It is considered a prohibited weapon; the same as brass knuckles, swords, clubs and switch blade knives.
I really don't understand why Texas even has ANY state laws concerning weapons of any sort. We let the Feds dictate gun laws and then we pass a bunch of dumb laws dealing with everything else. Connecticut of all places has only 1 law concerning weapons and it only addresses possession of illegal full auto guns.
No, it's considered a club:
(1)"Club" means an instrument that is specially
designed, made, or adapted for the purpose of inflicting serious
bodily injury or death by striking a person with the instrument, and
includes but is not limited to the following:
Sec.A46.05.AAPROHIBITED WEAPONS.A (a)A person commits an
offense if he intentionally or knowingly possesses, manufactures,
transports, repairs, or sells:
(1)an explosive weapon;
(2)a machine gun;
(3)a short-barrel firearm;
(4)a firearm silencer;
(5)a switchblade knife;
(8)a chemical dispensing device; or
(9)a zip gun.
