    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency is proposing a new definition that could be used to eliminate 8 of 10 legal pocketknives in the United States right now, according to activists who are gearing up to fight the plan.

    The federal bureaucracy is accepting comments – written only – that must be received by June 21 before its planned changes could become final, but Doug Ritter of KnifeRights.org, said the implications of the decision would be far-reaching, since many state and federal agencies depend on the agency's definitions to determine what is legal in the United States.

    A successful campaign to change the definition would mean thousands would be out of work in the knife industry, and the impact would have far-reaching effects.

    For example, if someone would be caught with a newly-illegal "pocketknife," would the resulting charges be structured to allege that person was dangerous or had an illegal weapon, and how would that change the defendant's right to own a firearm, he wondered.

    "If this law were to pass and you cross the state line with a folder (pocketknife) in your pocket, it would be a federal felony," he said.

    It is outrageous that a "rule/definition change could have such an impact without even a voice from our elected representatives.

    Yes these sorts of ridiculous usurpations occur on a rather basis. It's one thing if they are the result of elected representatives. It's entirely different when this occurs outside of the realm of a legislature or congress. But that is what generally happens.

    Most of the things that affect you on a day-to-day basis are the result of "acts and agency". Regulations from government entities which are not directly answerable to the people. We see this all the time. And it is indeed insidious.


    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
