Knife Rights is working to alter knife laws in Ohio through two different avenues. SB 140 is making its way through the system as a standalone bill, and additionally its most important verbiage is included in the current proposed Senate budget amendment.
Both pieces of legislation aim to alter the same elements of Ohio knife law. “SB 140 and the budget amendment language addresses the often abusive and discriminatory application of the existing Ohio weapons law against knife carriers, clarifying that unless the knife/edged tool is actually used as a weapon, it is legal to be carried,” Knife Rights says. Under current law, there is much vagueness in what makes a knife illegal to carry, meaning that interpretation is often left to cops and can be easily skewed towards the negative.
