This is such a complex issue, it can't be dealt with in any type of blanket rule.

Glad you got the chance to shoot many people make assumptions never having touched a gun and not everyone is comfortable around them which is fine as well. You made a personal decision that worked for you and that is really a good foundation and we aren't really on opposite sides here. But isn't your choice of carrying a switch blade not equal to but somewhat on the level of carrying a gun??
I also assume that that is illegal to own and carry??? I don't live there so I don't know the laws there, it is illegal to carry hear.
What part of i have gone to the gun range doesnt resonate that i have never shot a gun?! Its a swiss army knife tucked away in a messenger bag...cannot go off on its own...cant hurt innocent bystanders...and it is way diff from a gun...a swiss army knife is legal here...
