I have been made aware that US Customs and Border Protection is pushing a change that will make ALL assisted opening knives considered to be switchblades and thus illegal to have. I am not sure of to much of the information on it but wanted to see if anyone on here had more information and to provide a link to a website with lots of info and the address to write to the CBP and comment. They only are allowing for a 30 day comment period (ending June 21) so not much time left. Thanks!

The U.S. Government would never do something like this.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not.

Half of me would like to say "haha told you so" to all of the anti-gun knife collectors/builders out there that I have argued with over the years, but that wouldn't be very productive or helpful or nice...so I shall listen to the other half that suggests I try to stop this from happening.

Maybe, maybe not but I do not like the trend of going after guns and then maybe showing a little interest in knives. Next thing you know they will be attempting crap like overseas where you can not even have a bladed weapon to defend yourself.

I've been wondering why they have been going after auto-knives in the first place? Has there been a recent crime wave that I haven't heard about or has someone been watching west side story again?
