Pocketknife ban in Antlers reversed

Posted:

ANTLERS, OK -- Pocketknives are once again allowed in the City of Antlers.

Wednesday, the city council approved an ordinance in a special session allowing people to carry pocketknives for hunting, fishing or recreational use.

It's the ordinance the city intended to pass earlier this month, but passed another ban on concealed knives instead. It has been illegal to carry pocketknives in Antlers since 2009.

No tickets were written while the ban was in place.

The new ordinance is effective immediately.
