According to Texas law, swords and batons are more dangerous than guns.

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.

So, is the punishment the same for carrying (6) Knuckles, as it is for carrying (3) a short-barrel firearm?

The state of Texas makes no exemption for legally owned short barreled firearms and machine guns?

It's a defense to prosecution that the actors possession was pursuant to
registration pursuant to the National Firearms Act, as amended.
