Gun laws here really suck. For ppl who need guns, like hunters, it gets more and more difficult while it stays ez to get guns for ppl who commit crimes.
I nearly got into serious trouble with the police a couple years ago for carrying a Leatherman on my belt. Reason for it to be seen as an illegal weapon here is that you can unfold the knife with the thumb, according to the cops.
You get treated the same for carrying a Leatherman Surge here as if you just got caught carrying a handgun, which is quite retarded.
I was lucky to get a chill officer who liked it as a nice and handy tool as I do but warned me to not carry it outside my home.
