    I had to put this in legal forums, since it technically is a legal issue, and I fear that not enough people read the knife channel on this forum.

    While I know that this is not directly gun related, another front of the .gov's attack against the people's right to keep and bear useful tools. I had to make it aware to you guys, in case any of you didn't know.

    U.S. Customs and Border Patrol are looking to reclassify most folding knives as switchblades. I know that many of you, if not all of you guys, carry a good folding knife with you at all times so this will effect all of us. The website that I will link to has info on how to take action against this.

    The deadline to comment on this is June 21st! Act Now!

    To make this more gun-related :p what do you think of this thing?

    Whatever Customs ultimately decides to do will only directly affect importation. There are several US manufacturers of assisted-opening knives. That said, apparently some states don't actually define a switchblade in their own laws, and this could be a problem in those states.

    See what kind of crap that comes from Congress abrogating its power (unconstitutionally, I might add) to bureaucrats?

    "NOT from what I read, From CCRKBA"

    But have you read the actual proposal? I did. I suggest you read it for yourself.
