Customs Departments CBP Rule – Update

Customs Departments CBP Rule – Update

Washington, DC – -( We have been working closely with Representative Bob Latta (R-OH) and are pleased to announce that Reps. Latta and Walt Minnick (D-ID) have co-sponsored an amendment to the Department of Homeland Security appropriations bill to Restrict Funds to Implement the proposed CBP rule.

Our thanks to Reps. Latta and Minnick for taking a leadership role in this fight. This is just the first step in a complicated process, but it is important. We will post more information as soon as we get it.

As reported in an earlier News Slice, Congressional Sportsmen’s Caucus has urged U.S. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano to withdraw CBP Proposal. We have now posted the Congressional letter with 80 signatures here:

This is serious stuff- the majority of knives sold today fall into this new broader definition of a switchblade.
