UPDATE: Knife Rights is Getting It Done™ 2013 Legislative Successes in Review

Persistence pays off. Our success in passing legislation in Kansas, Alaska and Indiana was the culmination of two-year efforts in those states. This is testament to our determination and understanding of the legislative process. A setback is not defeat. We’ll always come back stronger the next time around.

In every state where we claim success, it is the result of aggressive lobbying by Knife Rights on the ground in the state capitol, working closely with legislators to get pro-knife legislation introduced and passed.

Knife Rights Success in 2013:

  • Kansas Knife Law Preemption, Ban on Switchblades, Dirks, Daggers & Stilettos Repealed
  • Alaska Knife Law Preemption, Ban on Switchblades Repealed
  • Tennessee Knife Law Preemption
  • Indiana Ban on Switchblades Repealed
  • Texas Ban on Switchblades Repealed
  • New Jersey Opposed Anti-Knife Bill

In addition, our Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit against New York City and New York District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. continues, with significant successes in the past year. Earlier this year Knife Rights submitted Experts’ Reports that support our positions made in our pleadings. Neither NYC nor the DA filed any Expert Reports. Depositions of our experts are expected to be completed by year end.

With your support, no organization in history has passed more pro-knife legislation than Knife Rights.

5 Years: 2009 – 2013 (see below)
13 Pro-Knife Bills Passed
7 Knife Law Preemption Bills Passed
7 Knife Ban Repeals Passed
4 Anti-Knife Bills Defeated

The results speak for themselves. Knife Rights is America’s most effective knife owners advocacy organization!

Thank you for helping us create a Sharper Future for All Americans™!
