Posted on 04/08/2013 7:18:30 AM PDT by marktwain
This weekend Knife Rights issued an alert regarding a repeal of the ban on switchblades in Texas. They are asking that those who reside, work, or travel to Texas contact the legislators below urging their support for HB 1862 which would repeal the ban.
I'm glad to see that Knife Rights is working so hard on the second front for the Second Amendment.
In Texas, Knife Rights supported HB1862 has been scheduled for a hearing this Tuesday, April 9, before the Texas House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence. HB1862, sponsored by Representative Harold Dutton Jr., will repeal the antiquated, senseless ban on the possession of switchblade (automatic) knives in Texas. Knife Rights lobbyist Todd Rathner is on his way to Austin to testify on this important bill and he needs YOUR help!
If you live, work or travel in Texas, PLEASE Call and Write EACH of the Committee Members TODAY and urge them to vote in favor of HB1862.

Whether writing or calling, all that is necessary is to simply ask them to vote in favor of HB1862. Keep it POLITE, short and to the point.
It would be almost nostalgic to see gangs using switchblades.
I would love for my switchblades to become legal.
My favorite one has a broken locking mechanism and I would love to be able to get it repaired.
A blade is a blade is a blade. How hard is that to figure out?
