Knife Rights' Michigan Switchblade Ban Repeal Bill Signed by Governor

    Knife Rights’ Michigan Switchblade Ban Repeal bill, SB 245, was signed yesterday by Governor Rick Snyder.

    SB 245, sponsored by Senator Rick Jones, simply repeals Section 750.226a (switchblade ban) of the Michigan penal code originally enacted in 1952. SB245 is the culmination of years of effort by Knife Rights and our friends in Michigan including Senator Mike Green, the original sponsor of the bill.

    SB245 becomes effective in 90 days on October 10, 2017. Switchblade (Automatic) knives remain illegal in Michigan until then.

    Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter noted, “this is a great day for Michigan knife owners, but there is still plenty of work to be done to rid Michigan of its remaining archaic and vague knife restrictions. Knife Rights will keep working until Michigan’s law-abiding knife owners are free to carry any blade they want.”

    Knife Rights has repealed switchblade bans in Alaska, Colorado, Indiana, Kansas, Maine, Missouri, New Hampshire, Nevada, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas and Wisconsin and now in Michigan.
