Georgia Knife Rights Law Reform Bill Introduced
« on: January 27, 2017, 09:24:01 AM »
My EDKC (Every Day Knife Carry) is a Cold-Steel Kobun with a 5" blade that is carried weak side IWB. I find the length of the knife to be about the limit for me when carried IWB. Other knives are available to me and are primarily carried (or not) according to needs.

In Georgia, it is illegal to carry (but not possess) a "automatic" knife (e.g., switchblade or front-opening, spring assisted knife, or "Gravity" knife (Balisong).  I never had a need for one, but that doesn't mean that I don't know how to use them.

The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.
