Texas – -(AmmoLand.com)- Knife Rights supported HB 446, repealing the ban on the carry of clubs (including tomahawks) and possession of knuckles (including trench knives and the like) has been signed by Texas Governor Abbot. The new law becomes effective on September 1, 2019.
- In 2013 Knife Rights' repeal of Texas' switchblade ban was enacted.
- In 2015 Knife Rights' signature Knife Law Preemption was enacted, nullifying all local knife ordinances more restrictive than Texas state law, including two of the “10 Worst Anti-Knife Cities in America” at the time, San Antonio and Corpus Christi.
- In 2017 our bill removed all of the “illegal knives” in Texas law, finally allowing Texans the right to carry a Bowie knife, dagger and others in public.
NOTE: A Trench Knife with a blade over 5.5-inches will be considered a Location Restricted Knife and is banned from carry at some specific locations.
