Buck Concerned Re: Knife Rule

Item: Buck concerned about knife rule: Although proposed federal regulatory change doesn't affect Idaho company, firm's CEO says he's still nervous/William Spence, Lewiston Tribune

More Info: However, (C.J. Buck, president and CEO of Buck Knives said): "the thing that has me nervous is that the language Customs used to cast the net wide enough to capture these assisted-opening knives could be used to capture just about every folding knife made in the country. But the broader issue is that this is a kind of bureaucratic activism. Customs is bypassing the legislative process and implementing regulations that aren't what was originally intended."

Question: Does C.J. Buck have a legitimate concern re: the potential for "bureaucratic activism" by U.S. Customs?
