    AKTI to DC, Pledges

    9/8/09 … The U.S. House of Representatives is back in session. And AKTI and the entire sporting knife industry has a job to complete.

    AKTI’s goal is to get House adoption of Senate amendment 1447 to the Homeland Security Appropriations Bill (H.R. 2892). This amendment would add a fifth exemption to the Federal Switchblade Act at Section 1244 that would exempt any folding knife with a bias toward closure from being declared a switchblade.

    Please help us … If you have a business in, sell products in, live in, or plan to vacation in, or hunt or fish in … WI, CA, NC, KY, TX, IL, NY, MI. We need you to send a letter (and also fax it) to key committee chairs and ranking members from the above states.

    We identify them on the AKTI website (www.akti.org) and make it easy with links to addresses and fax numbers. On the homepage, you will find a list of key Congressmen with addresses and fax numbers. You will also find … Company letter to House Member or Individual Letter to House Member … that you should personalize, sign, then both fax and mail.

    Please do this today so lawmakers and staffers have these letters when AKTI goes to Washington, D.C. on September 16. Goldie Russell, AKTI President and Jan Billeb, Executive Director will be there with David Kowalski, AKTI Communications Coordinator and our D.C. lobbyists and allies.

    If you have not yet made a pledge to help AKTI win this fight, please call or email me today. If you have not yet paid your pledge, please mail it today because this is a very expensive effort.

    Make out checks to … AKTI.

    Mail to …
