West Virginia Knife Law Preemption Bill Introduced
West Virginia Senator Charles Trump has introduced SB 96 that would expand the state’s firearms preemption statute to include “deadly weapons.” “Knives” are included in the definition of “deadly weapons.” Knife Rights is honored to be working with Sen. Trump and our friends at West Virginia Citizens Defense League to develop and promote this bill that would add West Virginia to the growing list of states with knife law preemption.
Preemption prevents enforcement of existing local knife ordinances, and prohibits new ordinances, more restrictive than state law which only serve to confuse or entrap law-abiding citizens traveling within or through the state.
We will let you know when it is time to contact your legislators in West Virginia.
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, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Wisconsin.
Carry a Knife – Save a Life™
Moshe Lefkovits, of Spring Valley, N.Y., is being hailed as a hero after using his knife to stop a dog attack. The dog attacked a one-year-old boy and his sister on Tuesday in front of their home. Lefkovits, a volunteer with a local emergency services provider, was driving down the street, saw the attack and rushed over, using his knife to cut the baby’s clothing, releasing him from the dog’s jaws.
The baby was bruised from being thrown back and forth by the dog, but he and his sister escaped with no bites thanks to Lefkovits’ actions. A bystander was subsequently attacked and bitten in the hand and arm before others could pin down the dog. The bystander required surgery.
