Many states and localities have bans or restrictions on various types of firearms and some states and localities have bans and restrictions on certain kinds of knives. The state of Virginia has had a long time ban on switchblades but now legislation to repeal this ban is on the table. 

Knife Rights, a group that is dedicated to creating a sharper future for America(very funny), has released a press release about the legislation.

The press release from Knife Rights reads:

Knife Rights’ Virginia Switchblade Ban Repeal Bill, SB 758, has been introduced by Senator Todd Pillion. Similar bills in 2017 and 2019 passed the legislature, but were vetoed by hostile governors. A new governor and legislative makeup gives us hope we can get it done this time.

Knife Rights will let you know when it is time to contact your legislators to support SB 758.

Knife Rights had led the effort to repeal switchblade bans or restrictions in 18 states, starting with New Hampshire in 2010. Repeals have since been enacted in Alaska, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

Altogether, Knife Rights’ efforts have resulted in 34 bills enacted repealing knife bans in 23 states and over 150 cities and towns since 2010.

Guns and knives go together pretty well and while this legislation introduced in Virginia is not saving the 2nd Amendment it is a sign that trends are going that way. Hopefully this legislation makes it through the state legislature and Governor Youngkin signs it, odds are that this is going to be the case.
