“On September 16th Knife Rights participated in a lobby day on Capitol Hill, along with representatives of the American Knife and Tool Institute, the NRA and the Congressional Sportsmen Foundation.  Representing Knife Rights were Doug Ritter, Pete Brownell and Jason Kunkler (from While it was an exhausting, and at times frustrating, experience, it was clearly beneficial that House Committee and Member staff heard from us why it was so important to retain the Senate Amendment 1447 in the final Homeland Security Appropriations bill. I am confident that had we not made this effort, we might not succeed in the end.

As for that, we are all still waiting.  We remain cautiously optimistic, but it isn’t a done deal by any means.


The Upcoming Presidential Election and Your Knife Rights

There are reported to be over 100 million individuals across the Country who own, carry or collect knives today. Most of us enjoy this right without much thought as to it being a privilege provided to us under the United States Constitution. 

Folks who keep their fingers on the pulse of constitutional law say this upcoming Presidential election will in no uncertain terms threaten this often taken for granted right.

Doug Ritter, founder of Knife Rights (a knife rights advocacy group), one of the folks working on our behalf, is pounding the drum warning knife manufacturers, makers and owners of this impending infringement.

With the election only three weeks away, it is time, if you haven’t, to study this important issue.

Doug has addressed this issue in detail for us here.
