Michigan Knife Law Reform Bill Introduced

Michigan Representative Ryan Berman and nine co-sponsors have introduced HB 5883, a bill that would repeal the state’s ban on concealed carry of “a dagger, dirk, stiletto, a double-edged nonfolding stabbing instrument of any length, or any other dangerous weapon” A “a hunting knife adapted and carried as such” is already excluded from the ban.

We will let you know when it is time to contact your legislators to move HB 5883 forward.

In 2017 we were able to repeal Michigan’s ban on switchblade (automatic) knives. Last year our Knife Law Preemption bill was passed, but was vetoed by Governor Whitmer.
