    Az doesn't ban switchblade ownership, nor do the majority of States.

    it doesn't figure for me. a knife is a one-handed tool. why should someone be required to use two hands just to put a one-handed tool into operation?

    But Nevada does:

    1. Except as otherwise provided in this section and NRS 202.355 and 202.3653 to 202.369, inclusive, a person within this State shall not:

    (a) Manufacture or cause to be manufactured, or import into the State, or keep, offer or expose for sale, or give, lend or possess any knife which is made an integral part of a belt buckle or any instrument or weapon of the kind commonly known as a switchblade knife, blackjack, slungshot, billy, sand-club, sandbag or metal knuckles;

    Whats next, not letting us carry fixed blades? I dont carry a folder, but Im sure if CBP is trying to pull this, many other knife bans (as well as any other "weapon" used for tools or self defense) are sure to be on its tail...

    Violating state rights. Time to kick some sense in them. Obama a snake he has to be watched constantly. He knows how to tear a right down one lego at a time.

    Someone on a different thread stated that "wave" knives ( knives that can use a hook on the blade to catch on a pocket and open) are now illegal in Tx because of this assited opening thing. does that mean that the Cold Steel Ti- Lite is now illegal? Its not assited opening but does have a cullion that can catch on the pocket to open.

    Still Pending

    It looks like it's still got to pass the House.

    I'd keep the pressure on until it's been through both chambers and been signed.

    AG is correct, until the House and Senate agree on the language of the whole bill, not just this amendment, we could loose it.
