Wow, it's time to blast away at the panic button. Time to run wild in the street, tearing the hair out of your head and screaming at the top of your berserk lungs about the sinister plans that Obama has for god-fearing, gun-toting, patriotic, white Americans (this scene would make for a funny video).
Maybe all those knives will be melted down to cast the 100 foot statue of Lenin in Washington.

Default CD Bureau of Misinformation strikes out again.

They are proposing the revocation of four previous rulings on the regulation, not changing the regulation. And it is U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Department of Homeland Security that is proposing it, not the prez. Good try, though.

http://www.akti.org/PDFS/U.S.CustomsProposedRuling.pdf (broken link)

ACTION: Notice of proposed revocation of four ruling letters and revocation
of treatment relating to the admissibility of certain knives
with spring-assisted opening mechanisms.

....It is now CBPs position that knives incorporating
spring- and release-assisted opening mechanisms are prohibited
from entry into the United States pursuant to the Switchblade Knife
Act, 15 U.S.C. 12411245.

This reminds me of the various scenes when the kid says he wants a BB gun for Christmas:

As a life long knife collector I have avoided all knives opened with any
sort of a spring. Be they "switchblades" or "assisted opening" it's all done
by a spring which makes them all one in the same.

I'm suprized it took so long for the feds to catch up to "assisted openers"
since all that is missing on them is a button to push to release the blade.

I own a couple of assisted opening knives that the dealer had a special
run made of with NO springs to keep them legal. These knives are just
as sweet and fast as those with springs while the laws can't say they
are illegal. Besides, who needs a darn spring to break just when you
really need that blade!
