Not really a "gun bill but it affects the 16-11-125.1 code section
SB 49 Link:
Removes "offense and defense" - neutral effect
and removes knives of 5 to 11.99999 inches from regulation - less regulation effect.
My K-Bar would now be just a tool. OK.
I think less regulation of knives, especially less regulation of openly carry knives, it's a good thing .
Even though Senate Bill 49 doesn't specifically address open carry versus concealed carry, I think commonsense tells us that knives with blades of 12 inches or more are very unlikely to ever be carried concealed.
Giant daggers, swords, and machetes are all things that would people would carry openly and wear on their belt in a sheath or scabbard.
So this sounds like a good law. I am calling some senators today to ask them to support SB 49 . First to get it out of the Public Safety Committee, and then on for a full Senate vote .
Being heard in Senate Public Safety Committee today.
Are you there? Please provide updates.
No, I'm afraid I'm not there. I saw it on the committee meeting list.
Passed out of committee unanimously.
Ok, even the democrats voted for it? Hmmm......
Makes me suspicious, too.
Thanks, hanging out here has made me a bit more paranoid. It's good to see that I'm not alone in my reaction. I reread the bill, brief as it is, and can't see a catch. But when the democrats endorse lessening government restrictions it does cause me to check.
Why the backhanded compliments? If your Representative is a Democrat and voted for it, please send a note expressing your gratitude.
I did not see this bill on the Senate Rules calendar for today. Does anyone know what the status of the bill currently is? Will it be voted on today?
I think about an hour ago, Senator Bill Heath added an Amendment to SB 99 that included his knife bill verbiage. Then SB 99 went on to pass a Senate floor vote 52-1.
