Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- Indiana State Senator Jim Tomes has a holiday gift for us, Senate Bill SB06 which would repeal Indiana’s antiquated and irrational ban on the sale and possession of switchblades.

The bill is supported by Senator Brent Steele, Chair of the Corrections, Criminal and Civil Matters Committee that will hear the bill, and Senator Johnny Nugent.

Knife Rights will be present to testify in support of SB06 at the bill’s first hearing on January 10th. If you live, work or travel in Indiana, please contact your Senator and ask them to support SB06.

You can locate your Senator, or the Senator who represents where you work or travel, here: http://district.iga.in.gov/DistrictLookup/

The laws with respect to so-called switchblades and stilletos are out-dated and useless.

In virtually all states these days, you can easily and legally acquire far better spring knives made by top manufacturers of the best quality materials that open with the flick of a thumb.

These switchblades and stilettos have been reduced to curiosities with little to offer except to collectors; to utilize the valuable time of a state’s legal machinery to police such items is a terrible waste and an egregious misapplication of state resources.

Sweet.
I was looking at a MicroTech Halo some years back.
Anybody in the game got a good recommendation?

“Knives are also arms protected by the Second Amendment.”

What about ladies’ purses? Are they protected? Mine weighs a ton and would be my weapon of choice.

Improvised flails would likely not be protected, because they are not widely recognized as “arms” until they are used. ;-)
