En garde! Texas open carry sword law takes effect Friday

September 2, 2017

OpenCarrySword_TexasLawSAN ANGELO, Texas — The phrase “everything’s bigger in Texas” is about to become even more clear-cut.

On Friday, Texans will legally be allowed to carry blades longer than 5.5 inches in most — but not all — places.

This includes openly carrying the famous Jim Bowie knife, as well as daggers, dirks, throwing knives, stilettos, poniards, swords, machetes and spears.

The new law was introduced by Republican state Rep. John Frullo this year but met resistance after a student was killed and three others were wounded at the University of Texas by a suspect wielding a hunting knife.

    Fight fire with fire and carry a big stick or sword, gun you name it. Whack the bastards with whatever you can. Let these Terrorists suffer some of their own medicine, see an Allah Akbar screamer stab him. Cut him down to size.

    It is NOT the knife or the gun! It is the IDIOT behind the knife/gun.

      Amen, Pete. Since we can’t effectively outlaw stupidity we must allow members of the public to carry whatever device they need to neutralize the stupid idiot who has no respect for human life and no regard for the law. Way to go, Texas!
