Knife Rights’ Vermont Knife Law Preemption Bill Introduced

Gilbert, AZ –-( Vermont State Representative Patrick Brennan, Co-Chairman of the Vermont Legislative Sportsmen’s Caucus, has introduced a Knife Rights requested bill H.165 that would enact Knife Law Preemption in Vermont.

H.165 has been assigned to the House Committee on Fish, Wildlife and Water Resources.

Vermont already has pretty reasonable knife laws, but preemption prevents a patchwork of local ordinances more restrictive than state law which only serve to confuse or entrap law-abiding citizens traveling within or through the state. Preemption ensures citizens can expect consistent enforcement of state knife laws everywhere in a state.

Knife Rights passed the nation’s first Knife Law Preemption bill in Arizona in 2010 and has since passed preemption bills in Georgia, Kansas, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Utah.
