Knives are arms protected by the Second Amendment. As per the McDonald and Heller decisions, they are in common use and not "unusual and dangerous", as they are less dangerous to bystanders than any firearm.

There should be *no* restrictions on the ownership and carry of knives, except that places that are sensitive enough to restrict police from being armed, should also be able to restrict non-police from being armed.

I have the most beautiful switchblades from Germany—antler horn handles and 8 inches of cold, shiny death!

I agree. Brass knuckles and knuckle knives should be legalized in Alaska as well if they aren’t already.

I want one! The gun grabbers in most states are trying to ban any knife you can open with one hand, let alone these.

I disagree the Federal 2nd ammedment does not apply to alaska nor any political subdivision there too.

Alaska is subject only to the Alaskain Constitution in theses regards.

The relevant clause is: Article I, Section 19:

Ҥ 19. Right to Keep and Bear Arms
A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. The individual right to keep and bear arms shall not be denied or infringed by the State or a political subdivision of the State. [Amended 1994]”

Still i find myself perplexed as to why anyone would want to outlaw Switchblades or Gravity Knives.

Never understood why they were banned in the first place. A knife is a knife. How it opens has nothing to do with how it cuts or stabs.
