Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- Knife Rights requested bill HB2033 that would enact Knife Law Preemption and repeal the Kansas ban on Switchblades, Dirks, Daggers and Stilettos has cleared a major hurdle in the Kansas Senate.

Yesterday our lobbyist, Todd Rathner, testified before the Senate Federal and State Affairs Committee and after the testimony was heard the committee took the somewhat unusual move of “working” the bill immediately. HB2033 passed the committee unanimously and now moves to the floor of the Kansas Senate for a final vote, possibly as soon as Monday. HB2033 has already passed the Kansas House.

If you live, work or travel in Kansas, please write or call your Senator ask them to vote in favor of HB2033. Kansas does not provide an easy way to find your legislator, if you don’t know already, but click here for a link to a map of the Senate districts, which can then be used to locate your Senator: Click here for their phone number and email (listed by name and district).

Whether writing or calling, all that is necessary is to simply ask them to vote in favor of HB2033. Keep it short and to the point.

Knife Rights would like to thank Patricia Stoneking from the KSRA for her testimony. We would also like to thank Rep. Jim Howell for his clear and impassioned testimony in favor of HB2033. He and Sponsor Rep. Richard Carlson have been instrumental in moving this bill along so effectively.

Preemption ensures citizens can expect consistent enforcement of state knife laws everywhere in a state. Preemption prevents the creation of, or eliminates, a patchwork of local ordinances and laws more restrictive than state law which serve to confuse or entrap those traveling within or through the state. Knife Rights has passed similar Knife Preemption Laws in Arizona, Utah, New Hampshire and Georgia and repealed irrational knife bans in New Hampshire, Washington and Missouri.
