My mother is in a nursing home in MD and my father spends the summers on the Chesapeake bay. When visiting either of them, which I do frequently, I always carry a lock-blade knife and have a large Maglite in every vehicle.

As you can imagine the MD constabulary frown upon any transgression of the state's "no carry" policies and vehemently enforce these laws. Any violation is a felony offense and not helpful in any way, whatsoever!
I had never thought about some states not allowing people to carry a firearm. I made this just to see what people would come up with and now I see this is a real question!

In my state, I can open carry with no permit, but have to have a permit to conceal.

So far, I haven't gotten my permit. Pretty much don't need it. In my area, no one thinks twice about a gun (but you'd probably get, "what's that for?" If you were carrying a hammer). plus, with the hours I work, and not being allowed to carry as terms of my employment, I only really spend about an hour and a half to two hours per day strapped in public.

I guess the bigger question is why would I not carry a gun????
But to answer your question. A couple of frags would do. Preferably M26A1's.
I have no idea what a 'edc' is. But I do know what a PPD is.

Same thing I carried in NJ for 50 years.

Rage, attitude, & persistence.

You would be amazed how easy it is to

quickly fabricate a makeshift weapon,

in most environments.


BUT, if you have that look in your eyes,

most people are going to take one look,

and shaleem you alone...

I am old enough to get away with this.

When I was a 17 I carried a machete in my car. I needed it.

In reality, I don't carry a handgun yet, but I never feel unprotected due to my ( self preservation/ survival) way keeping many tools on my person. Any tool can become a weapon and all weapons are tools.

To seriously answer the question, I would carry a knife. Depending on the circumstance, either a fixed blade with a 4 -4 1/2 inch blade, like my Benchmade Nimravus Cub, or a stout folding knife with a 3 - 3 1/2 inch blade.

If knives were illegal, I'd carry the closest thing I could to a jo, the short (48-50 inch) staff, such as a walking stick or cane.

When I fly, and have to leave everything behind, I carry a sturdy metal ball point pen, like a Cross. Better than nothing.

I have Many Canes and walking sticks because i've had a Broken Back(3 Facet joints, 4 Transverse processes, one fusion & one Bullet) for 30 years, as well as a bad ankle. I take one with me everywhere. I also have hiking sticks for off street movement...but I always carry at least one Knife/Tool, usually two, my multi-tool and whatever pocket knife i choose. If i'm wearing Belted Pants I'll carry a "hunting" knife as well..
