    Maine's legislature passed a bill allowing one armed people to own and carry switchblades with a blade of 3 inches or less. This matches Federal law (which I did not know) allowing their use on Federal property. Most states outlaw the possession of switchblades.

    Wonder why 3 inches is a magic number? Somebody pulls a 3 inch toothpick out and I'm going to laugh at them. Now one of these

    would get my attention.

    Why exactly are knives illegal?

    They should be under the same laws as guns.

    I keep a bayonet and a throwing knife for home protection.

    I have a couple of swords.

    Handy for slicing and dicing.

    Are knives illegal if you have 2 arms?
