Knife Owners will have a new federal protection while traveling under legislation advocated for by the American Knife & Tool Institute.
HB 892 becomes Act 341 and provides that the manufacture, ownership, possession, custody and use of any switchblade (automatic) knife is now legal effective August 1, 2018.
This is another step in the right direction to ensuring all law abiding residents of Louisiana are protected by the state’s laws, and allow to carry automatic knives. We encourage Governor Edwards to sign HB 892 as soon as possible.”
“We are extremely encouraged by today’s movement on HB 892,” said CJ Buck, President of AKTI. “This is another step in the right direction…”
Legislation Would Repeal the Current Prohibition on the Manufacture, Ownership, Possession, Custody, and Use of Automatic Knives
