You could be arrested for having a knife!

Have I got your attention?
Customs is tiring to stop us from enjoying not only assisted opening knives, but all folding knives. What happens in these cases is that once they shut down the imports, then they go after the carry laws for everyday people, like all of us. They want knives banned in the USA.
Your help is needed to stop this action.
Please read and fill out these forms in the link that Spark has posted. This is just about the only way we will beat this issue. It will take a grass roots effort along with organizational lobbyists and lawyers.
In addition, a letter was sent out from AKTI.
Please read the AKTI talking point before you fill out the forms. It is imperative that we stay calm and use the right wording when we address this issue.
We are in the sporting industry.

This effort will cost an estimated $500,000.00.
Yes ----- that is a half a million dollars. Just to address a time extension for us to have long enough to answer the Customs filing, it will be about $100,000.00. Then the attorneys will have to go and fight tooth and nail to show cause and address this issue with cases that are on the books.
AKTI needs your donations of any amount to offset our rights to carry knives. Please donate what you can. Time is of the essence here.
They have about 10 days answer the customs filing.
This means they need all the loot that we can afford to give them.
I have to say one thing to you. If at anytime in your life you are really needed for a fight for your freedom, this is one. Our freedoms are slowly being taken everyday. WE MUST STOP THIS. They are trying to bulldoze our industry into the ground and they do not care who it effects.
All Knives will then be like switchblades.
Freedom is not free anymore. We have to fight to keep it.
Here is the link to donate. Please help!
http://www.akti.org/
https://p5.secure.hostingprod.com/@w...sl/donate.html
Please fill out forms from every organization. We stand as a group. The more we send the more it helps. Make sure to read the talking points.
Send to your congressman, customs, and every other person that they say will help the cause. Have your children and spouse help by filing.


If you have thoughts on how we can win this war, POST IT!
