Senator Ihara has introduced Senate Bill 126.
Description: Prohibits sale of pocket knives. Defines pocket knife.
I really doubt that this will fly through the legislature. I know too many hunters, fishermen, and people who use pocket knives as a simple tool.
I’m amazed that it even passed the first reading… but then again, it seems like everything passes the first reading.
Any person who knowingly manufactures, sells, transfers, possesses, or transports a pocket knife in the State shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.
As used in this section:
“Pocket knife” means a knife with a blade that folds into the handle and which is suitable for carrying in the pocket.“
