In a huge 2nd Amendment victory, LSGR was successfully able to get our bill to pass the Senate with just 2 hours to spare. Once signed, there will be no such thing as an "illegal knife" in the State of Texas. Do you agree with this bill?
It's fantastic, Derek! But let's warn Texans not to strap on their Bowie knives until it takes effect on September 1, 2017!
Great job, LSGR leadership and fellow members! Press on for Constitutional Carry!
We are planning a BYOB event at the Alamo September 1.... Bring Your Own Bowie!! Finally the Bowie knife will be legal in Texas!
Celebrate by getting a pike and dressing up like a Roman and go around cornering Christians.
R switchblades legal?
They got legalized last session. Now Bowie knives, swords, spears, and any knife over 5.5" is legal.
As of 9/1/17.
It is comforting to know that in Texas if someone disagrees with you saber can be drawn to settle the argument.
Really? Is this how pathetic Liberals have gotten in their arguments? Anyone who has any experience with sabers knows this is one of the stupidest reasons to be opposed to this law.
Sabers or long swords in general.
This is Texas. Why would draw a sword when there's 10 to 1 odds the guy who offends you has a .38?
Well... I didn't know there was illegal knives... I thought they did away with that years ago.
Yes, I agree. What the hell is an "illegal knife"? A Sword? Am I going to have to start passing background checks at the Renaissance Fair when I buy a replica sword? Absolutely ridiculous that this even had to be put in a bill.
Good work for you Derek. It seems like a lot of people on SOH bitch about their area and government, while you seem like one of the few people who I see regularly on here actually talking about the actions they're taking rather than just complaining.
Thanks Troop! If people only knew how bad it is, they'd do a lot more than just bitch..... because it's baaaaad.
Derek works hard for 2A and other rights! 👍🌟🏆🎉😎
Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't there certain laws under the Geneva Convention that create "illegal knives" and or other similar weapons, such as swords. Or is that just for chemical weapons?
That's just chemical weapons to my knowledge...
I think I probably heard this first on Pawn stars which is where I was sent after looking on different forums about three sided knives.
"The Geneva Conventions banned three-sided blades in warfare because the wounds they cause encourage infection and are difficult to sew close."
But others on the forums said it could be in The Hague Convention instead of the Geneva Convention even though I didn't find much about The Hague. But more broadly I guess the Geneva Convention could cover the legality under weapons meant to cause unnecessary pain.
Of course. The concept of an "illegal knife" is just flat out unintelligent.
Can you move to Maryland? We need serious help here.
Texas still needs help, but we won't stop until all 50 States have Constitutional Carry... including knife rights.
