Knife Rights: Idaho Preemption Bill To House Floor

Knife Rights’ bill that would enact Knife Rights’ signature Knife Law Preemption in Idaho, H0620, was voted out of the House State Affairs committee with a Do Pass recommendation. Todd Rathner, Knife Rights Director of Legislative Affairs, testified in Boise in support of the bill.

Sponsored by Representative Jordan Redman, Knife Rights would especially like to extend our thanks to Chairman Brent Crane for expeditiously hearing our bill.

Knife Law Preemption is a Knife Rights’ criminal justice reform effort that repeals and prevents local ordinances more restrictive than state law which only serve to confuse or entrap law-abiding citizens traveling within or through the state. Preemption ensures citizens can expect consistent enforcement of state knife laws everywhere within a state.

Knife Rights passed the nation’s first Knife Law Preemption bill in Arizona in 2010 and has since passed preemption bills in Alaska, Georgia, Kansas, Montana, New Hampshire, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Knife Rights will let you know as soon as it is appropriate to contact your Idaho lawmakers to support H0620.

Idaho should be an easier state than say, Washington. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t a lot to do to get it done.
