US ATTEMPTS TO RE-DEFINE SWITCHBLADES

The knife people have been pissing everyone off with thier scare tactics. It would NOT make most pocket knives illegal.
The ONLY thing this would do is reclassify certain knives as switchblades which would then make them NON IMPORTABLE. Customs Service has absolutely no authority to make decisions on anything that does not cross the international border.

Actually, Tom Gresham on GunTalk had a good observation about this. Customs is actually the only agency that has defined switchblades at the federal level. As such, many local jurisdictions base their interpretation of what a switchblade is based on Customs' interpretation. This could trickle down to local levels. Maybe not, but maybe it could. Seriously, the knives they are talking about are not a danger to society and there is no reason to even consider this IMO.
