Texas votes to lift ban on brass knuckles, kitty keychains and clubs
Texas lawmakers have passed legislation lifting the state ban on brass knuckles, kitty keychains and other self defense items.

The Texas Senate gave the bill its final OK on Wednesday morning; it now heads to Gov. Greg Abbott for his signature or veto. Abbott's staff did not immediately return a request for comment Wednesday. Bill author Rep. Joe Moody, D-El Paso, said the bill was "another step" toward getting rid of" antiquated laws regarding weapons."

All of these are potential life savers when you are being attacked by illegal aliens. All are also open to abuse by criminals. It is the illegal use, not the item, that should be a crime.

So now you can carry brass knuckles, but if you actually HIT someone with them it's assault with a deadly weapon.

In the US of A, there are approximately 1,100 individual rights and many more additional privileges and immunities; however, unless you are able to articulate them, you cannot claim them. Sadly, not very many people care to learn what their rights are.
“If you'll let me tell you what I imagine about myself, you'll find it a lot more interesting” –Anne Shirley


You know, under the terms of contract called the old covenant, it was negotiated by Moses out of Mt. Sinai, you and I are entitled to 33 articulable benefits; benefits such as rain in due season, multiplied gold, silver, herds, flocks and great wealth.

Well, George Bush said, "that what Americans wanted was jobs, jobs, jobs" but you know but that's not what George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, Moses or "God" had in mind when they wrote our Constitution, our Bill of Rights and the Ten Commandments. All of these authorities recognize that real wealth is measured in land, cattle, property, gold, silver, wheat, corn, beans, honey and oil. It is not measured in jobs, jobs, jobs, it's measured in property. There's no money in employment. The money is in private business. The money is in sales. The money is in property. There is no money in public business and there's no money in jobs, jobs, jobs and that's why I contend it's time you cashed in on your inheritance and learned how to collect those benefits from the old covenant contract and to collect your benefits in property like gold, silver, wheat, corn, beans, honey and oil instead of credit, debt, usury, inflation and worthless paper.

Until constitutional carry is passed, you still need permission from the government to carry a handgun. Not everyone CAN get a license, not everyone wants big brother knowing what they have.

Another issue: get pulled over, cop finds out you have CCL.... you could very well get shot for sneezing or reaching for your wallet/registration papers.

Keeping fresh powder in a cap & ball revolver becomes a hassle and cost-prohibitive.

While legal to do so... walking around with a rifle slung over your shoulder will draw extensive police harassment.

Now they will say get rid of all guns because you have brass knuckles, kitty keychains and clubs.

This could be a setup.
