? Just asking....

Which post in "FIREARM LAWS: So Few Know How We Got Here" was out of bounds. Everyone is posting about firearms.

NOTE: I do not own any firearms, and corruption of the 2nd Amendment effects knife and firearm collectors.
You are not alone in wondering that. IMHO, it that thread was "politcal", then all of the Knife Rights threads are political.
100%, and please let's keep these discussions going. These are very serious issues for everyone globally. Laws passed in one country are often considered good examples to pass on to others in a second country.

As I said, I don't own any firearms, however I do own 85 knives and I carry those deemed legal in my state. It behooves everyone to read "Unintended Consequences" because of laws that erode our rights.

In the USA, the 2nd Amendment according to "DC vs Heller" are 2nd Amendment militia arms, and that includes 100% of Spyderco's knives. 100%! In the UK, they are considering confiscating kitchen knives, and you need an ID to buy one. We do not want that happening in the USA.
Your posts here regarding a thread that a mod has closed is walking right over the guidance that Kristi was trying to give in this thread.

I want to thank you again, Kristi and sal, for maintaining such a great forum where we can discuss the main topic: Spyderco knives and all that goes along with them, and, other topics in the off topic section that are very fascinating and which we can all learn alot from, in a respectful manner. Thank you!

Will be hard to avoid politics. It never sleeps and it affects our ability to own and use the knives of our choice. In some places we can challenge laws and get them changed. In others, not so much and things are getting worse. This is part of our collective reality. Discussing the issues contributes to our community, to our camaraderie. Glad to have y’all here!
Not a collector, but all these knives followed me home!
