Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- July 1st 2014 is Knife Freedom Day in Tennessee.

Knife Rights’ repeal of the ban on automatic (switchblade) knives and the carry of knives over four inches in length “with intent to go armed,” a vague law subject to abusive interpretation, goes into effect today.

Combined with Knife Law Preemption that Knife Rights passed in Tennessee last year, which rendered null and void all local laws more restrictive than state law, this means that all law-abiding citizens of the Volunteer State can now own and carry the knife of their choice.

Knife Rights would like to recognize our two bills’ sponsors, Senator Mike Bell and Representative Vance Dennis, for their hard work over two years reforming knife law in Tennessee. Knife Rights would also like to recognize Smoky Mountain Knife Works and Taylor Brands whose generous support helped Knife Rights create a Sharper Future for their fellow Tennesseans.

To celebrate this great day, a group of Tennessee knife owners, members of the Knives and Bladed Tools Special Interest section of the Tennessee Gun Owners forum, many of whom were active in supporting the two bills, had a special limited edition run of Pro-Tech automatic knives produced. The Les George designed Rockeye Autos were multicolor anodized with the TGO logo on the front and have “Knife Freedom Day 7/01/2014” on the back side of the handle, and each is serial numbered. Awesome!

Knife Rights cautions that not all law enforcement officers may be aware of the change in the law, so be respectful, polite and cooperative if stopped, but suggest they may want to check before trying to enforce a law no longer on the books. All Knife Rights members should review attorney Evan Nappen’s recently updated article, “Knife Arrest! How Knife Owners Can Protect Themselves.”

Tennessee is the 7th state in which Knife Rights has repealed a ban on switchblades and other knives. This makes 18 legislative victories by Knife Rights in just over four years, including defeating four anti-knife bills. Knife Rights has passed 14 pro-knife bills in 11 states.

      Due to vague law Tennessee citizens were facing lots of problems for Automatic ‘Switchblade’ Knives & Carry Over 4-inches. It is good news for Tennessee citizens that now they can now own and carry the knife of their choice.
