VA Switchblade Concealed Carry Ban Repeal Passes Committee

Virginia HB 2298 that would remove switchblades from the list of weapons that cannot be carried concealed in the state has passed out of the House Courts of Justice Committee by a bipartisan vote of 16-4.

This is a good first step towards the bill being passed.Our repeal last year of Virginia’s ban on switchblades (automatic) knives did not include repeal of the ban on concealed carry. This bill takes care of that.

Thanks to our good friends Delegate Lee Ware and Virginia Citizens Defense League.
