Do You Know Your State’s Knife Carry Laws?


Knife Carry Laws

A good knife can be one of your best friends – a trusty tool to help with countless projects as well a handy self-defense weapon if things go south.

However, the laws about what type, and size, knife you can legally carry varies by state – and to make things even more complicated – can also vary by city and county. Staying up-to-date on the latest government attempts to regulate our lives can be a full-time job!

Since I have a severe addiction to buying most every knife I see (is being a knife-aholic an actual thing?) and I also have a distaste of going to jail, I frequently consult my favorite resource to stay current with the knife carry regulations where I live – Knife Up. They’ve got a great, interactive map that allows you to drill quickly down to your locale and determine exactly what you can legally carry.

If you appreciate what we do here at Prepping News, please take a moment to share this with your friends and family. Thank you!
