While I don't doubt it happens I have a hard time believing it's legal for them to search cars without consent of the owner.
Sounds like a good solution, except for the bolded part. Keeping your mouth shut about things that other people have no need to know about is a good lesson to learn early.I have an idea. I've got a friend who lives about 10 minutes away from the school on foot who is willing to let me park my car there during the school day. I've also got a bike that can fit in my car. I'll just park there, ride the bike to school, ride it back to my car and go home. The school has no authority off school property. I could tell every single person in the school that I have a knife in my car and when called out for my car to be searched, I'll tell them the truth. They can't do $**T about it then. Nowhere does it say that I can't have a knife OFF of school property
Wasn't it "clips on hips sink ships"?I can remember bringing Buck 110's, and Bali-Songs to school back in the day. Nobody cared. If you got caught with one the teachers always said "put it away before I take it". Honestly kid......just leave it at work in a safe spot. Not worth getting into serious trouble at school.
Edit: I wouldn't say ANYTHING to ANYONE about carrying knives for work, or whatever at the school. Loose lips sink ships, and all that......
Seriously, just park off campus and keep it in your car. I parked off campus for years when I was in school so I could keep *certain things* in my car without fear of search, seizure, or other repercussions.
There is a way to accomplish what you want to do without breaking any rules, ridiculous as they may be.
I drive my own car, pay my own insurance and fill up my tank with the money I get from my job. Also, the only knives my dad has are a Leatherman wave and Gerber backup guardian he got while in Egypt that he keeps in his room. My current plan is to talk to the principal on the first day of school and see if I can work something out. I have pictures of the knives on my phone set up to a tape measure so that they have a non-biased source to see the blade lengths for themselves without taking the risk of bringing them with me to show them
I know how to handle that. If I realize that I realize that I forgot a knife in my car, I can leave my keys on the driver's seat and keep the spare with me. Not planning on it, but it seems like a last second rear end saver
I ain't throwing my Benchmade or Victorinox or Spyderco out of my car. If I really had to, I'd walk to the local movie theater, catch a movie and know that they're not going to stick around for hours on end, on their own dime mind you on the off chance they find something

Except as provided under RCW 9.41.280, state law does not prohibit the possession of common pocket knives or other sharp tools on school grounds. However, school policies and rules do typically prohibit students from possessing knives on school grounds or at school events. Local ordinances may also prohibit minors from possessing knives either on or off of school grounds.
That will not work. The principle is not going to allow you to violate state law. You will only draw attention to yourself.
Right. Because that is what cops do when they want to search something that is locked. They just give up and go away
Also, won't you be late for work if you go watch a movie to avoid the police? At that point wouldn't it just be a better idea to leave the knife at home and take the extra half hour to get it after school?
Now wait a second. I thought you couldn't go home after school to get the knife before you go to work. But here you say you are going home? Why not just leave the knife at home if you are going there anyway?
I'll say it again, you should be talking to your parents about this not a bunch of strangers on the internet. Follow the rules and laws. Do what your parents say.
All this boils down to just one main fact. You're a kid on school grounds, and the school rules are no knives allowed. This also includes your car. As has been mentioned by some members who read the news, some kids who had knives in their cars have had major trouble over it. Factoid; when you are on school ground, the school rules are in effect. There is no compromise, no time out because you are special, nada. You say you are planning on joining the Coast Guard. Well kid, the Coast Guard is not about to let yo have a knife when you go through boot camp. Are you going to try to smuggle one in? Or how about when you have to go to a court house? No uni yes allowed there either. Or flying someplace. Going through airport security with a knife is a no-no.
Like it or not, being an obsessed knife nut or not, there's times in life that you are not going to be allowed to have a knife on you. Get over it. There's been five pages of text now on how to get around the rules. If I were a Coast Guard officer I'd be very hesitant to accept you on this basis, that you have a problem following rules when it comes to your knife fixation. I always had a knife in my pocket growing up, but when I went off to the army for boot camp, I had to leave my knife behind, and surprise, surprise, I survived the experience. Out of boot camp, I put a knife back in my pocket and went on with life. I had jury duty, so I left the knife home. Millions of people get by every day with no knife on them, and survive.
Leave a SAK at your work place, and don't make a big deal out of it. You're already made too big a deal out of a small issue, so chill out, follow the rules until you get out of school and get on with life. Even when you become an adult, there will still be rules to follow, so get used to it. There's names for those who don't follow rules too well. Inmate, looser, fast food industry worker.
You have your whole life in front of you right now. Don't screw it up over a fixation on some inanimate object.
