    Autos are not legal in PA. Neither are Bali-songs. However, assisted openers are just fine and dandy! I have a few buddies who are police officers and they tell me they are a big no no!

    Yes, they are legal to buy, sell and own, but not to carry. Too bad (and silly).

    It's illegal to carry any automatic knives or any double-edged knives in the state of PA. Especially Philly, what a nightmare.

    Its like this in FL as well but if you have a CCW in you can carry them. Not sure if PA is like that.

    I believe the only way you could have them is part of a collection. Not really sure on specs but it's easier to just avoid them here. I abandoned that dream long ago, but have found a happy home with Spyderco and their opening method :)
