According to Knife Rights, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon has signed legislation repealing the ban on the possession, sale and manufacture of automatics—such as the Benchmade Infidel (pictured above)—in Missouri as long as they are not “in violation of federal law.” In practical terms, it means you cannot do so in interstate commerce, on Indian reservations or wherever federal regulations may prevent such activities.
Knife Rights officials indicated they worked closely with the National Rifle Association on this important legislation and appreciate the NRA as a strong partner in their second front in defense of the Second Amendment.
