    Brass knuckles will soon be legal to carry in Texas

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) signed a bill into law over the weekend that lifts the ban on carrying brass knuckles and other self-defense items in public.

    Democratic state Rep. Joe Moody, who co-authored House Bill 446, described its passage as "another step toward getting rid of antiquated laws regarding weapons," according to KHOU-TV. Last month, the Texas House of Representatives approved the bill in a vote of 147-0, with one representative abstaining and two others absent. The state Senate passed the bill 31-0, two weeks ago.

    Other items including clubs and wild kat keychains, sometimes known as kitty keychains, will also be legal to carry when the law takes effect on Sept. 1.

    That's nice, I'm surprised the Speaker of the Texas House didn't kill it like he killed all the other weapons freedom bills.

    Had to do an image search to see what the wild kat keychain was all about. Looks like I've got some stocking stuffers for Christmas figured out now.

    Also, have you contacted your Congressional Rep and asked them co-sponsor Ron Paul's Rep. Paul Broun Jr.'s HR 1098 77: Free Competition in Currencies Act?

    "Paul said "the wave of the future" is a coalition of anti-authoritarian progressive Democrats and libertarian Republicans in Congress opposed to domestic surveillance, opposed to starting new wars and in favor of ending the so-called War on Drugs."
