Gilbert AZ –-(Ammoland.com)- Knife Rights is pleased to announce that it has engaged the bipartisan government relations firm Capitol Hill Consulting Group (CHCG) to lobby in Washington, D.C. They will be working with Knife Rights' friends and allies in the capital to help pass Knife Rights' Knife Owners' Protection Act including repeal of the Federal Switchblade Act (KOPA – H.R. 84)
Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter said, “A few weeks ago Todd Rathner, our Director of Legislative Affairs, and I were in D.C. meeting with Members of Congress and others. Those meetings were as successful as we might have hoped and we are making significant progress.”
Ritter explained, “for all involved, there is a sense of urgency. Now is our best chance of getting rid of the archaic Federal Switchblade Act. It may well be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Nobody knows what the midterm elections will bring, so we really must plan to get it done in the next 15 months.”
Ritter concluded, “hiring CHCG gives us the edge we need to slice through the quagmire on Capitol Hill and finally repeal the absurd Federal Switchblade Act.”
D.C. lobbyists don't come cheap. This is going to be a real stretch for us. We need everyone's help now more than ever! There's only a few weeks left to donate in our our BIGGEST EVER Ultimate Steel fundraiser and Tail End Bonus. Please Donate TODAY!
