    A bipartisan bill sponsored by a Democratic state representative has been approved to allow brass knuckles to be carried for self defense. 9/1 is the effective date for new laws in the state.

    I have just started researching brass knuckles to add to my collection. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Why, in a state that makes it fairly easy to obtain a license to conceal carry a firearm, and a state where many of the people DO carry a gun would you want to carry a less effective weapon known as a thugs/punks weapon?

    Conceal carry is location restricted with brass knuckles and knifes having fewer location restrictions with no permit. The law was changed to remove ambiguity since a knife with a shroud handle could be considered brass knuckles and illegal under the previous law.

    PVK in Vegas sell the Microtech ones which are amazing! Miller Industries make single and double knucks which are great quality too.

    In some jurisdictions, a CCW doesn't limit-you to carrying just a handgun. Brass knuckles, saps, and knives are also included as approved legal carry.

    In Texas knifes and knuckles are covered under separate state wide laws. Municipalities are not allowed to have a stricter ordinance which Corpus Christi and San Antonio had enacted. Only concealed carry of a firearm requires a license.
