    Benchmade selling us out!!!

    Article:

    Benchmade Knife Company worked with the Oregon City Police Department to destroy firearms.

    In a social media post that has since been removed, the Oregon City Police wrote, “Thank you Benchmade Knife Company for assisting us today by cutting up guns that are ready to be destroyed.”

    The backlash against Benchmade’s willingness to cut up firearms was intense, and the Oregon City Police used a Facebook post to try to quell the public’s outrage:

    We understand some of our followers are upset with Benchmade knives because of a recent post we put out. The post did not give everyone the full story on why the guns were required to be destroyed.

    We receive guns that are turned in from community members that they no longer want the guns and want them destroyed. We also have guns that are evidence and when a case is adjudicated the guns are ordered by the court to be destroyed.

    These guns were required to be destroyed. We reached out to Benchmade to do us a favor at our request. Benchmade is a strong supporter of law enforcement and the Oregon City community. We were present when the guns were cut and we took them for final destruction.

    Firearms Policy Coalition (FPC) is requesting that the Oregon City Police turn over “records about the destruction of firearms” from July 1, 2018, to the present. FPC is also requesting the police department turn over “all records that are, relate, or refer to communications with, to, or from Benchmade” for the same period.

    Thanks,
    Figured Benchmade was too smart to NOT KNOW that after the guns are gone, then they're going to go after the knives
    Much appreciated info

    saw that yesterday. If it is actually as reported, then Benchmade has lost a long time customer.

    After the Benchmade debacle I figured I'd poke around on some of the other brands I had assumed were pro 2A.

    Damn! Surefire too huh?

    Team Wendy hosted HITLERY during her campaign. People made this whole "who saw that coming!" deal on NV forums. But when I talked with the team wendy reps at SHOT a few years before, they all seemed like liberal a-holes so I didn't bother based on that. Not a shock that they pee'ed themselves hosting hillary...

    We have to boycott all these d-bags that support the... D bags

    Bought my last NEW edged from them.
    I'll buy used but never new from them again.
    I'll buy from the ChiComm's first.

    when my nephew Pete was crew chief on Blackhawks in Afghanistan, his commanding officer wrote to Benchmade, wanting to buy some auto knives for the helicopter crews. Benchmade sent several dozen automatic knives free of charge, to help the troops.
