DON'T BE “THAT GUY” IN HAND­CUFFS: KNOW THE LO­CAL KNIFE LAW

Knives Illustrated - - Points Of Interest -

In­for­ma­tion on knife laws in the U.S., in­clud­ing those of a num­ber of cities, can be found on Knife Rights’ Le­gal­blade app at: Le­gal­blade.org. How­ever, be­cause there are thou­sands of lo­cal knife reg­u­la­tions, it is im­pos­si­ble to list them all. In most cases, if you want to know lo­cal knife re­stric­tions and bans, you will need to dig them out your­self. Rit­ter said, “In our ex­pe­ri­ence, law en­force­ment per­son­nel are gen­er­ally not a re­li­able source for ac­cu­rate in­for­ma­tion on knife laws. You would want to in­quire at the of­fice of the District At­tor­ney or equiv­a­lent, for the ju­ris­dic­tion. Ask them to pro­vide the ac­tual lan­guage of the pro­hi­bi­tion or re­stric­tion. Or, look on­line.”
