Skip to comments.Obama Now Wants Your Pocket Knife
Posted on 06/04/2009 8:10:38 PM PDT by Revtwo
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.

I plan to go out & buy a whole box of knives this weekend. What on earth is wrong with us that we are allowing this Zero & his clown posse to ruin our country & lives???
He ain’t gonna get my Buck knife ...
Cuba has cigars and Latina women. Sunshine. Thats the best choice.
If this comes to pass, then I guess I just lost my Colt Tailwind assisted-opening knife somewhere... ;-) Hmm, if folders are illegal, how 'bout a big old fixed-bladed knife then?
Not in the least surprising. The purpose of any government is to control its CITIZENS so that they can be subjected to the whims of the same bureaucrats and politicians who rob them of the fruits of their labors. The Obamination and his accomplices don't give a rat's ass about Iran and North Korea because they think that all governments consist (as they themselves do) of greedy selfish pompous arrogant elitists who live to control the lives of their citizens. The only thing that might interest them about Iran and North Korea is if somehow they can generate a phoney "crisis" to gain even more power over us, the citizens of the land of the formerly free.
Obama is just looking out for us.
They've already been taken out. And billboard political ads have to be approved by the party in power. (see WND's "where's the birth certificate" campaign)
You might also stock up on glass bottles.
Zero is the head of the pimple. The puss elevated him. The puss is what rules.
That ugly thing is an assault knife!
“how ‘bout a big old fixed-bladed knife then? “
UG! Sotomayor. I projectile vomit on your latina women
I can’t post my thoughts. They aren’t very nice. I am so sick of this man.
Yay, knife control...
From my cold dead hands!
I saw that Beck show with Mr.Sowell. It was chilling to hear him say that and I do agree with his tenor. Things are that bad. He is not a man who would say that lightly, as you know.
Just for good measure here’s a FUBO!!! for the usurper in chief.
I am so sick of this man.?????????
This asswipe ain’t no MAN.
He’s a muslim jerkoff of the first order. How Americans can
still fawn over this POS is beyond believeable.Why haven’t we regained our Patriotism like we had right after 9/11 and impeach this jerk and his tax cheats? No wonder Iran and NK
keep giving us the finger, we deserve it. How many fathers, mothers, uncles,and brothers have died so this prick can go
apologize for OUR arrogance?
That's why smart people always lose. They refrain from speaking up until there is no one left to speak up for them.
