Knife Rights

USA -( The bipartisan bill to repeal Colorado’s Switchblade and Gravity Knife ban SB 17-008, overwhelmingly passed the House 59-6.

The bill legalizes the possession, carry and sale of a gravity knife or switchblade by removing such knives from the definition of “illegal weapon.” It will now be sent to Governor Hickenlooper for action.

If you live, work or travel in Colorado, please call or email the Governor and politely ask him to please sign SB 17-008.

That’s all you need to do, just keep it very simple, “please sign SB 17-008” and thank him.
