Arizona's concealed carry laws also allows and covers carrying knives. Now that is a sensible law.
I have been told that Mississippi is the same way. I don't know for sure though, haven't checked it myself.

Yeah Mississippi has some pretty convoluted restrictive concealed knife laws. Be glad you live in Louisiana. Only knife laws there involve "switchblades". And that only applies to fully automatic knives.

What did somebody forget to engage their safety and shoot the dogs front teeth out? Or are we blaming that on the Glock shooters?

People seem to think a Balisong is illegal though. Amazing.

I know there used to be laws regarding dirks and daggers, but my cop buddy (head code enforcement officer, so he has a better grasp on state and local statutes than most other cops) said the exact same thing you just did. I believe his exact words were, "if you use a button or lever, it's a no-go. Spring ASSISTED is fine as long as you actually have to manipulate the blade."

Are you not allowed to carry them concealed. Why would you want to open carry a knife. Don't take this the wrong way it would not be allowed here unless you needed it for work or hunting. If you walked down the street with one you would be arrested. but if I did most people would think I had lost the plot after they stopped laughing. Must be different in America.

Basic laws on knives

It is illegal to:
Carry a knife in public without good reason - unless it’s a knife with a folding blade 3 inches long (7.62 cm) or less, eg a Swiss Army knife
carry, buy or sell any type of banned knife (the list of banned knives is below)
use any knife in a threatening way (even a legal knife, such as a Swiss Army knife)


Lock knives (knives with blades that can be locked when unfolded) are not folding knives, and are illegal to carry in public.

I still can't imagine why you insist so often that we have to be just like you guys. We kicked y'all's butts out once already.

Bwahaaaaa! Easy Trip,, our friends over the water woke up AFTER being disarmed. I think many wished they had fought for their rights in hindsight. Just contrasts our mentality I guess........

I am not saying that that you must be like us guys. Just seems strange why someone would want to open carry a knife. I say it must be an American thing because no one I know has any desire to carry a knife and feels safe walking down the street unarmed. Is crime or fear of crime that bad in America.

Means nothing to me I wasn't around then were you. Anyway there were plenty from here that helped helped you kick buts as well as the French and Mel Gibson . Maybe you need a few history lessons I will try and help.

Scotch-Irish (or Scots-Irish) Americans are the descendants of Presbyterian and other Protestant dissenters from the Irish province of Ulster who migrated to North America during the 18th and 19th century Most of the Scotch-Irish were descended from Scottish and English families who colonized Ireland during the Plantation of Ulster in the 17th century. While an estimated 36 million Americans (12% of the total population) reported Irish ancestry in 2006, and 6 million (2% of the population) reported Scottish ancestry, an additional 5.4 million (1.8% of the population) identified more specifically with Scotch-Irish ancestry. People in Great Britain or Ireland that are of a similar ancestry usually refer to themselves as Ulster Scots, with the term Scotch-Irish used only in North America.

Well aren't you just the smart one. For your info, I already know history pretty well, especially my own personal history. Father's side were Anglo Saxon invaders of the British isles, mother's side is Welsh, unknown how far back they go or where they mat have come from before that.

Why are you always trying to compare America to England and trying to make it sounds like this is such a terrible place? Aren't you the one who said that your police would be gunned down with automatic weapons if they were identified as police? Yet you take our culture to been that we must be such an overly violent people that we're all paranoid and afraid of being caught in an act of violence everytime we step outside?

I was told my Florida CWP covers knives, including autos. I don't see why it wouldn't.
