Kansas’ knife law is ‘near perfect,” lobbyist says

“In terms of knife law, Kansas is darn near perfect now,” said Todd Rathner, a lobbyist for the national group Knife Rights. As of July 1, Kansas no longer bans blades such as dirks, daggers, stilettos and switchblades or ones longer than 4 inches. “HB 2033 also prohibits local governments from enforcing any type of knife ordinance, making Kansas one of the most blade-friendly states in the union,” the Topeka Capital-Journal reported.
