On Sept 1st some of the illegal weapons (maybe all I don't know) will no longer be illegal. That means swords, blades over 5.5" in length, double edged blades, stilettos, etc.

 

I already can carry the illegal weapons because of my gun carry permit but I have to be carrying my gun and permit to do so, Now with the new law I won't need my gun and permit.

 

Then I can go where the guns are not permitted on sites and I won't be weaponless. I'm 67 and disabled so it matters to me. Few days ago I ordered a Cold Steel Heavy Duty sword cane and received it yesterday. Decent blade and sharp.

 

I made the video to show a friend that the blade is indeed sharp out of the box.

Oh yeah. No constitutional carry yet except for the long arms. They're legal to carry w/o a permit.

This morning I saw a news item that reported Texas's huge pee crisis. Seems a few pastors and a Xian mob of 200 or more

marched on the state capitol demanding relief from the transgender plague.

QUOTE: “We are in the throes of a deliberate attempt to try to strip our nation from its Judeo-Christian heritage to the embracement of doctrines of demons: socialism, communism, Marxism, Darwinism, secular humanism,” said Pastor Stephen Broden of Dallas.

 

Two years ago the governor and Alex Jones...one of the gov's advisors...managed to ward off the USA Special Forces from taking over Walmarts and erecting

concentration camps. That was a close call!

 

I've been hearing rumors that Texas is in danger of losing its ONE STAR rating....anyone else heard about that? Could be fake news.

 

Will the law allow felons and transgenders to carry those weapons?

Abbott signed House Bill 1935 in June, allowing Texans to carry around swords, spears, bowie knives, or anything you may have seen in “Game of Thrones.”

 

Talk about returning to the Dark Ages....

Welcome back to the age of the Three Musketeers, and the age when every gentleman carried a sword. Having a sword is one thing, having the ability and knowledge of how to use it is another.

 

Strange place Texas.

 

Here, possession of an unlicensed firearm is an automatic five year sentence. Not using, not carrying it, not even having it loaded - possessing one even if it never leaves your house..

Then I can go where the guns are not permitted on sites and I won't be weaponless.

I just cant imagine living in a place where I felt the need to be armed all the time.

Neither can I.  And I live in the United States and have spent time in New York City, Boston, Washington, DC, San Francisco, Austin, TX, and Chicago.

 

I have never, ever felt the need for a weapon of any kind for self-protection.

The Wife and I are in our middle sixties and we each have concealed carry firearms license. 

 

We each carry a S&W model 36 five shot 38 special snub nose revolver and two speed loaders.

 

There are to many crazy people on the streets up to no good and you can't stay at home all the time.

 

Criminals have guns and so do I.  :thumbsup:

I love Americans but when it comes to guns you people are crazy there is something seriously wrong when people in their 60's need to carry a gun and 2 speed loaders just to feel safe, and as for this law, well I am speechless this will do nothing to improve public safety.

I understand what you're saying guys and I know we have ridiculous laws. We have freedom to the max and so do crooks so while the law fail to protect us we had to protect ourselves.

 

We're not a police state and we take our freedom seriously. This country is a melting pot for lots of races and a hot bed for certain races as well. Some do not get along, period.

 

I will not get racist and name a certain race who are our biggest PITA. Anyway, us seniors are at a risk.

What bothers me are people who want to have concealed carry permits be legal across state lines where a permit in one state is valid in another. The difference between states laws is too large for this. Some states don't require a conceal carry permit at all while others allow a conceal carry permit with no training required. Giving out concealed carry permits without a requirement to take a handgun class is nuts.
