Straight Talk from The Gunny on Our Knife Rights

Straight Talk from The Gunny on Our Knife Rights

Gilbert, AZ –-( I can’t think of a more fundamentally useful, basic tool in existence today than a good quality knife.

Invented and used by primitive man, it is one of the few tools from the Stone Age that is still in use today.

A good knife is a must have in any emergency survival kit worth it’s salt. No one in their right mind would go camping, hunting or fishing without a good sharp blade or two on his belt and in his pocket. How would we clean or trim our nails?

If there were ever a law passed restricting our use or ownership of knives, I would not obey it. Restricting the rights of Americans to carry and utilize knives would rank right up there on the dumb scale with restricting the use of other tools such as hammers and wrenches.

I would like to know who the Alfred E. Neuman think-a likes are who come up with these ridiculous ideas. Whoever they are, we do need to keep sharp objects out of THEIR reach.

I whole-heartedly endorse the work of Knife Rights and support their mission. I detest the fact that such an organization is even necessary in the United States of America.

Through the years I might be have morphed into a “disgusting fatbody” aka “Gomer Pyle” in FMJ, but I’d still be proud to call this good American my friend any day.
