U.S. Customs looks to redefine what constitutes a switchblade. Executive Director Doug Ritter speaks by phone with Cam Edwards about a proposed ruling that could be interpreted as outlawing most pocketknives. He says that the issue is starting to gain prominence, thanks in part to support from the NRA, and that his organization currently needs help adding a rider to the 2010 Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act which would prohibit Customs from spending taxpayers' money on this initiative.
