Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law generally prohibits a person from manufacturing, selling,
transporting, purchasing, or possessing a switchblade knife. This bill excludes from
the definition of switchblade knife a knife with closure-biased springs that require
physical force to be applied to the blade in order to open the knife. This bill exempts
from the prohibition qualified law enforcement officers, qualified former law
enforcement officers, and persons who have a license to carry a concealed weapon,
including certain out-of-state licenses.
The deck chairs are nicely arranged. My CRKT is still a switchblade. The P4P hegemony has expanded its reign.
