Does anybody really take the time to understand the knife laws where they live?

Is a knife concealed if you can still see the pocket clip?

Anybody worry that their blades are too long ;-) ?

Every jurisdiction (down to County/Municipality level) may have its own laws.


Suggest you approach your local LE and ask them what they consider legal since they'll be the ones that take your knife off you if they think you've broken a law. Even it they're wrong - it'll be less grief than a legal challenge to recover your blade
I'm paranoid only cause everyone's out to get me!

LE make things up to suit the situation, their needs and their fishing. Forget them...

I have lived in several states since my retirement from LE and have learned that all the states I lived in have different laws that basically go unenforced unless you are detained/arrested for some other charge. i.e. If you are arrested fro DUI and have a large folder on your person that is just over the legal limit....Watch out!

^^^This is the voice of the uninformed. And with that attitude, you're likely to just get yourself unwanted extra attention and extra trouble in the event that you DO get stopped and/or detained.

The fact is that asking the local law enforcement in your area is THE best way to ascertain what is legal or not as it directly relates to you.

Have you ever tried doing just that? I have....and I've found the officers Ive asked extremely logical, practical, polite and honest.

If you consider asking them, you may want to drop the 'Screw you guys' attitude and conduct yourself with a modicum of sincerity, courtesy and tact. Their helpful responses may surprise you.

Thank you. Yes, I must change my evil ways to avoid LE radar.
