Knife Rights Director of Legislative Affairs, Todd Rathner, negotiated an amendment to the original bill with the Louisiana Sheriff’s Association and the Louisiana State Troopers which maintains the restriction on carrying a switchblade “intentionally concealed on one’s person.”

Allowing for the concealed carry of a switchblade in Louisiana is complicated because it would require a significant change to Louisiana’s concealed carry law. Knife Rights will continue to look for opportunities to fix this aspect of the law in the future.

Knife Rights’ record of 28 bills repealing knife bans at the state and local levels in 20 states in the past 8 years is unrivaled. With your support, Knife Rights is rewriting knife law in America™.
