2017 AKTI Efforts Continue Federal and State Efforts Including the Knife Owners’ Protection Act, Repeal of Restrictions on Auto-Open Knives, and Preemption
At AKTI, we believe knives and firearms should be legislated separately, and knife owners should not be forced to register as firearms owners in order to legally carry their tool. We call on the Illinois Legislature to take this initiatve one step further, and ensure that owners of automatic knives are allowed to carry their knives legally within the state, and without the restriction of a FOID card.”
So far thirteen handmade custom knifemakers have committed to donate a knife to be auctioned at AKTI’s second “Giving Back Event” during the Blade Show at the Renaissance Waverly, Atlanta.
