Nevada reforms remove Knife Bans

Nevada Governor Sandoval signed significant knife law reform legislation on 1 June, 2015.  The law removes antique bans on switchblade knives, dirks, daggers, and belt buckle knives.  State preemption of knife laws was stripped from the bill.  The law will go into effect on 1 July.

The bill is an interesting inversion of the knife law reforms enacted in Texas, where a comprehensive preemption law was passed, while antique bans on dirks and daggers, inherited from the 1873 Reconstruction government were left in place.

The reforms have been championed by Knife Rights, who characterize their efforts as opening a second front in the defense of the second amendment.

Great now at this rate how long will it take to get every weapon used for self defense approved for carry. a guy pulls a knife on me, I whip out a pair of steel nun chunks break the arm holding his knife and slam one bar up to the side of his head and drop him like a hot rock. there is no definition of what arms used for self defense are in the constitution. Pure case of self defense but I get arrested for using illegal nun chucks. I could have been legal to shoot him with a 44 mag. When will people understand self defense is what ever it takes, tire iron, carpenters hammer, sword or what ever is available?. Question why would anyone need a 30 round magazine, answer, because their may be 30 or more people attempting to do you harm. and if there are not 30 then you get to shoot some of them more than once.
