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.

From KnifeRights:

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 Last year Knife Rights repealed the ban on carrying switchblade (automatic) knives and passed Knife Law Preemption in Oklahoma.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.

    SB1159 Passed Senate 43-0 on Tuesday late afternoon! On to the House…

    1. Woohoo!

      Any updates on the MD bill that had its hearing yesterday? I submitted written testimony through Senator Wayne Norman’s office but I don’t know if it was used or not. Hopefully the hearing went favorably.

        Hearing ran late very late, but we did our presentation. All the support letters were in the bill packets each committee member receives. Now we will be working on the next step to to get the bill voted on in committee.

        1. Thanks Doug.
