The Knife Rights sponsored Oklahoma SB 1159 has crossed another legislative milestone. Today it passed out of Senate committee with a “do pass” recommendation. This bill cleans up the loose ends left behind when preemption and switchblade legalization was passed last year.
February 18, 2016: Knife Rights’ Oklahoma Knife Law Reform bill, SB 1159, has been passed out of the Senate Public Safety Committee with a “do pass” recommendation by a unanimous vote. Introduced by Senator Nathan Dahm and sponsored in the House by Rep. John Paul Jordan, SB 1159 will finish the job Knife Rights started last year by removing dagger, bowie knife, dirk knife and sword cane from the items prohibited from carry in Oklahoma. Last year Knife Rights repealed the ban on carrying switchblade (automatic) knives and passed Knife Law Preemption in Oklahoma.
With Knife Law Preemption already the law in Oklahoma, if we succeed in getting SB 1159 enacted, it will automatically be the law throughout the state.
