Governor signs bill allowing Texans to carry swords, spears, and more

A bill signed into law by Texas Gov. Greg Abbott will now allow adult Texans to carry around long-bladed weapons, according to KPRC-TV.


Abbott signed House Bill 1935 in June, allowing Texans to carry around swords, spears, bowie knives, or anything you may have seen in “Game of Thrones.”


Currently, the law prohibits state residents from carrying around anything larger than 5.5 inches. The law will go into effect on Sept. 1, allowing anyone 18 years of age or older to carry their weapon of choice around with them.


Despite the change, carrying weapons longer than 5.5 inches will still be prohibited in certain places. Schools, prisons, hospitals, amusement parks, churches, sporting events, and bars will remain sword-free by law.


House Bill 1935 provides a common sense solution by prohibiting any knife with a blade over 5 1/2 inches in certain location restricted areas,” Republican Rep. John Frullo, author of the bill, told CNN.

The legislation was stalled in May after a stabbing]stabbing – TheBlaze[/url] at the University of Texas campus in Austin left one dead and three injured. Frullo postponed debate for the bill until the following week, but stood by his bill, according to Spectrum News.


“It’s not making criminals out of people who have no intention of creating some type of criminal act,” Frullo said.


The bill was supported by knife rights activist group, Knife Rights, who celebrated the bill’s signing on their site.


“Now in 2017, we have removed all of the ‘illegal knives’ in Texas law, finally allowing Texans the right to carry a Bowie 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,” wrote Knife Rights.


“We won’t stop until Texas is a free as everyone thinks Texas is,” the group added.
