Repeals have since been enacted in Alaska, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

Does open carry mean in a sheath on your hip??

VCDL President

Next year we need a bill to allow switchblades to be carried concealed. Right now the only choice is to openly carry them under VA law. You can concealed them while in your home and the curtilage of your home (area immediately around your home on your property). But switchblades needed to be legalized first and so they should be on July 1.

VCDL President

VCDL gave this bill a “strongly support” and had members contact legislators in support. It cleared committee, passed both House and Senate with a massive, veto-proof majority and is now headed to the Governor’s desk to sign into law. We expect it to be signed. Congratulations to Knife-rights!

Awesome!
