No, probably not.
Imagine what they would do if they saw how effective 3 soda cans in a pillow case can be.
We won't need them to cook in the future when we will just stand in line for our daily gubment approved rations.
Or our Soylent Green.
I was told yesterday by one person that my crkt hissatsu is not a big knife, it's a small sword. Another guy said I could go in a tiger's cage with it.........

They are just accustomed to seeing with a SAK and a couple of paperclips, so it seemed out of character.
I'm not going to lie, part of the reason I bought my utx-70 was to laugh at people when they say it's a dangerous weapon and then talk about how cute it is in baby/puppy/kitten-speak.
This isn't a camera trick. The thing is TINY.
And such a positive feel in and out.
I wish I could legally carry that knife in my state... I'm not a switchblade fan, but that knife is just so compact and light. Another member compared it to a pack of gum.
Yeah. Freedom is pretty cool.
The sad thing about then being illegal so many places is that they're really not good fighting/killing blades as far as I can tell. Stabbing and hitting something hard could easily knock the blade of its track. Slashing isn't any better or worse than any other blade it's size. And it's slower and weaker than something like a wave or a fixed blade.
Really, the only advantage they have is that they're insanely convenient...dead simple to open one handed and easy to retract the blade and safely hold the handle one handed without an exposed edge while you do something else.
I like it because I set it down a lot less in daily use. I think the entire rain they're illegal a lot of places I'd that the loud click is intimidating.
It's the drawback to making policy - too narrow, it's effectively useless. Too broad, it's too restrictive.
The trick is to find a fine line where nobody is happy.
Unless you're in Pulaski county you should be able to...
(Pulaski county as well as soon as Atty.Gen. Rutledge releases her opinion officially)
See Act 746, Section 2, AR code 5-73-120.
Of course, IANAL...
The problem is the policy makers. Murder is illegal, assault is illegal, what does it matter if you use a kitchen knife, a hammer or an auto, you are breaking the same laws. It is a false sense of security that it gives the unknowing when they ban certain things, plus it gives the policymakers a chance to say look we did something.... not matter how utterly useless that something is.
Well, there's also the goal of keeping things out of the hands of idiots.
I've known a good number of people who find out that butterfly knives are legal and wind up having their fingers sewn up a few hours later because the YouTube video they choose didn't tell you to make sure you grab the correct wing so you only shan the spine into your fingers. Or, worse yet, they get a double edged one and don't think about the techniques that don't work.
Seriously, I've seen the bandages like 5 or 6 times.
I don't think those stitches are worth me not being able to buy one if I want, but I'd imagine some of the desire for these stupid laws just comes from protecting stupid people.
As far as otf autos, I just don't get it.
If they were to make laws that protected all the stupid thing people did, we would be able to leave the one level house with no doors no electricity and no running water.
Isn't that what living in Britain is like?
Someone else posted a similar meme lately; but I couldn't find it to credit them...
You know who you are.
The problem is when an otherwise brilliant person is clueless or thoughtless about something dangerous.
Half of those butterfly "victims" were getting masters degrees.
There are only fifteen states where autos are banned outright. It's worth double checking the laws where you are. The biggest gotcha is very few states preempt knife laws and you have to also check city and county ordinances...
A degree means you can learn from a book. One scar from a Balisong means you can learn from trial, error and your mistakes, Mulitiple scars in the same spot from a Balisong means you should stick to books.
Of course I am not discounting the smarts of educated people. There is just a lot of stuff we learn from experience as well, I have never used a Balisong and I am sure I would have the scar of learning from playing with one as well.
Actually, they are not technically illegal where I live. Theoretically, a prosecutor would have to prove intent to "unlawfully employ ... against a person." However, they are commonly considered to be illegal by law enforcement.
