TX: Brass knuckles and other self-defense item to be legal in Texas
Submitted by:">Mark A. Taff

Had one north Texas woman not gotten into a fender bender last year, police might have never arrested her for carrying a cat-shaped self-defense keychain in her purse, and the law banning those same weapons might have gone unnoticed.

I applaud this action (automatic knives should also be included), but this statement reveals the mindset of misguided priorities:

“If someone has a novelty item or a legitimate self-defense tool, we really shouldn’t be prosecuting them for that,” Moody said. “That’s not a good use of resources.”

The use of resources is subordinate to the central issue. Liberty and the right of self-defense is primary. Moody's characterization using the words "shouldn't be prosecuting them for that" assumes that the question should be entirely within the states' prerogatives. Upside-down thinking, for sure.


Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
