Knife Rights (a large national knife advocacy group) are encouraging knife users to stand with gun owners in the current 2nd Amendment debate and contact legislators to ask them to oppose any new legislation which will further infringe the 2nd Amendment.

Personally I agree, having seen knife ownership being banned and demonized in my home country after guns were eliminated (from law abiding people's hands, not the hands of criminals), it seems the right thing to do is pull this waggon together. Numbers are important.

Mods: Sorry if this is too political for this forum, but in the light of everything this is a really important message to get out there. Remove my post if you feel it is inappropriate or if SYKCO does not wish to be part of this political discussion. I do think they would be fools not to as it might affect their business in the future and alienate potential customers.

Believe me, you don't want Danish conditions!
All I can EDC is a slipjoint under 2.8". And thumbstuds are banned. Only two handed opening is allowed.
It is a real pain to have to restrain yourself in such a degree. Plus we have to endure all the wrong interpretations of the cryptic knifelaws here by the lawenforcement.

Listen to this man, and it has only gotten worse there as time goes on.

Ironically violent crime is up quite a bit (unlike in the US where it is falling steadily along with more guns in law-abiding hands), and gun crime is roaring on like a freight train despite the near impossibility of legally owning any kind of firearm, including air rifles over a certain caliber.

As someone who lives in the UP of Michigan where guns and knives are almost a religion, I couldn't agree more. It's time we start watching out for our rights as law abiding citizens and tell the government to mind their own business. As Ben Franklin said, "He who would give up one ounce of freedom for a spot of safety deserves neither freedom nor safety".

Knife Rights is a good organisation and have done a lot for the US knife owners. I have spoken to Doug Ritter for advice when we had issues with upcoming law. Very helpful and supportive.

If I was a US citisen I would support them.
