The Ohio legislature finally got a budget done, but in the process our amendment with the language from Knife Rights’ Knife Law Reform bill was deleted.
That would be a lot more of a concern if the Senate hadn’t already passed SB 140 by an overwhelming bipartisan majority. It’s already been sent over to the House and awaits action once the summer recess is over.
SB 140 addresses the often abusive and discriminatory application of the existing Ohio weapons law against knife carriers, clarifying that unless the knife/edged tool is actually used as a weapon, it is legal to be carried.
It also removes from state statute the irrational prohibition against manufacture and sale of a switchblade knife and gravity knife. Possession and carry of these knives are already legal in Ohio.
