    Angry Next big gun rights battle will be about KNIVES

    Next big gun rights battle may be over knives



    ...Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. has declared war on pocket knives. We are not talking about switchblades or butterfly knives, gravity knives, daggers or stilettos, but the kind of one-hand-opening pocket knives that have become popular with the majority of shooters, hunters, and other outdoorsmen and women. According to Doug Ritter, executive director of KnifeRights.org, about 80 percent of knife sales today involve this kind of knife...

    We are speaking about knives from Buck, Kershaw, Columbia River Knife & Tool, Benchmade, Spyderco, Cold Steel, Gerber and enough other brands to make this an assault on industry as well as private citizens.

    While McDonald took all the headlins on 6-28-10, SCOTUS issued a few remaining orders the following day, 6-29-10. One of them was to remand this case back to the 2nd circuit for further consideration in light of McDonald. This of course is the case over possession of nunchacku. Sotomayor, siting on the 2nd Circuit at the time of this case was first heard there, famously signed onto the opinion that since the 2nd had not been incorporated against the states (at that time), the controlling law was in Slaughterhouse, Cruishank , Presser and Miller v Texas. Sototmayor properly recused herself from hearing this case at SCOTUS. It will be most interesting to see how the 2nd Circuit rules on this case, as that ruling will have more influence over the course of 2nd Amendment law in that district and some sway in others than will any attorneys general opinion and wants.

    Been a while since I read the decision, but I do believe that Heller did in fact speak favorably, even if breifly, to arms others than firearms.
