At the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting this year, knives are the new guns.
A growing movement recognizes that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms goes beyond guns, and also guarantees the right to have a knife.
The issue now has its own organization, which is participating in the NRA’s events in Indianapolis this weekend at the its 144th Annual Meeting. A number of NRA leaders have publicly expressed their support for Knife Rights, a growing organization promoting recognition and protection of the right to of law-abiding and peaceful Americans to carry knives as part of the right guaranteed by the Second Amendment “to keep and bear arms.”
Lead by its chairman, Doug Ritter, Knife Rights has been moving legislation at the state level recognizing and protecting the right of law-abiding Americans to carry knives. Laws protecting knife rights have already passed in a number of states, including Arizona, New Hampshire, Tennessee, and the NRA’s host state of Indiana.
