Don't you people have a right to keep and arm bears?
We have a right to bear arms.....through genetic mutation and costume design.
It was a hold over from the Civil War, much of the previous Confederacy had bans put in place to prevent the carry of arms in public by former soldiers, and certain classes of arms banned out right.
This was done ostensibly to make it more difficult for the incensed southern man to attack the recently freed slaves and other minority groups that would be taking larger participation in their communities following the war.
There was a 5.5" blade size limit for carrying a knife in public. Now there is no size limit (except in certain places, i.e.-bars, churches, schools).
What I don't understand is how such a law did not violate your second amendment rights.
Yeah, it was kinda weird to have some of the most lax gun laws in the country and meanwhile have some of the strictest knife laws. Even California had looser knife laws than TX before this law.
I mean, you can open carry a machine gun(If you got a stamp and have a lot of money), so this is just so people can carry swords for ?
It’s about time Texas. It’s about time.
