2nd Amendment Supporters Outraged After Benchmade Helps Police Destroy Guns

People are vowing to throw away their Benchmade knives, pointing fingers and calling for boycotts of the brand following a seemingly innocuous Facebook post made by the Oregon City Police.

The police department Oregon City, Ore., where Benchmade is based, went to Benchmade asking for help in the legal destruction of seized firearms. Benchmade assisted.

For context, the way police departments deal with guns in their possession varies. In Ohio, law enforcement destroys seized guns. In Kentucky, by law, the police department is required to sell them. For the Oregon City department, however, selling guns in possession is off the table; they’re required by law to destroy them.

Afterward, the police gave thanks to Benchmade in a Facebook post. And then the internet got ahold of it.
