Knife Rights Law Updates

Doug Ritter, Executive Director of Knife Rights, keeps us informed of our legislative progress on a regular basis.

Got this one via text last night late-

Update on Arizona Knife Law Preemption Bill

This afternoon, our Knife Law Preemption Bill was passed by the Committee of the Whole (COW) on a voice vote with no debate or amendments. This was the last opportunity for any amendments to be added and none were offered, which is a good sign for us. The COW vote is the last critical step before the final floor vote in the Senate, which is anticipated next week. We are also pleased to announce that at their monthly meeting last night, the Copper State Cutlery Association voted unanimously to support our Knife Law Preemption Effort and this bill.

Update on NH Knife Rights Bill

Just a quick update to let you know that Rep. Jenn Coffey’s New Hampshire Knife Rights Bill has passed the full NH House of Representatives (400 Legislators) with a unanimous vote on the consent calendar. Congratulations to Rep. Coffey on this critical vote. Next stop is the NH Senate, which could be a bigger challenge. Our lobbyist is already hard at work helping to get this bill through the Senate. Help pass this Knife Rights Bill in New Hampshire and send a message to other states with similar archaic knife laws.
