    Question...

    WTH am I missing here?!? What're all the codes -- #^%^%$#& -- and what do they mean? Did I miss that part? I have special interest in NJ and SC. While I tend not to ask questions I don't particularly want to know the answer to, you've already provided the answers...I might as well know the questions, too.

    Great job by the way...whatever they mean. Great, exhaustive work. Well done.

    FWIW, I carried . . . more-or-less open, in a homemade IWB belt sheath with the handle exposed . . . a Gerber Mk I for years, all over NYC and the Boroughs, even once into 1 Police Plaza. Never challenged or questioned. Still have it, and the sheath. One day if we ever get together under agreeable circumstances, I'll bring it along.

    Handgun/Knife

    What I read and understand is that if you have a CHL (Concealed Handgun License) that has been issued pursuant to state statutes then you can carry a deadly weapon concealed. A deadly weapon could be a handgun, but could also be any number of things listed else where in the statutes.

    I would like to get together and possibly go shooting sometimes. I'm new to the shooting sport but do intend to be safe and diligent about my responsibility.

    Hey, I'm in Las Cruces too. Look me up if you want someone to go shooting with!

    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

    Here is NJ law on Knifes.

    2C:39-3; Apparently you need an explainable lawful purpose to get away with carrying anything besides a dagger/dirk/stiletto, auto, gravity, or balistic knife, which are flat-out illegal. Even then, as in most states, certain less-common knives would probably be "per se" weapons even with an explanation. * NJ state police seem to think all knives are illegal unless the carrier has an explainable lawful purpose. Legally, that probably isn't so, but it may take a court hearing, some lightening of your pockets, and some quality time in jail to sort things out.
