Hi. Years ago I asked the officer who was renewing my LTC if I would get busted for an automatic knife if I was found to be carrying it which is illegal in my state (not illegal to own, but only to carry). The officer replied: "Well, no self respecting police officer that I know, in seeing that you can legally carry semi-automatic pistols, would bust you if they discovered that you were carrying an auto knife. However, if you had just committed a crime and that was found on you, then that would be added to the charge to be sure!" What do people think? Now, my smarter brain prevails and I do not carry an auto just in case but of course, I would like to! It'll certainly be resolved when I can retire in a few and move to a free state, but I hope you don't mind the question. Thank you for your time!
