    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.

    "Texan's should not be considered criminals for the mere possession of a object they are legally allowed to buy and own, and that we should only be a criminal with a criminal act to which we already have laws on the books to support".

    Hmmph ...

    How hard is that to recognize that it's the employment of the device in a criminal act that is the lawless bit and not the inanimate device itself? Could apply to all sorts of prohibited items that American citizens ought to have the right to own and use.

    That is a very old section of the Penal Code that makes knuckles and clubs illegal. Another holdover from our violent past, although this is, as best I remember it, a holdover from the Prohibition era when basically everything was illegal.

    It is truly amazing that the legislation to change the law was introduced by a Democrat from El Paso.

    Interesting.

    I have a set of lead knucks that my father used to carry when he was young, and I'm talking grade school or junior high young. Of course, the boys he ran around with also had a penchant for carrying inexpensive .32 and .38 revolvers. Iver Johnson, Hopkins & Allen, Harrington & Richards, etc.

    I carried a set of aluminum knucks in LA when I was a lad...it'd have to have been life or death before I hit someone with them...brutal. I also carried a traditional snot-green-handled switchblade, and, sometimes, a Beretta .25 w/tip-up barrel...before I went into the Corps. I must have been trying to turn my life around, I don't remember.

    Now maybe I can finally start carrying an ASP.
    Thinking about designing a walking can that can be deployed into a staff. Same concept.

    Texas is working on this but won’t take constitutional carry seriously. We have our priorities completely screwed up.

    Who cares about knuckles and clubs.

    Texas wants constitutional carry. There are a couple of speed bumps. . A lawsuit was filed against one of those speedbumps yesterday.
