Benchmade Knife Company has received a ton of flack on the Internet lately.
Second Amendment Daily reports that after the knife company was helping local police destroy firearms, gun owners gave the company a piece of their mind.
This news went viral when the Oregon City Police Department released a series of Facebook photos depicting a shotgun and an SKS being chopped into pieces.
The police department’s post read, “Thank you Benchmade Knife Company for assisting us today by cutting up guns that are ready to be destroyed.”
Uproar from social media and gun forums forced the Oregon City Police Department to quickly take down the post.
Oregon City Police Department attempted to do damage control in light of this outrage with a follow-up post:
Benchmade then tried to rationalize their decision to help destroy firearms in a post of their own:
“Benchmade is aware of the recent post from our local Oregon City Police Department.
We apologize for the confusion and concern that this post created. These were firearms that the Oregon City Police Department had to destroy in alignment with their policies. Oregon City Police requested the use of specialty equipment within the Benchmade facility to follow these requirements, and as a supporting partner of our local police force, we obliged the request.
Benchmade is a proud and unwavering supporter of both law enforcement and Second Amendment rights. These are commitments that we do not take lightly and will continue to support well into the future.
When asked for clarity from Oregon City Police Department, Chief Jim Band made the following statement: “When property is to be destroyed, it is the policy of the Oregon City Police Department to destroy property, including firearms, in accordance to our procedures and ORS. The Oregon City Police Department does not sell firearms.”
However, the rabbit hole goes deeper….
A report from OpenSecrets.org shows that Benchmade has been donating to anti-gun Democrats in recent elections.
The most notable recipient of Benchmade contributions was U.S. Congressman Kurt Schrader (D-OR). Schrader is currently one of the co-sponsors of H.R. 8, this year’s Universal Background Check bill, a bill that is at the top of Nancy Pelosi’s wish list.
Oregon is one of the recent gun control battleground states. The state took a sharp anti-gun direction in 2017 by passing red flag gun confiscation orders. However, Oregon gun owners made their presence felt in 2018 by keeping “assault weapons” and high-capacity magazines bans from going on the ballot, while also approving Second Amendment Preservation Ordinances in eight counties.
Benchmade’s gun control gaffe is just the latest trend of corporate virtue signaling in favor of gun control. However, these moves have proven to be detrimental for Dick’s Sporting Goods, as reports showed a decrease in sales for the outdoor company.
We can expect the same for Benchmade’s sales after this gun control incident.
Hitting anti-gun companies’ wallets is how Second Amendment supporters can keep corporate gun control at bay.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.
Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.
The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.
Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.
Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
