Switchblade Laws Just Got Switched
March 31, 2016
Now this new law doesn’t mean anyone can walk down the street waving a knife around and get away with it. There are still some limits on carrying a knife, and it’s important to know what you can and can’t do. To set the record straight, here’s a list of knife carrying cans and can’ts.
- You can carry a knife without a concealed carry permit, unless you are already banned from carrying a firearm for any reason.
- You can’t be charged with disorderly conduct just for carrying a knife. This was the case for firearms and now knifes fall under the same rule.
- You can now carry a switchblade, which were previously illegal.
- You can’t be stopped by city or county regulations. This new law is preemption, meaning because it is a state law, it trumps local laws.
