Good! The term "switchblade" is really just a word that has a scary connotation from the past that really isn't relevant today. I own an auto (Boker) and about a dozen assisted knives (Kershaws, SOG etc) and an axis lock Benchmade and can tell you that they open just as quickly as an auto I have ever seen. I was glad when TX changed the law to allow carrying autos last year, I bought the Boker just for S&Gs mainly. With the advent of assisted opening knives, automatics have really become something that really doesn't stand out from the pack in a practical sense, changing laws to reflect this is a step in the right direction.
