All of us who support our right to keep and bear firearms have been worried about Obama banning guns. Well it appears he has replaced the management
at U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) with his own people and they are trying to sneak a rule change through that will make all assisted opening
and one hand opening knives illegal under the 1958 Switchblade law.
Details are here: Kniferights
U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) has proposed revoking earlier rulings that assisted opening knives are not switchblades. The proposed new rule
would not only outlaw assisted opening knives, its broad definition of a switchblade would also include one-handed opening knives and could be easily
interpreted to cover most other pocket knives, even simple old-fashioned slip-joints.
This is a cowardly act to further disarm the American people unconstitutionally. The 2a enshrines the right to bear arms, not just firearms but all
This is yet another example of the Obama administration giving us more of the same running roughshod over the Constitution just as Bush did and
Clinton before him etc.
This needs to be stopped. If they get away with this they will most likely try something similar with ammo imports.
I carry a one hand opener with me always and use it for everything from breaking down boxes to cleaning fish and game. What else shall I use? A
stick? A rock? Wait those can be dangerous weapons too, perhaps Obama will next make it illegal to pick up a rock?
Let's hear your thoughts on this Americans. Let's hear from the UK about what a cluster foxtrot their knife laws have been.
Here is the CBP.
Make your voice heard that you will not be infringed.
Stop everyone you see on the street with a knife clipped to their pocket and tell them about this.
I'm getting tired of these back door sneak attacks against mine and my families safety.
