Sponsored by Representative John Frullo with co-sponsor Rep. Harold Dutton, HB 1935 would complete Knife Rights’ efforts to bring knife freedom to Texas by removing entirely the definition of “illegal knife” in Section 46.01(6) of the Penal Code. This includes the prohibition on double edge blades, Bowie knives and the 5.5-inch carry limit.
Rep. Frullo was honored with Knife Rights’ Freedom’s Edge Award for his role as sponsor of Knife Rights’ Texas Knife Law Preemption Bill that was enacted into law in 2015.
Rep. Dutton was honored with Knife Rights’ Freedom’s Edge Award for his role as sponsor of Knife Rights’ Texas Switchblade Ban Repeal Bill that was enacted into law in 2013.
Knife Rights is rewriting knife law in America™. Knife Rights passed the nation’s first Knife Law Preemption bill removing patchworks of local knife laws that trap unwary citizens in Arizona in 2010 and has since passed preemption bills in Alaska, Georgia, Kansas, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.
