Knives Illegal by Customs & Border Patrol Office

The CBP is trying to make Hand Assisted Folding knives illegal! nutnfancy’s Video link: www.youtube.com US Senate Website: www.senate.gov US House Website: www.house.gov US Customs and Border Protection Office, Attn: International Trade Regulations and Rulings, Mint Annex, 799 9th Street, NW Washington, DC 20229// Attn: Intellectual Property and Restricted Merchandise Branch// Form Letter to email or write: Dear (Your Senator /Congressman), • Millions of good people across the country use folding knives for duty, utility tasks, outdoors activities, emergency services, rescue operations, and for legal defensive purposes. The Office of US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is however seeking to change that and turn these good people into criminals. • CBP is revoking earlier rulings that assisted opening knives (that require manual manipulation to deploy!) are NOT switchblades. Since many courts and legislative bodies rely upon these CBP knife definitions, this revised ruling will have broad and unintended consequences. It promise to affect all knives too, not just imports. • With this re-definition, most folding knives will be interpreted as illegal despite the smokescreen of disinformation that CBP is dispensing over this issue. It will create unneeded bureaucracy, more unenforceable laws that will burden peace officers, have devastating effects upon thousands of jobs, and in the end it will only LESSEN not increase PUBLIC SAFETY. • Knives are already highly regulated

HEY, DUMBASS THE BORDER PATROL HAS NO CONTROL OVER MAKING LAWS, ESPECIALLY LAWS REGARDING THE FEATURES THAT A KNIFE HAS. YOU MIGHT WANT TO GET YOUR STORY TOGETHER BEFORE YOU PUT THIS CRAP ON YOUTUBE. YOU ARE RIDICULOUS. OH AND BY THE WAY DONT SAY THAT THE BORDER PATROL IS NOT DOING THEIR JOB. WITHOUT THE BORDER PATROL I WOULDNT EVEN WANT TO LIVE IN THIS COUNTY. THINK ABOUT THAT IF THE BORDR PATROL SHUT DOWN EVEN FOR A WEEK, WHERE YOU WOULD BE!!!!!!

@musicfreak8580 it depends… I think that every knife is legal to own but not carry…

blowupuate13 @ 5:29 am #

Ok is this supposed to be some kind of gang control thing?!?!? If it is does any gang follow the law? This is such bullshit! Damn liberals

nzullo @ 5:43 am #

Correct me if I’m wrong but I’m pretty sure those knives were not assisted. Assisted knives are spring loaded so as soon as you begin to deploy the knife it snaps open. You had to completely follow through with both examples.

hey guys fuck the drug dealers/smugglers lets go bust the guys who carry pocket knives!!!!!!!!!!! -.- this is why the USA is not my favorite country.

I live in Michigan and double edged blades are illegal unless camping or hunting or misc outdoor activities.

Btw sootch. Tactical defender has been good to me especially with my last order. I have my Endura and I LOVE it. Saving up for a different knife now.

If a bill ever passes to bann guns or knives. I’ll break the law, I’m not a criminal; the government will be.

Where I work doesn’t permit carrying knives but I do anyway. People ask me “OMG! Is that a knife? Why do you have that!”

TheMotorick @ 6:30 am #

I can get a permit to carry a concealed handgun, but can’t get a permit to carry an automatic knife here in Georgia. Stupidity. WTH does how fast you can open a knife have to do with whether it should be legal or not? If we want to crack down on gang violence, I’m sure there’s a better way than making idiotic laws like that.

sasuke199415 @ 6:38 am #

im with u on that

pgrinavic @ 7:23 am #

i live in nh and last year daggers and stiletto syle knives were made legal to own and carry

qcking666 @ 7:26 am #

@sootch00 For someone like you, its only for Home security against ALLLL the terrorists in this world, with you shotgun and pistol with enough ammo to start a war

85wifebeater @ 8:02 am #

Fuck the law! Carry anyway!

cheesealtar @ 8:46 am #

musicfreak8580 @ 9:28 am #

KABAR!!! this may sound stupid but is that legal to own? because I would love to own one but I’m not sure what the current law is towords the limitations of owning a knife?

stangcobra03 @ 10:22 am #

professorNIKKI @ 11:16 am #

@knivesaretools it is a USMC ka-bar (kay-bar) military knife, usualy around $80, sharp on one side and usualy about an inch and a half on the other at the tip. what i think is one of the best knives ever made:)

darthbilly97 @ 11:51 am #

nnice knifes!!!!

mrblisterfist @ 12:12 pm #

Customs and Border Patrol confiscated my wife’s dildo.
They claimed it was a “dangerous weapon” due to the length.
The U.S. has gone crazy!!!!!!!!!!!

lpryby00 @ 12:51 pm #

What I don’t understand us why people feel the need to come on here and argue the point of the video and talk crap about others comments, if u don’t care about the subject, go somewhere else, people need better hobbies, good video, old, but good

knivesaretools @ 1:47 pm #

what is the bayonet behind your left ear (on the right side of his head beside its sheath) thanks for any help im looking to find out because i have one and know nothing about it.

wikingnederland @ 1:56 pm #

first of all stone axe head was the first weapon and it you wanna argue about it a wooden spear by no means a knife….

i love the comment son here one idiot wrote “will be writing my senator and congressmen” idiot, sure he can never have enough toilet paper.

AskACholaTV @ 2:19 pm #

Preach on! I will be writing my senator and congressmen. We can’t let them take away our hand assisted folding knives!!! Well, once these go we might as well go back to switch blades and butterfly knives. US government: stop meddling in our affairs and killing activities!

MrTheomar144 @ 2:46 pm #

are stilleto switchblades illegal in indiana?

DrShakalu619 @ 3:14 pm #

Same as here, there are so many more seriou things like drugs and asylum seekers coming into Australia but they pick on and make a big deal about things that cost time and money that doesnt effect anyone
