We are not yet done with 2020! Knife Rights’ Ohio Knife Law Reform Bill, SB 140, could come up for a vote by the full House as soon as tomorrow (Tuesday). We need your help to push SB 140 over the line!
SB 140 would change Ohio knife law by making two separate substantive changes:
1. Repealing the ban on manufacture and sale of “switchblade,” “spring blade” and “gravity” knives;
2. Clearing up the confusion in Ohio law regarding carry of ANY knife by defining a knife, razor or cutting instrument as a “deadly weapon” or “weapon” ONLY if it is used as a weapon. This would allow carrying any knife concealed in Ohio.
SB140 already passed the Senate 32-1 in June of 2019.
