    Perusing Facebook today when I found this post from the Oregon City Police Department.

    I'm on my phone so I'm not gonna re-upload the pics, but you get the idea.

    WTF is right. You just killed the joy I feel about buying one of their nice skinning knives recently.
    WTH is wrong with them....I just sent them an email suggesting they cut the shite - Who knows the story behind these guns - Let the PO find another way, no shortage of destruction methods...

    LOL! Looks like the fallout was enough to get the PD to pull the post off Facebook!

    I wouldn't think that destroying guns for the PD falls within your wheelhouse, but I guess I'm wrong. You must be taking strategic business advise from Dick's Sporting Goods.

    I won't be buying your products any longer.

    Benchmade facebook page is pretty entertaining right now.

    I'd like to see a gun company take in Benchmade knives and melt them down. HE HE HE

    Yep. I think they may realize they just alienated a good majority of their customer base.

    You gotta be shittin' me. You think Benchmade leadership was all "we f'n hate guns, lets ask around and find some to cut up" because that is what the response here so far looks like.

    Personally, I see it a different way. These guns had their death warrants signed already. Someone was going to permanently render them chunks of metal. Only question was who and how. You wouldn't want a piece of the action? Not like anything was going to save them.

    Bunch of over emotional day ladies above.
