Interstate Transport Act: Enhanced Protection for Knife Owners Nationwide

The American Knife & Tool Institute (AKTI), a nonprofit trade association representing the entire knife community, continues to work to promote common-sense knife law reform at the federal, state, and local levels. Throughout 2017, AKTI has had numerous successes in easing burdensome restrictions on knife owners throughout the nation, including a repeal of the switchblade prohibition in Colorado and advancement of the switchblade repeal in Michigan, which is likely to be enacted this year. In addition, AKTI has continued its work to protect lawful knife owners traveling through the current patchwork of state and local knife laws with the introduction of the Interstate Transport Act.
