Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- Knife Rights Director of Legislative Affairs Todd Rathner earlier this week testified before the Alaska Senate Committee on State Affairs in support of Senate Bill SB11 which would repeal the antiquated ban on switchblade knives in Alaska and would enact knife law preemption. SB11 was passed out of the committee and now moves to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

You may remember that Todd also testified earlier in support of House Bill HB33 which would clarify the definition of a switchblade knife so as to clearly not include spring-assisted knives and would also enact knife law preemption. HB33 was passed by the House this week and has been sent over to the Senate, where it will also be heard by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Knife Rights supports both bills. In the end, typically, they will be combined in conference and the final version may go in either direction, either full repeal of the ban on switchblades or the clarification of the definition of a switchblade. We would like to thank Rep Mark Neuman and Senator Fred Dyson for sponsoring these important bills.
