Saves more than 11 million one-hand and assisted-opening knife users from being criminals
Another AKTI Success for Knife Owners…..We do have a voice and can make a difference! Governor Perry signed AKTI introduced legislation Texas HB 4456 on Thursday, June 18, 2009. It was law effective September 1, 2009.
AKTI extends heartfelt thanks to….
Senator Deuell and Representative Driver for their support by introducing bills in the Texas Senate (TX S 2411) and House of Representatives (HB 4456). The Texas legislature unanimously supported AKTI’s effort to clarify Texas knife statutes and assure that law-abiding individuals were not wrongly accused of possessing switchblades. AKTI’s advocacy representative did an outstanding job of spearheading the efforts from initiation to signing.
