Are there any cops on ask if so read my question please.

what makes a butterfly knife illegal or and more deadly than a fixed or folding knife and why are they illegal to carry as well as brass knuckles?!? I would love you you to tell me why because it makes no since to me.

Someone called for a cop! Ok gravity, butterfly, and switch blade knives are illegal because they serve no useful purpose other than to do harm to others. Like a lot of other things, people used them as weapons repeatedly, more people complained, legislators passed laws against them! That is what happened to most things of the same use! When it gets right down to it I can hurt/kill you just as quick with the pen in my shirt pocket. I hope this helped

Since I was an auto mechanic for a period of my life. I found a knife which opened with one hand useful, and kept it in my tool cabinet. But I'm with you. They should not be carried around.

@tinydophi depends on geographic location. Some small counties might have a 40 mile drive to get to you.

Good point. Well no matter how long police response is, it's always better to have a good weapon to defend yourself.

Anything can be used to harm people. That's why we should carry weapons to defend ourselves.
Report as
I still do even though it will be 2 years since I retired this coming Monday!
Report as
Where'd you work? lol
Report as
what I meant was to harm people for no good reason, some people don't use the weapon the way it should be used like for defending yourself or maybe hunting.
Report as
I know but still, when there's a bad guy with a weapon, what do you do? You call the police, AKA the good guys with weapons. If every law-abiding citizen had a means to defend themselves, there would be less murder and less crime. Also, the police are just the clean-up crew. They're not there to protect us.

Why are you concerned with carrying weapons, when your spelling should be your priority? "" makes no since? "" is what you wrote.

Because laws have to be set so the crazies don't run around killing people, and there isn't any need for that stuff.

That's not a good answer because someone can kill someone with virtually anything...

Well it's my answer : ) and people don't generally less people get stabbed with pencils or punched in the jaw with iPhones. Just sayin'
Report as
**Generally don't get stabbed with pencils. See, told ya iPhones are dangerous!
Report as
Yeah, but you can kill someone with a pencil, a newspaper, an instrument, a chair, a hammer, a rope, your fists, a computer. Hell, you can kill someone with a staircase if you wanted to.
