Your Knife Rights

Knife rights refer to the rights of the individual to legally buy, use, carry, collect, possess and otherwise have knives. There are two organizations leading the fight to protect your rights in this area: Knife Rights and the American Knife & Tool Institute. Both have been extremely proactive and effective in working to have legislation passed to protect your knife rights. Other individuals and entities also have played important roles in this area. Anyone who can write letters and emails or place phone calls to their respective legislators can make a difference in legislation that can protect everyone’s right to legally buy, use, carry and possess knives.
