Sept 1 guns aren't the only thing that will be legal in the state of Texas. Switchblades too

Resource: http://news.yahoo.com/ccrkba-lauds-gov-perrys-repeal-onerous-knife-restrictions-212400534.html?.tsrc=yfpnewsapp
Quoted from the article: "While other knife restrictions in Texas remain in effect," noted CCRKBA Chairman Alan Gottlieb, "this looks like a good first step toward more rational laws regulating knives, which must be protected under the Second Amendment, same as firearms. The right to keep and bear arms is not limited simply to guns."

The legislation was passed 141-1 by the House of Representatives, and 31-0 by the State Senate last month. Now that Gov. Perry has signed the measure, it takes effect on Sept. 1.

Texas is not the only state to repeal a knife ban:

Indiana's upcoming end to its decades-old ban on switchblades has spurred some of the state's gun stores to start taking pre-orders for the spring-loaded knives.

State lawmakers passed a bill earlier this year legalizing the sale and possession of the automatic knives beginning July 1. The state's ban had been in place for 30 years.
