Gilbert, AZ –-(Ammoland.com) – Knife Rights' Oklahoma Knife Law Reform bill, SB 1159, which has already been passed unanimously by the Senate, was voted out of the House Public Safety Committee with a unanimous Do Pass recommendation. The bill now moves to the full House for a vote.
SB 1159 will finish the job Knife Rights started last year by removing dagger, bowie knife, dirk knife and sword cane from the items prohibited from carry in Oklahoma. Last year Knife Rights repealed the ban on carrying switchblade (automatic) knives and passed Knife Law Preemption in Oklahoma.
With Knife Law Preemption already the law in Oklahoma, if we succeed in getting SB 1159 enacted, it will automatically be the law throughout the state.
