Indiana Passes Knife Rights Switchblade Ban Repeal

Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- After two years of effort by Knife Rights and our sponsors, the Indiana legislature has repealed the state’s irrational ban on switchblade knives.

Senator Jim Tomes and Senator Johnny Nugent have worked tirelessly with Knife Rights to pass this repeal.

Initially passed unanimously by the Indiana Senate, passage of the bill has been thwarted two years in a row by a single House committee chairman who refused to hear the bill. Senators Tomes and Nugent were able to bypass the obstinate chairman by adding the repeal language to a Conference Committee Report on HB1563 dealing with related matters. This Report was passed by the Indiana House 78-19 on Wednesday and the Indiana Senate 50-0 today.

HB1563 with the included Switchblade Ban Repeal language now goes to Governor Mike Pence. Please contact Governor Pence and ask him to sign HB1563.

 

When you call and email, keep it polite, short and to the point. Simply ask Governor Pence to please sign HB1563. That’s it!

      Wonderful! The right to carry “scary knives” once again.

    2. Funny, criminals never knew they were banned! Didn’t give a damn either. Nor should we!!!
