The American Knife & Tool Institute (www.AKTI.org) announces that it is preparing to publish and distribute the “AKTI State of the Industry” report. The report in 2007 proved to be instrumental in explaining the impact the industry has on American jobs and the economy to decision-makers.
AKTI is disappointed that the Boston City Council passed the ordinance requiring convenience stores that sell knives be licensed by the City.
“Telling legislators who are sportsmen that knives should not be restricted is easy,” noted CJ Buck, “They already understand what a valuable tool a knife is to the activities they enjoy.”
AKTI is opposed to proposed Boston ordinance as a violation of the Euqal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constituion.
AKTI issues Call to Action to oppose Boston City Council proposal to license knife retailers.
