CALL and EMAIL the Governor TODAY!


Gilbert, AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- Knife Rights’ requested Knife Law Preemption bill, HB 1460, and Knife Rights’ Switchblade Ban Repeal bill, HB 1911, have both passed the Senate, by votes of 44-1 and 43-0, respectively.

HB 1911 now goes to Governor Mary Fallin, while HB 1460 is going back to the House for what we expect to be a quick concurrence vote on an amendment that the Senate included which allows schools to regulate possession of knives on school grounds.

If you live, work or travel in Oklahoma, please contact Governor Fallin and ask her to please sign HB 1911. Phone: (405) 521-2342 or Click here to Email the Governor

Whether writing or calling, all that is necessary is to simply ask her to please sign HB 1911. That’s it, keep it short and to the point.

Knife Law Preemption repeals and prevents 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 Alaska, Georgia, Kansas, New Hampshire, Tennessee and Utah.

Automatic knives are legal in 39 states (some with restrictions) and 27states have no restrictions whatsoever on these knives. Eight of those 27 states have been added by Knife Rights since 2010, including Maine just last week. Knife Rights passed the nation’s first repeal of a automatic knife ban in 2010 in New Hampshire and has since passed repeal of automatic knife bans (and repealed other knife restrictions) in Alaska, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Missouri, Tennessee and Texas.
