Bi-Partisan Amendment to Save Pocket Knives

Knife Rights is reporting that an amendment has been introduced to stop the Customs enforcement of new regulations that would reclassify many types of common pocket knives as switchblades:

We now have a a bi-partisan amendment that has the critical support from the Senate committees which have responsibility for the FSA and which is endorsed by the Administration (Customs and Border Production have signed off on it). That gives it a very good chance of making it through the process, but first we have to get it voted into the Homeland Security Appropriations Bill.

They are asking people to write their senators and ask them to support it.  The amendment basically adds a specific exception to the Federal Switchblade Act for assisted opening folding knives.
