Knife Rights’ Nevada Knife Law Reform Effective As of July 1st

Knife Rights is Rewriting Knife Law in America


Gilbert, AZ -( Knife Rights’ Nevada Knife Law Reform Bill, SB 176, went into effect as of July 1.

This legislation repeals existing bans on switchblade knives (longer than 2-inches), dirks, daggers and belt buckle knives. Unfortunately, because knife law preemption was stripped from the bill, citizens and travelers will still have to be wary of local regulations more restrictive than the new state law.

Existing local restrictions remain in effect. Also, the state ban on concealed carry of machetes remains in force. Knife Rights will be back next session to work to pass knife law preemption which would repeal the local restrictions.

Knife Rights continues to rewrite knife law in America. Nevada joins ten other states where Knife Rights has repealed knife bans since passing the nation’s first repeal of knife bans in New Hampshire in 2010.

Knife Rights has since then repealed knife bans in Alaska, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Missouri, Nevada, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Washington.
