    That poster hasn't been here for five years now, he gave the impression that he was being oppressed but I doubt it very much. I also doubt he was in the UK to be honest but there you go. These days we have bigger things to worry about than knife or cannabis laws, trust me we really aren't that bothered.

    Yeah. Common sense and empathy should be part of police work. Or mabye not. It is definitely part of security work. Where you do consider whether enforcing the rules will hurt everyone and just make you look like an AHole.

    I had to decide whether i was going to physical a down syndrome kid for breaking stuff.

    Nobody was going to win from that.

    It only has to be "worn in plain site" and since concealment means not seen or not visible, it is very hard to prove you intended to conceal something if it is hanging on your back or strapped outside of your pants on the ankle or what have you... but mileage varies from county to county.
    In my experience it only has to be visible from one side unlike the long gone open carry laws which required the gun to be visible from 3 sides.

    In CA, A folding knife of any kind can be concealed depending on the county...some restrict length like LA county and some don't like San Diego. The only thing that can get you jammed up here with folders is that it needs to be biased towards staying closed or it can be considered a switch blade. Spring assist does not apply because of its biased towards staying locked but a knife where the blade screw has been loosened so you can open it with the flick of the wrist could be considered by law enforcement to be a switchblade.
    Now is Mexico(yeah I know, who cares right) all knives are illegal but you can carry a multi tool in a pouch on the belt.

    I think you're confusing switchblade (which is commonly defined as a folding knife that opens automatically when a button is pushed) and a gravity knife.
