Knife Rights Moves To Reform Knife Laws In Michigan

Last year Knife Rights succeeded in getting Michigan's switchblade ban repealed. This year they are seeking to repeal the ban on the concealed carry of specifically excluded knives.

From Knife Rights:
On the heals of last year's enactment of Knife Rights' switchblade ban repeal in Michigan, Representative Steven Johnson has introduced HB 5512 to removed all the knives prohibited from concealed carry in Michigan statute.

Sec. 227. (1) would be removed entirely from Michigan's penal code: "A person shall not carry a dagger, dirk, stiletto, a double-edged nonfolding stabbing instrument of any length, or any other dangerous weapon, except a hunting knife adapted and carried as such, concealed on or about his or her person, or whether concealed or otherwise in any vehicle operated or occupied by the person, except in his or her dwelling house,  place of business or on other land possessed by the person."
We will let you know when it's time to contact your legislator on this bill. Stay tuned.

Knife Rights' record of 28 bills repealing knife bans at the state and local levels in 20 states in the past 8 years is unrivaled. With your support, Knife Rights is rewriting knife law in America™.
