State law, in Arizona, now permits anyone 21 or older and legally qualified to own a firearm to carry the weapon without a concealed-to-carry permit.
That's all well and good, but what about the rest of us, sword-owners?
Would you believe that some of the very same laws that allow unrestricted concealed carry of certain weapons in Arizona, including (and especially) firearms, do not cover a knife which blade is longer than 3.5 inches?
3.5 inches ?!? You've got to be kidding me!
I would have you know, sir, that the Second Amendment speaks of "the right of the people to keep and bear arms" ("arms" - not just "firearms".)
And IMHO the minimum legal age ought to be 18, not 21. I mean if 18 is old enough to go to war, I say, 18 is old enough to carry a sword, right?
Anyone hears anything about a Pro-Carry Sword Group lobbying the government on the issue?
