In a state that has a massive amount of issues to deal with and other more important "legalizing" laws to tackle, comes this breaking news. A bill is now of Gov Rauner's desk to legalize switchblade knives in Illinois.

There is a bunch of garbage in the article about how this is very important, even a safety issue. Switchblade knives, really?  Is this going to spike the Netfix rentals of The Outsiders?

If this ban on switchblades is lifted, Illinois will join Texas, Oklahoma, Michigan, and Colorado as states that have recently passed this law.

Illinois is broke, a massive tax increase is on the way, but thankfully we will soon have switchblade knives legalized.
