    first off, Thanks for the info MLH!

    Real facts and actual information is infinetely more useful than comments like:

    "It is true that the messiah has this on his agenda. How ridiculous."
    and
    "they are Socialist, Scumbag, Liberal, worthless, Charismatic, good-for nothin', life-sucking, parasitic, low-life, Communist Nazis"
    and
    "what a retard tats most of my knives"

    However, I am not to worried about this. Such a proposal would only be supported by extreme liberals. It is true that Democrats have a majority in both houses and the white house, however it is not true that extreme liberals hold such majorities.

    There are many Democrats in both the house and the senate who were elected to fairly conservative, traditionally republican districts. These "blue dog" democrats know they would quickly be voted out of office if they supported such rediculous measures.

    Also, the president has shown many times that while he may be more liberal than most of us, he tends to shy away from decision that alienate the majority of Americans (think Mexican assault weapon fiasco)

    Therefore, while it is always a good idea to let your congressional representative know what you are thinking, I won't be loosing any sleep over this one.

    U.S. Customs is proposing this to the legislature. They make the decision so it could very well become law. Unfortunately, they are allowing very limited comment period, and are trying to ram it through the legislative process, typical of what we have seen of this legislature.

    I doubt many senators and reps read this blog, so if you are concerned about this I suggest using your energy to send rational concerns to your congressmen, copying Mr. Russell, per his request. Noting the number of requests sent to Congress will help AKTI head this off before it gains momentum.

    Seriously,

    The customs agency does not have the power to enforce this ban anywhere except border crossings.

    Does anyone have any evidence at all that Congress, or the president, or the justice department or anyone else who actually has the authority to enforce the ban has any interest in it?

    Like I said before, this looks like everyone is getting all worked up simply for the sake of getting all worked up.

    There are plenty or REAL reasons to get worked up, we don't need any more IMAGINARY ones.

    lets look at it people. he might as well ban all knives. i mean, u can pull a fixed blade out of its sheath with one hand, you can pull a steak knife out on a drawer with one hand, and most knive have slits or stubs on the side for easier opening. so if this passes im ruinined! ill be arrested for owning all of the knives i already do.

    hunterkid makes a good point I understand that you all are probably upset but either way dividing our country like this and calling the president a nazi does no good but make us look like idiots who'd rather argue with each other then focus on real problems.

    BTW, I don't hate B. Hussein Obama. I just despise his politics and what he stands for - the demise of our nation as we know it.

    I hate to inject some rational thought into this frenzy of reactionary paranoia, but here I go.

    First off, according to the post from MLH, its the customs department that "wants" to ban them. What authority does customs have to ban anything? They could block the import or export of such knives I guess but, police in the interior of the country enforce laws, not policies made by someone in the customs department.

    Secondly, everyone is getting all bent out of shape over how Obama wants to do this. Is there even one shred of evidence that he supports this "policy"? I know everyone thinks he supports this policy, but everyone would probably also believe a post that says he eats orphan babies for breakfast.

    I don't know why so many people feel the need to come up with imaginary reasons to hate this man when dozens of really good ACTUAL reasons to hate him.

    If this is true, would it really surprise anyone? After all, it is common knowledge that liberal politicians are of exceptional "practical sense". Why would anyone want a knife that you could make such easy use of with just one hand? It is simply too efficient for government to reconcile, they must go!

    My guess is the only truth to this story would be the knife industry hoping for a little panic selling.

    It is true that the messiah has this on his agenda. How ridiculous. My ex-father in law had a serious stroke and left his right arm useless. Ten years ago I bought him a Gerber knife that could be opened one handed. I guess folks like him are out of luck.
    People, if simple things like this are being attacked why can we expect our guns and hunting privileges safe?

    Utility knives also, kind of need those for work. Not like any banned knives would be a good one. Just wonder where Barrack gets his wool, it must be pretty thick and long seems how he covered a lot of peoples eyes with it.
