the way that code reads, one could carry fully exposed a fillet knife. hmmm, honest officer, I was heading to a store to buy the rest of the fishing equipment I need!!!!
:lol: But you could argue that a filet knife isn't designed for the "purpose of offense and defense". Therefore, you could conceal it.
There is something to that. A large chef's knife is designed for the purpose of chopping veggies, not zombies, so it might be OK. A good, stout walking stick makes a great defensive weapon, even against a knife, and is 100% legal anywhere in the state! Unless, it's a sword cane...
I picked up a really nicely made blackjack at a recent gun show for $10. I highly recommend them over expandable batons. You can hurt a person with an ASP baton; you can break his bones with a jack!
In addition, blackjacks are easy to carry and conceal, do a great
job adjusting bad attitudes and are cheap enough to toss in the bushes afterwards!
I'd really hate to drop an expensive baton down a storm sewer before the cops arrive, but could manage to part with a $10. item...
Be sure to get a blackjack, not a slapjack. Blackjacks are cylindrical, weighted at the business end and spring-loaded. Slapjacks are flat and were designed not
to do as much damage, so as to reduce complaints of police brutality. Then cops learned hitting with the edge worked almost as well...
