Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- After two years of effort, Alaska Governor Sean Parnell has signed HB33, Alaska’s Knife Rights Act, which enacts sweeping reform of Alaska’s knife laws.

HB33 legalizes the possession, transfer and carrying of automatic knives (switchblades). It also enacts knife law preemption repealing all local knife laws as well as preventing new ones from being enacted.

This law goes into effect on September 18, 2013.

With Governor Parnell’s signature, all of Knife Rights legislation passed this year has now been signed into law. Alaska becomes the 7th state to enact Knife Rights’ signature Knife Law Preemption.

At the invitation of Governor Parnell, Knife Rights Director of Legislative Affairs, Todd Rathner, attended the signing ceremony in Palmer, Alaska.

Knife Rights would like to thank Governor Parnell for recognizing and expanding the rights of everyday Alaskans as well as the millions who visit Alaska every year to hunt, fish and recreate. We would also like to thank the sponsors of the HB33, Representative Mark Neuman and Senator Fred Dyson, for sponsoring this important legislation.Knife Rights would also like to thank Pro-Tech Knives for their support in helping to pass this legislation.
