I just registered for the publice servant account and looking forward to ordereing. I know this might sound ignorant of me but as a federal leo I am not up to speed on the knife laws in California, is it legal for an leo to carry auto opening knives (penal code, please)? If so, can they carry only on duty or can they carry off duty as well. I would love to add one as a last ditch weapon. Thanks.
Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.
