Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Ahhh, yes, patience. I have it, and will wait thusly. In the interest of full disclosure, I will tell you I am 70 years old. I will not carry any of these 'illegal weapons' except maybe a large knife to the Thanksgiving table. The point, however, as I'm sure you understand, is that no one should be telling me I can't carry them just because they don't want me to. I am not a fanatic. But as a kid I could walk the streets of Massachusetts or northern Virginia causing no concern even while carrying a bowie knife or a bb gun. I hope Americans remain free.
