    Does anyone know why brass knuckles have the screw pin on the side?

    That makes them (technically) a "belt buckle" and not an illegal weapon like they are in many areas.... like North Carolina (wimps).

    and when you end up in a court of law with an illegal deadly weapon calling it a paperweight isnt going to carry much water when its obviously a set knucks.

    you can paint daisies on a landmine and screw in some bolts to the side and call it a piece of "yard art" but its still a landmine.

    Brass knuckles are still legal (to a degree) in Mississippi. Hell, butterfly knives are still legal, here.
    I used to have a bras knuckle, as a kid, but I have long since lost it. Really wish I still had it.

    I see those a lot at gas stations. Sure, you put them next to the rolling papers and herbal spices, but no ones goin to use them for weed *sarcasm*
    I honestly don't think I've ever heard of anyone using them for tobacco...

    Crack pipes are sold in some gas stations. They have a small fake flower inside, and they're called something like "romantic flower" or some crap.

    They're a glass tube with a vented bulb on the end where the "blossom" is, with the stem extending through the tube.

    Here's a pic I pulled off google. Whenever I find these, if I have the money, I buy all in stock and crush them. Not because I have a problem with drug use, I'm a firm believer in letting people poison themselves to death slowly if that's what they wanna do with their bodies, but because these are available to children. And because they have this damn flower inside (easily removable with a pair of tweezers), they're totally legal, I think in all 50 states.

    I work in a gas station, and the stuff we sell has veeeery obvious uses. Most of which arent legal. I sell white owls and swishers all day. Apples are a big seller too. I remember when they used to sell the OTC pseudo. That got stopped by the feds eventually. Back to the original topic, my knuckles were bought as a belt buckle. Btw, they are terrible belt buckles.

    Crackheads used to come to our auto parts store where I worked. Buying metal tire pressure gauges. They had magnets they would use to check them.

    We started to sell them the metal encased plastic enteral ones. They quit coming. Lmao

    Possibly because they can be concealed easier than a six inch pocket knife. But I would rather have a knife.

    One last comment. Im not against private ownership of knucks knives or crack pipes. Im just saying be careful with it cuz your local da may hate you if your a ccw type and he is a libtard and you hit his radar.
