    Gunz are icky.
    Discussion at work today.
    One of the young guys is into all sorts of Ninja Hong Kong Fooey weapons including throwing stars.
    He says they are legal to have but not to carry. Just like a sword or switchblades used to be.
    Does anyone know for sure?
    ive seen them for sale as well throwing knives and spears and tomahawks. Heck the local Academy Sports has all these on the racks.
    The Penal Code says any hand stabbing instrument meant to be thrown is a no no.
    What say TGT?

    An illegal knife includes and hand instrument designed to cut or stab another by being thrown.

    An illegal knife is in the same sections of the law as a handgun. They fall under unlawful carry, PC 46.02. unlawful to carry on or about your person if you are not on your own premises or premises under your control, or not inside of a a motor vehicle or one under your control. The exceptions in 46.15 are also applicable.

    So basically, yes, they are legal to own. Just can't be running around acting a fool with them.

    And they will get a public school student taken to juvenile detention or jail, depending upon his or her age. Their story always started out, "....but, but, it's OK 'cause I bought it at the mall!"

    I bought one of these throwing stars (and a gameboy) in middle school in the hallway. Soooooo many things I could have been tossed out of school for.

    What's it matter? Only a real Ninja should be carrying these things anyway, and just how the Hell is a cop going to nab a Ninja? He'll just fly away or disappear into a smoke bomb thrown on the ground or something awesome like that.

    Name me ONE real life Ninja who was EVER arrested. That's right, because IT NEVER HAPPENED.

    Trust me. Hong Kong Fooey ain't no Ninja. He's 300lbs of basement dweller.
    not gonna bash on the guy because he likes that stuff.
    Figured it was similar to a sword. Legal to have and play with at home but not for carrying around acting a fool.
    So now I have to tell him he was correct. He gonna go all Ninja on me now! LMAO!

    Throwing stars are fun but I would never even consider using one for self-defense unless it was the only thing within grab distance when another ninja comes breaking into my room and surprises me. Now a saw blade... Those hit like a ton of bricks. I was goofing off in the shop one day and made a "Krull" sized shuriken out of a circular saw blade. I could lob it from across the yard accurately into a 8x16" log. Each tine of the star was about 3.5" long and it was impossible NOT to stick. Not practical at all but it was fun.
