    Yes. Check out this thread for more info. Write letters to CBP and your congress members.

    The ridiculously limited period (30 days) for submitting comments has now expired. The Bureau of Customs and Border Protection IS going to pass this regulation. Their position on this is preconceived! The real answer to this is to write your Congressmen and Senators to try to ensure that their definition of a "switchblade" (assisted one handed opening) doesn't get propagated into "real" federal or state law.

    I never got that. So it opens for you. You open it, it opens itself. Once it's open, what'd the difference? They both slice and dice!
    I ain't what I otta be, I ain't what I wanta be, I ain't what I could be,

    But thank God, I ain't what I used to be,

    One reason I do not carry assist opening knives. Too many cops do not know the law. I just know I would get a good ole' boy that would call it a switchblade. So I go to court and win. I still have to pay a lawyer. This type of thing is one reason I carry a copy of certain gun laws in my truck. Knife laws tend to be vague unfortunately.

    This is not a problem in FL, even a regular old 'switchblade' is OK, if you have your CC permit.

    I love Florida CCW license. I actually found out by accident in a knife store that I can purchase them, then did my research. So needless to say I really love my state.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    I agree that the ruling was preordained and the rule will be issued. The "public comment period" was simply window dressing.

    Once the ruling is issued and published in the Federal Register, it's a done deal. It then becomes "real" federal law.


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    I saw this about a week ago. I believe it goes so far as to say that they want to make it illegal if you can open it with one hand...
