Video Transcription

Carrying and using knives can carry serious criminal penalties. Let me explain; if you have a carry conceal permit you can carry a knife, but what kind of knife. The laws are different all throughout the United States and Federal. Automatic knives are not permitted in many States. Knives like this knife, is not considered automatic, but it’s not a gravity knife, and there are different laws that are involved.

If a knife is used during the commission of a crime, a knife is considered a deadly weapon. Very often the laws regarding knives are very similar to the laws involving firearms. It’s essentially that if you’re charged with possession of a concealed weapon, a knife, or a knife that is not permitted under your local laws, that you have an attorney. A criminal defense attorney who understand the laws regarding knives. They’re much more severe than most people realize.
