More on Knife Restrictions

Joe Huffman looks a bit deeper into the issue and concludes, “it appears they are pushing toward calling any knife you can open with one hand as a switchblade.”  I can open my Leatherman blade with one hand.  This should be interesting.

    Nobody seems to have noted that this is a proposed Customs Department / Border Patrol ruling.

    Thus it shouldn’t affect “the Federal definition” under Statute for states that don’t define it, nor possession inside the States.

    It could make imports and border crossings bloody awkward, though.

    Ahhh, but once it’s introduced in one place, as sure as the sun rises and sets, the libs will introduce it everywhere else, especially within the US.
    Remember, it’s for your safety, and the children.

    So…will some disabled people be able to get switchblade permits?

    And I can pull my fixed blade knife out of its sheath with one hand. Is that also classified as a switchblade?

    And the cutters used by carpenters and tradesmen, that you can click the blade out with one hand – switchblade?

    And what if you’re disabled and only have one hand?

    What the fuck are the elected idiots doing?

    OrangeNeck –
    Mostly what they have been doing for a long time is US!!

    Another ban based on racism, go figure. And another one banning the tool, not the use.

    True it is mainly based toward imports, but you will also see it applied to mail order knives.

    Someday, we might be seeing bumper stickers that say something like this:

    “When all tactical-folder knives are outlawed, only outlaws will have tactical-folder knives.”
