City refuses to change local law to comply with state law allowing concealed carry of knives

This is dumb. People hear "switchblade" and it conjures fanciful images of 1950's New York street gangs. Assist knives are already legal and just as fast as autos or faster. I have non-assist knives that are faster than autos.

"Built to be lethal weapons..."? This is not even necessarily true. Stilettos, which is the mental image everyone is afraid of lets face it, have always been a novelty. They are cheaply made and not especially dangerous compared to your average pocket knife.

Much more dangerous is a perfectly legal fixed blade knife. Where is the fear and outcry against fixed blade knives? I pull the knife out and *the blade is already deployed*! And it's much sturdier than a folding knife or a switchblade!

Auto knives are only more dangerous in your mind.
