Please Help Get Knife Preemption Bill Up For Vote!


Butch Vallotton’s table was abuzz with activity at last year’s BLADE Show ( We need your help to get Georgia Knife Preemption Bill SB432 scheduled for a vote in the coming days or it will not become law.

Georgia Knife Preemption Bill SB432 must be scheduled for a vote in the coming days or it will not become law, Knife Rights reported.

    SB432 makes certain that Georgia’s knife laws are consistent throughout the state. As the home of the BLADE Show (, this is very important to knife owners, collectors and manufacturers and means millions of dollars in business to Georgia.

    The Georgia legislature is in the final hours of the 2012 session and there are a lot of bills competing to be heard before the legislature adjourns, most likely on Thursday.

    It is critical for you to call the office of Georgia’s Speaker of the House David Ralston and POLITELY request that he “please schedule SB432 for a vote as soon as possible.” That’s all the message you need to leave.

    If you are a BLADE Show attendee, or ever plan to be, and even if you are not a Georgia resident, you have a stake in this issue…CALL TODAY!  Phone calls will have the greatest impact.
