Nice work once again! Any chance of getting the ban on larger Autos in California repealed?critter wrote: ↑Wed May 29, 2019 7:06 amKnife Rights supported HB 446, repealing the ban on carry of clubs (including tomahawks) and possession of knuckles (including trench knives and the like) has been signed by Texas Governor Abbot. The new law will become effective on September 1, 2019.
In 2013 Knife Rights’ repeal of Texas’ switchblade ban was enacted. In 2015 Knife Rights’ signature Knife Law Preemption was enacted, nullifying all local knife ordinances more restrictive than Texas state law, including two of the “10 Worst Anti-Knife Cities in America” at the time, San Antonio and Corpus Christi. In 2017 our bill removed all of the “illegal knives” in Texas law, finally allowing Texans the right to carry a Bowie knife, dagger and others in public.
NOTE: A Trench Knife with a blade over 5.5-inches will be considered a Location Restricted Knife and is banned from carry at some specific locations.

Thanks. Any change in CA knife laws is unlikely to occur anytime soon, absent some extraordinary situation developing. However, the more we roll back knife bans in more and more states, the more likely we will eventually be able to do something about CA knife laws. That's the way it works. You have to play the long game if you want to succeed in the long run. Help us now so we can help you later.
Kinda figured that was the situation with the Democratic super majority in Sacramento. Thank you again for addressing these restrictive and arcane laws across the country. Hopefully it's 2 steps forward. ..1 step back in most states!critter wrote: ↑Wed May 29, 2019 7:24 amThanks.

Thanks! Just to clear up any misconception. It isn't 'pressure." The knife community isn't well enough organized or big enough or engaged enough to exert "pressure." "Pressure" comes from being able to affect an election or having gobs of money to hand out, neither of which we can do. We are successful by understanding how the legislative and political process works and then working our butts off lobbying at the state houses for change by convincing legislators that it's worthwhile to them and their constituents for a variety of reasons that are often different for different legislators.
WOW! A 4 inch fixed or folder... all that I can say is, I'd have to leave Illinois to get that. With a 4 inch law, I could carry more of my collection. That would be great!JD Spydo wrote: ↑Wed May 29, 2019 4:38 pmI love the State of Texas. I've often wondered if you guys are ever going to pull off that "Republic of Texas" movement. Thus making Texas it's own nation. If that ever happens I'll for certain move there. I can't really complain about Missouri for the time being because I'm currently being allowed to legally carry a 4 inch folder and/or a fixed blade. Holy cow!! when I hear about the Communist states that try to bust people for a Spyderco Harpy it makes me cringe.
All I can say to the Great State of TEXAS>> more power to you all!!!! GOD Bless the State of TEXAS
