Senators Mike Enzi (R-WY) and Mike Lee (R-UT) have filed the Senate companion bill to the House’s Knife Owners Protection Act which was filed last November. See? Who says everything that happens in DC smells like sewage?
The KOPA would provide ‘safe harbor’ provisions to protect knife owners while traveling through knife-unfriendly jurisdictions like New Jersey or New York City. As long as the traveler complied with Federal knife laws (which basically don’t exist, except for ‘switchblades’) he or she could transport any knife through any jurisdiction as long as it was locked up or not immediately accessible.
The KOPA is far from a nationwide knife carry bill, but it does start to chop the legs out from under obnoxious state and local laws. Contact your senator here and urge them to support S.1955.
