Its as if Trump wrote the decision, take a phrase out of context and try and shame the author. The phrasing that Benitez used is very common. "<some product> is the Swiss army knife of <some category>". This phraseology is ubiquitous in modern discourse and everyone knows the reference. For the left to latch on to this one phrase is a huge mistake. Even the most addle minded will see through that.

Benitez was in no way wrong with his analogy.

Author Tackles 63 Survival Tasks Using Swiss Army Knife

BTW: Immler has an YouTube Channel with 120,000 subscribers.

Survival instructors such as Ron Hood and Les Stroud have touted the Swiss Army Knife as a 'survival' tool. The point is that what they and Benitez highlight is the aspect of versatility in a 'single' package when it comes to survival. As he said in the opening lines of the decision...

Quote:
Like the Swiss Army Knife, the popular AR-15 rifle is a perfect combination of home defense weapon and homeland defense equipment. Good for both home and battle, the AR-15 is the kind of versatile gun that lies...
But, that's where the Left and the media are now hung up. They never got beyond the first 1 1/2 lines of the decision. Why? Because they can't find fault with Benitez's argument, they simply disagree with it.

The Loonie Left can not accept the message that AR15’s are in common use, like a pocket knife when they have been trying to paint a picture that they are Evil. The Loonie Lefts entire message / agenda is crumbling because the “ common “ people are learning to fight back vs just cry about it.

I think many of them haven't actually read the ruling and are just quoting each other at this point.

Who cares what the left says, the analogy is appropriate....unless you have the mentality of a twelve year old.

We better be careful here, California might just create laws banning Swiss Army Knives!
After all it had ARMY on it so its gotta be Militaristic!

Quote:
Is carrying a Swiss knife illegal?
This includes a “pocketknife” or “Swiss army knife,” box cutter, or “utility knife.” According to California Penal Code Section 17235, all folding knives are legal in the state and may be concealed as long as they are in the folded position.

So ... a open Swiss army knife would be considered illegal.
Democrats must really hate the Swiss.....they are the proof its not the Guns that create Violence but Culture, or lack of Culture creates Violence!
Yes, SBR are available to average Swiss Citizens as are full auto AR15s.

Quote:
Switzerland thus has a relatively high gun ownership rate.

The 2017 report from Small Arms Survey has estimated that the number of civilian-held firearms in Switzerland is of 2.332 million, which given a population of 8.4 million corresponds to a gun ownership of around 27.6 guns per 100 residents.[14][15] Other estimates place the number of privately held firearms upwards to 3.400 million, giving the nation an estimate of 41.2 guns per 100 people. The International Crime Victims Survey conducted in 2004-05 reported that approximately 28% of all households in Switzerland owned guns, giving Switzerland the second-highest percentage of firearm ownership in Europe.

Point is we are closest to over turning the ban then we have been last 32 Years, this is what we needed to get it to the Supreme Court. Debbie Doubters will always be Debbie Doubters, I prefer to see the Light at the End of the Tunnel.

I wonder if someone will make a rail mount for an actual Swiss Army knife?
Multi purpose bayonet anyone? I vote corkscrew every time.
