Strange Knife Laws In Oklahoma

A recent bill in Oklahoma – Knife Rights’ Oklahoma Knife Law Reform bill SB 1159 – passed in the Oklahoma House by 76-5, and has already been passed unanimously by the Senate. The bill now goes to the Governor, Mary Fallin, for signing.

The law would remove dagger, bowie knife, dirk knife and sword cane from the list of items prohibited from carrying in Oklahoma. Switchblades in Oklahoma were made legal last year with bill HB 1911.

SB 1159 will be effective statewide upon enactment on November 1, assuming Governor Fallin signs the bill.
