    Knives are arms protected by the Second Amendment. In American history, knives have been banned as often, perhaps more so, than firearms have.The concealed carry of knives have been banned, along with firearms. The possession and carry of knives have been regularily banned and forbidden by the states. In Montana, Constitutional carry for knives was achieved on 21 April, 2017.Montana law treated knives with a blade of more than 4 inches the same as firearms in their concealed carry statute. It is legal to carry concealed weapons in most of Montana, without a permit, except inside city limits.  The...

    This should come as a warning to anybody who Antifa sees as a threat to their Communist, anarchist, violence-driven message.ANTIFA Leftist Group Is Selling Concealed Knives On Their Website For Slicing ConservativesFollowing the recent violent mobilization of Antifa in Berkeley, the domestic terror organization has begun to embrace violence as part of its message. There is a visible evil to the entity and sadly it is comprised of young Americans who have adopted a violent, Marxist mentality.

    Before heading out on a trek, hunters need to ask themselves a simple question: How many knives do I really need? When it comes to hunting knives, what do you really need? The question is straightforward, but the answer can become complicated by thoughts of what you want, rather than what you actually need. Personally, I own dozens of knives. They are great tools, and serve a range of purposes. But when I go afield, I keep it simple. On all the hunts I’ve been fortunate to embark upon around the world, I almost always take only one knife afield....

    When asked by ABC News what he feared the most about the incoming Trump administration, former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich said it was that “they would lose their nerve.” […] “Look, they’re going to arrive in Washington, and for them to be successful, they have to stake out positions that Donna [Brazile] will not like and the Left will hate,” Gingrich explained. “And my deepest concern is they’re going to arrive and you’re going to have the Greens going crazy over the EPA [Environmental Protection Agency] and Interior [Department]. You’re going to have the government employees going crazy about...

    In response to questions from AARP Bulletin, Hillary Clinton made clear her position that to be successful, policies for ending terrorism must include gun control for all Americans. AARP Bulletin asked, “What would you do to address terrorism?” Clinton responded: Well, these are legitimate fears. I believe that people are rightly concerned about violence. Terrorism is part of that violence, and we have to do the best job we can to keep America safe. So I’ve laid out a very comprehensive plan about taking on the terrorists, going after them where they operate, doing everything we can to take away...

    About 16 years ago, a close friend was involved in some dangerous affairs in far lands.  Because of the legal climate, firearms were out of the question.  I gave him a pair of Cold Steel Bushman knives.  They were inexpensive enough that confiscation or loss was not a great financial burden; they were big enough, tough enough, and versatile enough to be useful.  Or, so I thought.I have maintained contact with my friend, and he has had adventures that make the hair rise on the back of my neck.  He has come through it all intact, gained a wife...

    I like Cold Steel knives.  I own, have owned, and have given away quite a few of them.  I have even lost a couple in fairly extraordinary circumstances.  They have served me well.  About 15 years ago, I settled on the Cold Steel Voyager XL.  It is a good sized pocket knife with a blade about 5.25 inches long. I used it, among other things, as a sort of “worry beads”, manipulating it, opening and closing it with one hand, trying different angles and grips, and essentially, getting to know the blade rather intimately.  Over the years, changes have...

    With a world on edge after the coordinated terror attacks in Paris, and as criticism grows louder of the Obama administration’s handling of adversaries such as Iran and Syria, tough talk and defiance have become strong currencies in the presidential race. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson’s mild-mannered, soft-spoken demeanor – which helped endear him to many voters in the first place – now appears to be working against him, while Sen. Ted Cruz’s tell-it-like-it-is, in-your-face style is now raising his stock. In the crucial state of Iowa, which holds closely-watched caucuses, the event in Paris on Nov. 13 changed many conservatives’...

    Once overshadowed by the hot-button gun rights debate, laws restricting knife sales and possession are the new "second front" in the battle to preserve Second Amendment rights. The issue has gained more attention in recent years -- most recently in Baltimore, where obscure knife laws have surfaced at the center of the Freddie Gray death case. Well before that case, though, the nonprofit advocacy group Knife Rights has been steadily working in state capitals across the country to roll back or repeal longstanding knife bans and restrictions.

    e Connecticut Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the acquittal of a former Army medic who was sentenced to 15 months in prison for transporting a knife and police baton in his vehicle during a move out of state. Justices issued a 7-0 decision in the appeal of former Clinton resident Jason DeCiccio. The court said part of the state law on illegal possession of weapons in a motor vehicle violates the Second Amendment because it bans people from transporting weapons between residences when they have the right to possess those weapons in their homes.
