Kansas Rep. Gary Hayzlett has introduced HB2584 that would repeal the antiquated ban on switchblade knives and enact knife law preemption in the state, a KnifeRights news release reported. The report added that Hayzlett introduced the bill at the request of KnifeRights officials.
Preemption prevents local political jurisdictions from enacting knife regulations that are more restrictive than state law.
If you live, work or travel in Kansas, please contact your representative and ask him or her to support HB2584.
