Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- Building on Knife Rights’ unprecedented 2013 legislative success with 5 more pro-knife bills passed, we are getting a jump on 2014 by filing two bills already in Florida and Tennessee.

And, we’ve just only gotten started!

Knife Rights is Getting It Done! and with your support we hope to make 2014 the Year of the Knife. Support Knife Rights today for a Sharper Future tomorrow.

Florida Knife Law Preemption Bill Filed
Florida State Senator Thad Altman has reintroduced Knife Rights’ knife law preemption bill for the 2014 session. SB458 will prevent local municipalities in Florida from passing laws governing knives more restrictive than state law and will repeal any existing local knife laws more restrictive than state law currently on the books. SB458 includes onerous penalties for jurisdictions that try to ignore this knife preemption law, making it much easier for Knife Rights or citizens to take such a jurisdiction to court. If passed, this will bring Florida in line with the seven other states that have already passed and implemented Knife Rights’ knife law preemption.

If you live, work or travel in Florida, please contact your state Senator and ask them to please co-sponsor this bill. If Sen. Altman is your Senator, please thank him for sponsoring SB458.

Tennessee Bill to Repeal Knife Restrictions Filed
Tennessee State Senator Mike Bell has introduced a bill to finish the job of updating the state’s knife laws. Last year Knife Rights and Senator Bell passed knife law preemption, but the effort to repeal the antiquated ban on switchblade knives and possession of knives over four inches in length failed in the House due to opposition from the Tennessee Sheriff’s Association (TSA).

Knife Rights has worked very closely with the TSA Executive Director Terry Ashe to address their concerns and SB1438 is the result. We sincerely appreciate Sheriff Ashe’s cooperation in coming up with a solution for the TSA’s concerns while removing restrictions on law-abiding citizens.

If you live, work or travel in Tennessee, please contact your state Senator and ask them to please support SB1438.
