01 Mis­sis­sippi Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Gary Sta­ples in­tro­duced HB 924, Knife Rights’ bill to re­move “Bowie knife, dirk knife, butcher knife and switch­blade knife” from Mis­sis­sippi’s deadly weapons statutes. 02 Vir­ginia Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Michael We­bert in­tro­duced HB 890, Knife Rights’ bill that would al­low the sale, pos­ses­sion and carry of switch­blade knives with a CCW per­mit. Given the dif­fi­cult po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion in Vir­ginia at this time, this bill is not ex­pected to move any­time soon. Fil­ing en­sures the bill is in the queue, ready to go. 03 In re­sponse to the tragic Texas church shoot­ings last Novem­ber, Sen­a­tor Ben Chafin in­tro­duced Knife-rights-sup­ported SB 372 that would re­peal Vir­ginia’s ban on car­ry­ing “a gun, pis­tol, bowie knife, dag­ger, or other danger­ous weapon” to a “place of wor­ship while a meet­ing for re­li­gious pur­poses is be­ing held.” 04 In Wash­ing­ton, HB 2600, a Knife-rights-sup­ported bill al­low­ing con­cealed carry of “a fixed blade knife hav­ing a blade of 6 inches or less in length,” was in­tro­duced by lead spon­sor Rep­re­sen­ta­tive Mor­gan Ir­win with bi­par­ti­san cospon­sors.
