March 23, 2017: Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper today signed SB 17-008, the bill to repeal Colorado's switchblade and gravity knife ban. Congratulations to sponsors Sen. Owen Hill and Rep. Steve Lebsock for their effective leadership in moving this bipartisan bill thorough the legislature with overwhelming votes in both houses. Thanks to everyone who called or emailed the Governor urging him to sign the bill.
Knife Rights was pleased to be able to assist the sponsors in moving this bill through the legislature. Knife Rights' Director of Legislative Affairs, Todd Rathner, traveled to Denver to lobby the bill at the invitation of the sponsors, overcoming objections raised by some legislators. We'd also like to thank Sen. Hill's constituent, retired Air Force Master Sgt. John Bloodgood, whose request was the inspiration for this bill and who did a great job supporting the bill in testimony at the hearings.
Note that the repeal does not become effective until 90 days after the current legislative session ends. That would make enactment approximately August 9, 2017. We will let you know the actual enactment date once the session ends. Until enactment, possession of automatic and gravity knives remains illegal in Colorado. Also worth noting is that once enacted and the ban is repealed, automatic knives will be subject to Colorado's concealed carry blade length limitation of 3.5 inches or less.
We get asked a lot as to which states our knives legal in. The following states do NOT prohibit auto-open (also referred to as automatic, switchblade or switch knife) for non-law enforcement citizens. Check State Knife Laws for specific details on possession, carry, manufacturer or sale as some restrictions may apply in a specific state. See the list below for blade length restrictions. **Information cited from: “www.weaponlaws.wikidot.com/us-switchblade-laws”
