Knife Info . . . Incorrect Information . . . Happy New Year
« on: December 31, 2013, 08:58:15 AM »
Handgunlaw.us has a document that only covers the carrying of ďFolding Type Knives.Ē http://www.handgunlaw.us/documents/USKnife.pdf   I have found another site that covers most of the laws for Knives in the different states. http://www.knifeup.com/knife-laws/  seems very good butI have not looked at the site extensively but it does give the alpha/numeric code and case law for the knife laws in most state. It is worth a look to those who wish to find out more about the knife laws in their state or where they are traveling. It also allows you to comment on each states listing.

I keep getting emails saying, ďHandgunlaw.us is wrong!Ē USA Carry or USCCA or NRA-ILA or USA Carry and the NRA-ILA or NRA-ILA and USCCA say Nevada honors Missouri or that VA honors MO or that PA Honors ID or that AR or MS donít honor CA or NY. These other groups are saying things different than Handgunlaw.us!!!!
www.handgunlaw.us is correct and up to date. I donít want people to think I am bashing those sites in any way but the fact is they are not up to date. They show states as still honoring another state which has dropped them and donít show all the states that honor some states. Not showing a state honors another state will not get someone arrested. Showing a state still honors another state when they donít can cause someone huge problems. I have contacted all those sites in the past about updating certain things and have never received a reply from any of them. Confirm everything you read on the internet.

Confirming can also be very difficult. Calling the AGís office or the State Police to check sounds all well and good but over the years I have seen countless examples of those offices giving out incorrect information. Thursday 12/19 an administrative assistance in the WV AGís office (My home state) put out incorrect info to a person who called them. The person in the AGís Office just didnít know and I believe that that person just looked at their AGís website listing and saw a state listed and told the person WV honored them. When in fact that listing showed that that state honored WV but that WV did not honor them. This person was given incorrect information that could have been very detrimental to him and his right to carry in the future.
Even the Missouri AG continued to list VA and NV as honoring them when both dropped Missouri until I contacted then and gave them the correct information. Then they removed them. 

Donít quit questioning anything I have on Handgunlaw.us if you believe it is in error. I am human and far from perfect and can make an error.  The vast majority of the time I am correct but there are instances where I have been incorrect or have left something out and I appreciate someone pointing that out. All the sites listed above and Handgunlaw.us has a disclaimer saying you must confirm that information. We have to do that because we are human and can make a mistake.

Handgunlaw.us hopes your Christmas was everything you were hoping for and that the New Year is everything you are expecting.

Thanks Gary.  Happy New Year!
Everyday I write the truth to who I am by what I do.
Life achieves its summit, when it does the uttermost what it was equipped to do.
It's always easier to shift the responsibility of one's existence, to lean on others rather than stand alone, but I refuse to place my destiny in another's hands.

Gary I for one will always politely question if I see something that seems incorrect but your work is really outstanding with Handgunlaw.us and I think I speak for many here when I say "Thank you!" for all the hard work, research, and effort you put into making it not only accurate, but timely.

Have a fantastic 2014!

It seems that knife laws are harder to define than gun laws.  At least, it seems so to me.
I remember being told by a city policeman in Muskogee, OK one fall that technically I was outside the law for having a sheath knife on my belt one day before hunting season began, and that I should remove it until the next day - about 12 hours or so later.
Same place, same knife, only difference was that one day it was not legal and the next day it was.
Then again, if the knife had been in a pocket, no one would even know about it, etc...


I've always liked knives, and had more than one collection over the years.  It seems I'm always buying them, using them for however long a time, then giving them away as gifts, only to replace them with new ones of a different sort.


I'm pretty sure my most recent acquisition (33" British Light Cavalry Sabre, 1796) would not be "legal" in any state for carry, OC or CC !   ;)
Never shall I fail my comrades. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong and morally straight, and I will shoulder more than my share of the task whatever it may be.  One hundred percent and then some.
