Switchblades are rather an odd issue.  In Texas possession is a quite a serious offense.  In Iowa they have tons of them at every gun show from cheap to very spendy german switchblades.  I dont think that the blade design lends itself to being useful for much other than a letter opener on most of them.  I find a Swiss Army knife to be a much more practical tool so I dont think I'd miss them.   Besides if you want an edged weapon I'm thinking Tomahawk and fixed blade knives with full tang or a Japanese sword.

I agree in principle Wes. I argue that, there are no reasons for the banning of such weapons though. It's a step in the incrementalists chain for the absolute abolishment of any non cooking utensil. And when the time comes that all others are gone, they'll go after those as well. That's just how whacky these fools are. Hell they'll outlaw pointed sticks if given the chance to do so.

This is not true switch blades, but redefining what is a switch blade.  Sorta like making every semi-auto nfa by changing the definition.  This is not just stuff that is spring loaded, but stuff that has a thumb nub too.

I still believe they are after them for the fact that they can be opened with one hand. It makes cutting those zip tie restraints easier, and they don't want that available as an option for when they come to confiscate your firearms.
