Atlanta, GA -(AmmoLand.com)- Knife Rights is pleased to announce that Wisconsin State Representative Kathleen Bernier and Senator Terry Moulton are the recipients of its 2016 Freedom’s Edge Award which was announced during BLADE Show in Atlanta, Georgia.
The annual Freedom’s Edge Award honors an individual Legislator or Legislators who has/have demonstrated their commitment to a Sharper Future by leadership in the fight to protect or enhance our knife rights.
Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter said, “Representative Bernier and Senator Moulton are being recognized for their sponsorship of AB 142 that repealed Wisconsin’s antiquated, burdensome and irrational switchblade ban and that also added knife law preemption to Wisconsin statutes. Knife Rights could not accomplish all we have without the leadership shown by state legislators such as Representative Bernier and Senator Moulton who stand up for their constituents’ freedoms.”
AB 142 was signed into law by Governor Scott Walker on February 6 of this year, making Wisconsin the eleventh state in which Knife Rights has repealed a switchblade ban and the ninth in which we have passed Knife Law Preemption.
The new law was enacted when it was officially published on February 7, 2016.
