    We dont need it, though it would be prudent on our part to get it down in writing.....

    If a town has an ordinance and does not give you direct notice (billboard or other sign, verbal or written from official representitive public signage, use your imagination and a chance to stow your knife as a transported item, leave or not patronize them, ie; pass through, the state has it anyhow and the state has little restriction and does not consider most any pocket knife or sheath knife a weapon, in fact not a weapon unless 'used as such' and not an illegal weapon unless basically a dagger 'double edged non-folding, stabbing instrument.' Some other types balisong, gravity knife, etc. Not sure on the legis on those anymore.

    The catch is you are best to know your residential ordinance where you live.... thats where the pre-emption has the best appeal to me. They couldnt even motion to write it in the odd empty times at council. Otherwise dont patronize and simply dont live and pay taxes to restrictive local government franchises of which you become part while residing there.

    People get hung up on 3" or 3-1/2" and it is only a further increment of charged crime if used to unlawfully harm or kill someone or attempt to.

    Not an attorney, but absolutely trounced a city attorney in court where the law is concerned with carry of knives. We made him and his second man take three days to lose to the law.
