Welcome Home

Measures that may be brought in later in the year mean that although we will be able to buy knives online they will need to be collected from the retailer personally?

Now I haven't bought a knife from Greg at TSA for a while mostly because I have been spending my money on straight razors. Also, the £ has dropped 20% since Brexit was announced which makes purchases from the States just too expensive with shipping and taxes.

This proposed legislation, however, means that I would have to travel to Detroit Lakes, so that Greg could check that I am over 18, and pick up my purchases in person. That could make the next GEC rather too much trouble, I guess that is the point!

Man jailed for carrying knife

"In this case it was a small lock knife but the size doesn’t matter. The message is clear - there is no need to carry a knife in Nottinghamshire and they are not welcome in our communities.

No judgement here, people live as they wish too.  I just think it is sad that in areas ,even here, the uses of this tool been forgotten

You are right Jan it is a great shame that people can only see knives as weapons.

It has been getting worse for a long time now.

I always had a pocket knife with me but now I have stopped carrying one unless, around the house, Jail doesn't appeal.

A lock knife is not legal to be carried no matter how long or how short the blade may be. I believe if you can show a good reason for carrying one you could be okay, I doubt that it would be possible to talk around your average policeman or Magistrates court..
