It's not my house I was referring to. It's a friend's house that I was talking to as this thread was progressing
I have an idea. I've got a friend who lives about 10 minutes away from the school on foot who is willing to let me park my car there during the school day. I've also got a bike that can fit in my car. I'll just park there, ride the bike to school, ride it back to my car and go home. The school has no authority off school property. I could tell every single person in the school that I have a knife in my car and when called out for my car to be searched, I'll tell them the truth. They can't do $**T about it then. Nowhere does it say that I can't have a knife OFF of school property
That is not what you said. I'll quote it again:
You say you will go home after you get to your car at your friends house. Leave the knife at your home since you say you will go there after you get back to your car. You also say you will go to a movie if the cops try to search your car. A movie and your house are not where you work right? You have said over and over again that you have to go directly to work from school However, you have completely contradicted yourself in other posts. How are people supposed to help you if your story keeps changing?
I missed something as I was typing. I'm not going to work every single day. Working 5 days a week plus weekends would make for a whole lot of overtime. Some days, I would end up going home after school. Do you know a person who works 7 days a week at a single job that doesn't own the business?
I can't just drop out since I'm planning on going Coast Guard after high school and they want that diploma. I recently learned something cool about my car in specific though. With a bit of effort and a screwdriver, I can detach the inside panel and get to the area behind my brake lights. It wouldn't be able to ride there, but I keep my backpack in the trunk when I drive so when I'm grabbing it, drop the knife behind the light and slip it in my pocket after school. Maybe not the best idea but it could work
Wasn't it "clips on hips sink ships"?
Yikes. I'm going to say theres some overthinking going on here. Straight line. Use a knife from workplace.
Stick with the almighty SAK. Call it a day. The 3.25. In SAK Sentinel is a measly $25. Its one of those knives every knife aficionado should have. Instant good guy.
The responsible internet advice is this: If your school says no to knives, don't take the knives to school.
But do whatever you want...it's a free country...sorta...
I don't understand what advice you're seeking.
You know the laws governing the school you attend. If you chose to ignore/break those laws concerning knives, there is no one to blame but yourself. Why would you even consider a gamble that could affect your future ????
If you don't have time to swing by the house and get the tools you like to use for your job, then the most logical thing to do is to talk to your employer about furnishing a tool for your work or see if they have lockers of some sort to store your stuff in.
The key is to get your work done, not necessarily which tool you would like to do the job with.
It really is a common sense decision.
I do not need a knife for coast guard boot camp. I do however need one at work. And from what I've read, they issue a set of straight razors(utility knives) to you when you get there
That was really your takeaway from Jackknife's excellent (and on point) post? Ohhhhkay, then. Backing away now.
I think we'll be hearing about this kid on the news.
I can only say what I would do. I can't say this is the right or wrong thing, but it's what I would do. I would get my self a toolbag and put it in the trunk of the car. Then I world put some tools that you may (or may not) need during work. When you are at school be sure to put your *tool* (yes I mean knife) in the bag too. I can't see how you could get into trouble for carrying *tools* for work. After all you could do way more damage with a tire iron than a SAK.
I remember hearing a lawyer tell someone once. If you are going to keep a baseball bat in your car, do yourself a favor and put a baseball and glove in there with it.
Does anyone here keep a knife in their car or is it just me? I always have a Buck 119 special within my reach when I'm driving.
A kid who has admittedly stabbed his sister wants to get around the rule of having a knife at school but won't listen to even a bit of logical advice? What could go wrong......
Seems like someone who would go to such great lengths to get around rules is going to have an even more difficult time in the Coast Guard.
Ultimately, either in school or the USCG, rules are rules and authority is authority. You wanna risk breaking the rules and trying and get away with it, that's certainly your call.
But the reality is that nobody, at any age, gets to do whatever they want....particularly in the Armed Services.
