Congratulations, Free Texans! HB1935 is on its way to Governor Abbott’s desk. Facing practically no opposition this session, the bill is certain to become law.

This bill modernizes and clarifies knife laws in Texas, removing the terms “sword,” “spear,” “dirk,” “stiletto,” “poniard,” and “bowie knife” from the penal code. It also repeals the ban on carrying knives with blades over 5.5″ in length and double-edged blades. It will still be illegal to carry long-blade knives in certain areas, most notably in bars.
