Do State and Federal knife laws apply soilders?
Was discussing general weapons stuff with a few locals at a local eatery the other day and this came up. One of the young men showed us his new automatic knife, fully automatic, not just assisted and said it was legal for him to carry because he was active military. The knife he carried was one where all you did was push a button and the blade came out on its own force. Think switchblade. We have a military base nearby so it is common to see them in restaurants and stores in uniform.
When I questioned him about it asking if he could point me to some documentation to back him up he just said it was common practice.
Anyone know the law on active duty military being exempt from State knife laws? He is a good kid and I would hate to see him get in trouble.
