Please watch the personal update from Mike Vellekamp, Vnives, who has been on the ground working on this knife bill for the industry and all knife users.
If you live, work or travel frequently in Washington State
We have been working diligently in Washington State on passage of SB 5782. Automatic knives are currently legal to manufacture in the state, but not legal for citizens to possess or sell. SB 5782 would allow the sale and possession of automatic knives. Thanks to Mike Vellekamp, Vnives, who has spearheaded Washington State knife law changes since 2012.
This legislation has passed the Senate and on February 28, SB 5782 was voted to out of the Washington House Civil Rights & Judiciary Committee with a recommendation to the House to pass.
Action Needed NOW
Contact your House representative and ask them to vote YES on SB 5782.
As always, when you contact your elected officials be polite and to the point.
