    There still seems to be plenty of confusion over the new knife law in Texas. Effective on Sept. 1st, the new law eliminates from Texas statute the prohibition against carrying "illegal knives," including daggers, dirks, stilettos, poniards, swords, spears and most notably, Bowie knives. This allows adults to carry these knives throughout the state with the exception that knives with blades over 5.5 inches are now restricted from carry in a limited number of locations. For full details on the new Texas law and a complete list of the limited places where you cannot carry "location restricted" knives with blades over 5.5 inches please see: https://kniferights.org/knife-rights-texas-hb-1935-bottom-line/

    In 2013 Knife Rights' repeal of Texas' switchblade ban was enacted. In 2015 we got Knife Law Preemption enacted, removing all local knife ordinances more restrictive than Texas state law. Now in 2017 we have removed all of the "illegal knives" in Texas law, finally allowing Texans the right to carry a Bowie knife, dagger and virtually any other knife. But, we are not yet finished. We will be back in two years to see about striking those last remaining minor knife restrictions in Texas. We won't stop until Texas is a free as everyone thinks Texas is.
