Gilbert, AZ --(Ammoland.com)- It started with an inflammatory article by James Oliphant in the National Journal, “Inside the Knife Rights Movement.”

The tone is set by the sub-head, “Having gained so much ground in easing gun restrictions, conservatives now want to roll back limits on knives, which can be just as lethal.”

Our favorite phrase from the article showing Oliphant’s clearly prejudiced and irrational viewpoint: “a push to legalize deadly blades.”

Breitbart columnist AWR Hawkins then turned the virulent anti-knife bias of the National Journal article on its head with a positive spin on Knife Rights’ progress, “Gun Rights Victories Spur Action from Knife Rights Advocates.”

Hawkins followed this up with an interview and another Breitbart article, “Knife Control Based on Same ‘Irrational Premise’ as Gun Control.”

The article concludes with this quote from Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter;

“It all comes back to the irrational premise that the possessor of a mere object, just by possessing it, is certain to do violence to another person.”

Then just this week A. Barton Hinkle picked up the story and wrote about “The Case for Knife Rights – Big government overreach claims a new class of victims” on Reason.com. Hinkle examines the irrational restrictions and how they impact honest citizens who just want to carry a common tool, their pocket knife.  Read the full article at: http://reason.com/archives/2014/04/07/the-case-for-knife-rights
