Knife Rights Action Alert: Michigan Switchblade-ban repeal hearing scheduled. Please Call.

Doug Ritter and the Knife Rights crew are continuing their frenetic pace as they try to “rewrite knife-law in America”. Fresh off the recent signing of Colorado’s switchblade/gravity knife ban repeal, they are hoping that the state of Michigan will be the next domino to fall. They have been successful in more than a dozen states so far, with more on the way if all goes well.

They are asking that you please contact the members of the senate Judiciary Committee, and politely ask them to support the repeal bill.

From Knife Rights:

Knife Rights’ Michigan Switchblade Ban Repeal bill, SB 245, has been scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee tomorrow, March 28, at 3 PM. SB 245 would repeal Michigan’s outright ban on possession and sale of automatic (switchblade) knives. Since the sponsor of the bill, Senator Rick Jones, is also the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee, we are hopeful that the bill will pass.

However it would still be helpful if those who live, work or travel to Michigan would call the committee members TODAY and POLITELY ask them to “please support SB245 when it is heard Tuesday.” Keep it just that simple.

Chairman Rick Jones: 517-373-3447
Sen. Tonya Schuitmaker: 517-373-0793
Sen. Tony Rocca: 517-373-7315
Sen. Patrick Colbeck: 517-373-7350
Sen. Steve Bieda: 517-373-8360

Knife Rights has repealed switchblade bans in Alaska, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Missouri, New Hampshire, Nevada, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin.

Even though I am a Buckeye, I will be making the call. I am hoping to go deer hunting this Fall with a buddy in “that State up North”. Fingers crossed that this goes through with minimal obstruction.

  1. Too bad I read this post an hour after the hearing started. It is embarrassing to me that us Michiganders have stricter knife laws than a place like Colorado. Now that I know it is in the pipeline, I will know to contact my representatives when it comes up to a vote.
