In Virginia, carrying a gun in the trunk does not fall under the hidden concern because it is not easily accessible for use. You can carry in your trunk anything that is primarily legal for you. I know it`s a year, so this guy doesn`t care anymore, but someone could do it. In Texas, there are two different types of knives, which differ in blade length: a simple «knife» or a «site-restricted knife.» A knife that has a blade of 51/2 inches or less is considered the regular term «knife». A «site-restricted knife» is a knife whose blade measures more than 5 1/2 inches. When it comes to legality, people in Texas can own, carry, and buy the following types of knives: star-throwing or any type of throwing knife; Dirks, daggers, stiletto heels and other stabbing knives; Bowie knives, swords or spears; switchable knives; pocket knife; and Balisong (butterfly knife). With regard to illegal knives, «restricted knives» should not be owned or carried by persons within the state. Virginia`s knife laws are long and quite verbose, so it`s almost impossible to determine what`s legal and what`s not when it comes to owning and carrying knives in the state of Virginia. This article summarizes the law in easy-to-understand language so that everyone can say what is legal and what is not. It is very interesting. It is very sad to read the trials and realize that we are at the mercy of a de facto judicial system with ignorant and/or simply criminal judges and prosecutors, defense lawyers and all the other «members of the Bar Association.» If something is «legal,» then it should be LEGAL. The Virginia State Knife Act imposes few restrictions on non-automatic pocket knives with a foldable metal blade less than three inches long. Concealed wearing restrictions apply to «Dirks», «Switchblade Knives» and «Bowie Knives».
I appreciate the comments of John Bradley, ESQ, but I don`t know if this answers my question below, I`m sorry to be a mistake about it, but my legal expertise is basically zero, except for the UCMJ, that I was quite good years ago when I had collateral duty as a Legal Yeoman when I was in the Navy, and unfortunately, there is no civilian version of Section 134 Catch-All that contains what I know. When did it become legal to openly own or wear the «Switchblade» in Virginia? I had no idea. I still see laws that say it is illegal. I just want to be sure because people still can`t sell them here, as far as I know. I am not trying to repeat a question. When pit bulls are endemic, is it legal to carry a samurai sword on your back to protect yourself from a pit bull attack? I will never own a firearm. A 10-year-old child was able to secretly carry a song from Bali. The law does not state that Balisongs/butterfly knives are illegal to carry. Hey, I`m a HUGE fan of CS:GO and I`m going to buy a Karambit. and I don`t know if it`s legal to open the port or not? Must not be injured.
The only gun law that you need to remember. (yes, this includes all knives OF ANY TYPE and LENGTH) In Ohio, it is legal to own any type of knife. Instead of basing their laws on the length of knives, they base their laws on what is considered a «lethal weapon.» By definition, a lethal weapon in that state is «any instrument, device or thing capable of inflicting death and designed or specially adapted for use as a weapon or possessed, carried or used as a weapon.» In this state, people are allowed to own and carry the following types of knives: circuit blades or gravity counters; Balisong (butterfly knife) or Balisong trainer; ballistic knives, dirks, daggers or other knife knives; Bowie knives; and stiletto heels. There is only one type of restriction on secret carrying in the state: any knife considered a «dangerous weapon» cannot be hidden. This law makes it illegal to hide dangerous knives, which may include all the knives listed above. SUMMARY AS IT WENT: (all summaries)Carry a Switchblade knife; Exception. Allow any person to carry a concealed Switchblade knife if such a knife is carried for the purpose of carrying out a legal profession or leisure activity, the exercise of which is assisted by the use of a Switchblade knife. The bill removes switching blade knives from the list of weapons whose sale, barter, gift or supply constitutes a Class 4 offence. This invoice is identical to HB 1432. Lifting the ban will not create a free switching blade for everyone. Knives continue to be listed as weapons that Virginians cannot carry in public. «It`s good for the knife industry,» Martin said.
