      •  And of course, the NRA came out and (0+ / 0-)

        supported knife rights, as well, recently, and kniferights dot org (no I won't link) includes this in one of their statements:

        What is most gratifying is that 50% of the members are opting to upgrade their membership to a higher level. Over 90% of the members also belong to the NRA, which is about what we expected. 50% of our members own more than 6 knives.mbers own more than 6 knives. [bolding mine]
        And on the topic, from Mother Jones:
        Its [knife rights] chief lobbyist sits on the National Rifle Association's board of directors, and its website is strewn with overheated endorsements from the likes of Ted Nugent ("God Bless Knife Rights!") and NRA executive vice president Wayne LaPierre. [insert mine]
        Rust never sleeps.

          2. There is no such thing as "a semi automatic assault rifle!!!"

          Do you know how to defend yourself against a knife attack?
