“This measure would remove one of the many federal regulatory burdens that have hindered manufacturing growth, interstate commerce and consumer practices for far too long. I thank AKTI for recognizing me with this honor.”
Rainer v. State
763 S.W.2d 615 (Tex. 1989)
The blade length restriction in Texas law references the cutting portion of the knife, not the sharpened edge.
The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI) and Senator Mike Crapo today (September 7, 2017) announced the introduction of the Freedom of Commerce Act, legislation that will repeal the Federal Switchblade Act of 1958 (15 U.S.C. § 1241 – 1244) and allow consumers to purchase any automatic knife legal in their state, regardless of where it was manufactured. The legislation will also remove burdensome prohibitions on free trade, interstate commerce, and consumer choice.
