Knife Rights' Oklahoma Knife Law Reform Effective Tomorrow

Gilbert, AZ: Knife Rights' Oklahoma Knife Law Reform bill, SB 1159, becomes effective on Tuesday, November 1. SB 1159 removes dagger, bowie knife, dirk knife and sword cane from the items prohibited from carry in Oklahoma, and finishes the job Knife Rights began last year with the repeal of the ban on carrying switchblade (automatic) knives and with the passage of Knife Law Preemption in Oklahoma.

Since Knife Law Preemption is already the law in Oklahoma, the revised law will be effective statewide.

Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter said, "this represents the culmination of three years of effort by Knife Rights in Oklahoma so that knife owners there can enjoy the freedom to own and carry the knife they choose."

Ritter continued, "Oklahoma's knife law reform is more proof that Knife Rights is the one getting it done™ for knife owners in America. Getting it done means having the perseverance to come back to a state's legislature as many times as necessary to finish the job. We can now count 21 pro-knife bills passed in 15 states in seven years. No other organization even comes close to that record."
