Knife Rights supported Georgia HB 135, that would enact Constitutional Carry in the Peach State, passed the House 94-57 last week. HB 135 would eliminate the existing 12-inch limit on carry of knives without a concealed carry permit. The bill now moves to the Senate. Governor Kemp has said he will sign a Constitutional Carry bill if passed.
We are pleased to be working with our friends at GeorgiaCarry.org to get this bill passed. We will let you know when it is time to contact your legislators to move HB 135 forward.
In 2012 Knife Rights passed Knife Law Preemption in Georgia, voiding local ordinances more restrictive than state law. That included Atlanta’s ban on switchblades, which technically affected exhibitors and attendees at BLADE Show.
In 2017 we increased the legal carry length for a knife from 5 inches to 12 inches.
