Pennsylvania Switchblade Ban Repeal Bill Passes House

HB 1929, a bill to repeal Pennsylvania’s ban on automatic knives, passed the House by an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 202-1. Congratulations to our good friend sponsor Representative Martin Causer for his efforts that got this bill through the House with nearly unanimous bipartisan support.

Knife Rights was pleased to be able to work with Rep. Causer as part of our comprehensive plan to see important criminal justice and knife law reform enacted in Pennsylvania. In the Senate, our good friend Senator Sharif Street has introduced SB 1013, a complimentary bill.that would also repeal Pennsylvania’s irrational switchblade ban.

Knife Rights will let you know when it is time to contact your Senators to support the repeal of Pennsylvania’s switchblade ban.

Repeals have since been enacted in Alaska, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia (effective July 1), Washington and Wisconsin.
