    Regardless of the list of sections that are affected, the only thing this bill does is repeal 750.226a - the ban on "auto knives".

    This is a good start and a clean bill (at this point).

    There is still a lot of work to do in the area of Michigan knife laws, again, a good start.

    wow. I read it through twice and still missed the "226a is repealed" at the end
    let's hope the FUDs make the same mistake.
    with modern knives, there is absolutely no need for the distinction in types of knives. My edc, which has no springs, assists, etc, is actually easier to lock open and closed than many switchblades i've checked out.
    which really just means the law against switchblades is absolutely pointless and founded in movie fantasy.
    "Sec. 2. All persons who are commonly known as “Greasers” or the issue of Spanish and Indian blood, ... who go armed and are not known to be peaceable and quiet persons, and who can give no good account of themselves, may be disarmed by any lawful officer, and punished..." - Disarming of "Greasers", An Act to punish Vagrants, Vagabonds, and Dangerous and Suspicious Persons” California, passed April 30, 1855.

    Here is the judiciary committee per this page... http://www.senate.michigan.gov/committee/judiciary.html

    Rick Jones
    (R) Committee Chair, 24th District
    Tonya Schuitmaker (R) Vice Chair, 26th District
    Tory Rocca (R) 10th District
    Patrick Colbeck (R) 7th District
    Steven M Bieda (D) Minority Committee Chair, 9th District

    None of those people are from my district, so I'm counting on you folks to put their feet to the fire. I'm not a constituent who matters, so I did what I can by linking to each one of their "contact me" pages, making it easy for you folks.

    It's Jones bill so it won't have a problem getting out of committee.

    You can write to the the clerk/secretary of the committee and address the issue for submission to the committee.

    You don't have to be a constituent of one of the Senators on the committee to address the committee itself.

    I'd be interested to know what knife you're describing...
    No clause in the constitution could by any rule of construction be conceived to give congress a power to disarm the people. Such a flagitious attempt could only be made under some general pretence by a state legislature. But if in any blind pursuit of inordinate power, either should attempt it, this amendment may be appealed to as a restraint on both.
