17. There may be a small shade of truth to this

This has been years ago, but i am about 90% certain that there was some sort of "grey area" when it came to black powder weapons in the State of Texas. There was some sort of dumb logic that since the firearm was so old, it wasn't considered a real weapon and therefore not subject to the laws that a standard firearm would be. I will have to do some research on this.

Black powder guns can kill just as well as a conventional gun can. Even if it was legal to openly carry a black powder firearm, the Alamo is State property. If they say no weapons, they mean it.

This open carry bullshit is nothing more than crude intimidation and false bravado
