Beware! That folding knife in your pocket may turn you into a criminal if the Obama administration gets its way. Although there has been a lot of fear and speculation that the new administration wants to take your guns, the most pressing threat now is actually to your pocket knives. With the changing of the guard at U.S. Customs, that agency has now embarked on redefining "switchblades" under federal law to include a wide variety of one hand opening knives that never were intended to be prohibited. In fact, many of the knives U.S. Customs now seek to prohibit under the Federal Switchblade Law had not even been invented at the time of its enactment!
This new proposed U.S. Customs regulation is so broad that thousands of pocket knives will fall under its sweep and millions of knife owners will be affected. The problem is not simply that imports will be banned (which is bad enough), but that the "agency determination" will be used by domestic courts and law enforcement to determine what a "switchblade" is under both federal and state laws. Many states, including New Hampshire, fail to define switchblades and simply rely on the federal definition.

What’s next, letter openers?
Pointed sticks! I want to do pointed sticks!
Come and get ‘em!
The guy is a whacko!
Yezzir! That'll git yal a BUNCH of votes in the mid-terms!
Juuuust keep it up dum-azzez. I have seen to-the-bone stupid in the past but this is downright aww-some!
He'll have to pry it from my cold, dead fingers.
What about pointed sticks?
No not a wacko, a Marxist Fascist.
But we can just call him Dear Leader.
At the rate Dear Leader and his Fascist Socialists Party are going, we will be fleeing the USSA for more free societies, such as Red China and the old USSR, though Cuba is a shorter commute.
This SOB wants us to get his permission to breathe.
Those are next, along with pitch forks.
This must not be allowed to go through. Are we turning into England, where people are not even allowed to carry pocket knives? This is insanity and must be stopped!
Of interest is the fact that there are very few pocket knives made in the US. And a large percentage of pocket knives sold have the little piece on the blade which allows one to open it one handed. A very handy feature that I like.
Anyway, I rep for a number of knife wholesalers, and just by stopping importation the feds will pretty much eliminate pocket knives. Of course they already know this.
Each day I think that I can no longer be amazed at what the libs are doing, or the willingness of the average citizen to poo poo it. And each day it seems to get more frightening. Unless there is some sort of mass epiphany of average Americans, and soon, we are cooked. And I don’t believe in those kinds of miracles.
Gee,ban harsh language why dontcha?
