USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- West Virginia SB 96 that would expand the state’s firearms preemption statute to include “deadly weapons,” including knives, was passed by the Senate with an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 30-2. It has been sent to the House.
Thanks to everyone who uses Knife Rights’ Legislative Action Center to email Senators in support of this bill.
Knife Rights will let you know when it is time to contact the legislature on this bill.
Preemption prevents enforcement of existing local knife ordinances and prohibits new ordinances, more restrictive than state law which only serves to confuse or entrap law-abiding citizens traveling within or through the 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, Montana, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Wisconsin.
