New Hampshire –-(Ammoland.com)- Abe Foote of Abe’s Awesome Armaments in New Hampton, NH, who was an unfairly prosecuted victim of New Hampshire’s former restrictions on switchblade sales, was reunited on Wednesday with some of the knives the police had seized.

Unfortunately, approximately one third of the knives seized by the police remain unaccounted for, having disappeared from the evidence room.

It's easy to stomp on the rights of an individual and lie on all the paperwork, because nobody who hasn't had… Read more »


So basically many, if not all of the officers now have their own nifty switchblades. Or perhaps one or a small number who "liberated" them from the evidence room have been selling them. Police corruption… is anyone actually surprised?

Great that Abe got most of his inventory back… perhaps the officers in question would be willing to actually *pay* Abe for the missing merchandise. Will be interesting to see what, if anything, comes of this investigation.
