    Brass knuckles, other self-defense items legal in Texas starting Sept. 1 - Story | KDFW

    Self-defense items, including brass knuckles and hard plastic kitty keychains, will be legal for Texans to carry starting September 1.

    House Bill 446, which overturns the ban on brass knuckles, self-defense keychains, and clubs, was signed into law by Texas Governor Greg Abbott in May. It passed unanimously in both the House and the Senate.

    It removed "knuckles" and "clubs" from a group of weapons banned by a previous law that was passed in 1918.

    Previously, it was against the law for anyone to "knowingly possess, manufacture, transport, repair, or sell" brass knuckles or a club.

    Yes in deed. But at my age I am not letting a threat get close enough to me to use brass knuckles.
    Now it is also legal to carry a sword, so the Claymore may come down off the wall hanger.
    They would have to be pretty brave or stupid to attack a guy wearing a kilt, cowboy hat and boots with a Claymore strapped to his back and a .45 on his hip.

    It has been legal to use and conceal carry (with a carry license) knuckles in FL, but the manufacture and sale of them is not allowed.

    Never been a fan of knuckles as far as self defense options go but having an expandable baton as an option now won't be a bad tool to have the shed.
