Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

I've collected auto's since I was 12 and scored a Super Automatic at a flea market. Just over a year ago, Governor Rick Perry decriminalized switchblades and butterfly knives here in Texas. Carrying my precious auto's everyday has been as awesome as I ever imagined. I want to know how others feel about the right to carry auto's and what the current status is in their states?

Missouri Switchblade Ban Repeal Signed Into Law Print E-mail - See more at: http://www.kniferights.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=vi...

happened in July of 2012!

Cheers to Missouri! I heard Florida, Arkansas, Alaska, Indiana, I think are also legal now. It's about time someone did something about what are dated and ridiculous laws banning auto's. Switchblades have been demonized by Hollywood and created an unfounded paranoia. Switchblades don't provide someone w/ a tactical advantage or motive to harm anybody. The vast majority of assaults involving knives are done w/ kitchen knives or fixed blade knives.

And when you factor in all pocket knives have thumb studs on the blade now and open via one hand as fast or faster than some switchblades, there is no real difference other than the engineering.

TN joined the ranks of the states repealing is 2014 also

i agree completely! An automatic knife is no different than a kitchen or chef knife . And for politicians to demonize them is ludicris. Well most of what gets passed into law these days is ludicrous anyway.

Yeah that is one thing I have always appreciated about Texas, we like our weapons. Switchblades are no more dangerous than any other pocket- but a whole lot cooler! Every time I hand one of my Microtech's to someone who knows nothing about auto's they pretend it's a weapon. Like they're in some bad 80's movie. I explain to them that, to me a pocket knife, any pocket knife, is a tool FIRST and a weapon LAST. They don't issue Stilletto's to GI's for combat, they give them a full-tang fixed blade fighting knife.

Tennessee lifted just about all knife restrictions as well, more incentive for me to try to leave CA (sadly high costs here make it just about prohibitive)

 Here in Florida I don't really know the law. However I have openly bought all kinds of automatics and switchblades at gun-knife shows and flea markets. I use common sense on where not to carry them, also.

Just googled the Florida law. Sounds like they are legal to buy and own but fall under the concealed weapons laws. Sounds like a lot of gray area there. 

I agree, Steve. The hysteria over "West Side Story" is what initially prompted these bans in the late 1950s/early 1960s, that was over half a century ago.....-time to move on-

Congratulations! (and people wonder why I'm so desperate to leave CA) Would love to have a switchblade in my pocket every day!
