Way too many of us are just apathetic. We hear about the dumba$$ gun or knife grabs and figure that'd it'd "never happen here where I live". That's just those crazies in the "big city".

The multitude of groups that are out to completely disarm we citizens are slowly chipping away at the stone that is our Constitution from all angles. They know they need to pander to their base in the large urban areas first, and slowly spread from there. Inch at a time.

Every time there is an incident, the dogs begin baying for more control. Knowing all along that criminals by definition are people who don't obey the law anyway. And our idiots in charge fall in line. Such as the new policy regarding our military recruiters. Rather than allowing our soldiers and airmen to be armed, they're directed to run away, or hide behind movable partitions. Disgusting. Reason? We don't want to upset the soccer moms at the strip mall if they see a Marine wearing a sidearm. I guess the idea of seeing an armed member of our military is way to stressful for people to endure. Oh the humanity!

The gov't nannies want every aspect of our life to flow through them cause they know what's best.

If we don't take stand now and become more involved in what's happening "over there", it'll be happening in your town too soon enough. Do your homework and vote. Support those groups that fight for us and our Constitution.

I can say this... My father raised me to always carry a pocket knife. Not for self defense he actually always told me"if you pull that thing you better make sure ya know how to use it cause you'll look awful funny with it stuck up your ass"
I still carry at least one every day no matter what and feel rather naked when I enter places like an airport and am NOT ALLOWED to carry one. I read a bumper sticker once that read "if we outlaw guns only outlaws will have them" and that has stuck with me for years. It's true and will continue to be. The are plenty of laws in place making it illegal to Stab someone making more laws taking knives away will change nothing. I can not stress enough that if just one person on those flights during 9/11 has been carrying a knife maybe things would have gone differently.
I guess my opinions are just that.... MINE but I can tell you that the day a knife is outlawed will be the day that I to become one.

The liberals seem to have the misguided notion that you can change the ways of evil people by smothering them with laws. Fourteen laws against that already on the books? Just one more is all it will take to fix the problem. Sigh. Like Ron White has said so many times, "You just can't fix stupid".

Drug laws don't stop idiots from doing drugs. Gun laws don't stop criminals from shooting people. Knife laws don't stop the insane from attaching people. Reality doesn't stop liberals from passing laws that make no sense.

What we need are good men with guns, knives, and sense, not more laws.

Well, I'm not a liberal but all laws can't be painted with the same brush. The bunch in the White House are in the process of dismantling clean water and clean air laws. If fact Trump just signed bills to dismantle clean water and air regulations. So corporations will be able to pollute your water and coal producers don't have to produce clean coal, and will pollute are air we breath. That's not fake news! It's a fact.

Trump didn't dismantle any laws.He sign ed an executive order to override an Obama executive order.There is a place for politics and this ain't it.

^^^^The process has started.

This isn't political this is about what we drink and breath. Second this whole thread is political, about laws with knives.

If you read the first two posts in this thread you should see how the thread ended up in the General Knife Discussion. I can see why you would relate this thread to political views so maybe it should have been moved to the Political Discussion Forum but this where a Moderator moved it so here it shall stay.

As to your comments on clean water and air pollution, you make some valid points BUT this is a knife thread and as Roger (peanut740) opined, the comments do not belong here, they belong in the Political Discussion Forum. If you take exception to my post, that's fine but you need to take it up with one of the Moderators or Administrators. They have the final word on this kind of thing. Enjoy your day.

I spent 30 years in law enforcement and during that time personally saw 2, just two assaults with "pocket knives" (both were Buck 110s) but I also personally know of more than a dozen assaults and homicides involving plain old unregulated kitchen knives! Laws are only obeyed by the law abiding, criminals could care less what the law says. Obama was trying to regulate into a socialist state, Trump is trying to undo it! He put all sorts of regulations on the coal industry without having a viable alternative.

^^^The regulations imposed were to insure "clean air" in a industry that pollutes it. This administration is going back to, no regulations on water or air. When one can't even shower with the quality of water their receiving, let alone drinking it, then they will realize what has happened, of coarse it will be to late then. Corporations will pollute the water and air as they did in the early 1900"s. Wait and see.

Edit There are viable alturnatives to coal, the republicans in power wouldn't approve any of them.

Have mercy! Now I feel like I ought to go hug a tree or something.

Nah, on second thought I'll just go hack on one with my pocket knife while it's still legal.
