Overview

Today, more and more law-abiding citizens are carrying knives as part of their daily complement of gear. Knowing whether the knife you carry is legal to carry or even possess is both difficult and critically important, because carrying a prohibited knife can result in hefty fines, jail time, or both, along with a misdemeanor or felony criminal record that may haunt (and hinder) you for the rest of your life.

Knife Laws of the Fifty States was written to help the law-abiding traveler and knife owner better understand the differing restrictions on knife carry that each state imposes on those within its borders. The carry restrictions for different types of knives under each state's law, off-limits areas for knife carry, blade length restrictions, and carry mode restrictions are discussed, with excerpts of relevant state laws and selected case law citations also provided. Perhaps just as important, an analysis and discussion of knife restrictions for selected cities and towns in each state is included. Major cities covered include New York City, Boston, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Atlanta and Las Vegas, to name a few.

Written in a concise and easy to read format, this informative and extensively researched book will help you, the law-abiding traveler and knife owner, gain a greater understanding of the complexities of knife regulation in our great Nation. If you carry a knife, Knife Laws of the Fifty States belongs on your bookshelf!

    Caution - Out of date at the very least

    There are 3 states that I have more than a passing knowledge of when it comes to knife / gun laws. Today I checked current information on government sites for those 3 states to validate my concerns after reviewing a borrowed copy of this book. This book contains incorrect information for all 3 of the states that I checked, all of which would clearly lead to multiple violations. In most cases this is due to changes in the law since this book was printed, but in my home state I question the correctness of this material at the time it was published. 1 star because most of the generic information is useful even though it is available in many other places, and because 0 stars is not an option since this book is supposed to be a legal guide for travelers. I fail to see the value of a reference that suggests in its "How to use" instructions that you do some research in advance of your trip to insure what you read in the reference material is correct and up to date.
