Knife Rights Leading Ivory Ban Knife Community Coalition Letter Effort
Knife Organizations are Encouraged to Sign onto Letter Opposing Administration's Ivory Ban
On April 4, 2014, a coalition letter was sent to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Daniel Ashe from 31 organizations representing a wide variety of impacted communities opposed to this ban. The purpose of this letter was to put the Administration, the Fish and Wildlife Service and the House Appropriations Committee, as well as Members of Congress, on notice that this ivory ban will adversely affect a large number of Americans. Knife Rights was honored to be joined on the letter by the Custom Knife Collectors Association, the National Knife Collectors Association, the Professional Knifemakers Association and The Knifemakers' Guild, as well as the industry's American Knife & Tool Institute. You can read this letter here: http://www.kniferights.org/Ivory_Coa...ter_4.4.14.pdf
The next step in our strategy to oppose the Administration's ivory ban is for each of the various impacted communities to present U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service with their own letter, which can be more specific. Knife Rights, as a founding member of the coalition opposing the ivory ban, has drafted a knife-centric letter for the many knife community organizations and companies to sign onto.
Time is not on our side. This endorsement MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN APRIL 14, 2014.
