I'm not a very "normal" girl. If I am carrying a bag at all it's almost always a camera bag containing a DSLR with a 28-135mm lens, polarizing filter and lens hood. Within my trusty bag's compartments there will be my oyster (travel) card, a little cash and or a credit card and my mobile phone, if it won't fit in my pocket comfortably. There may be chapstick and ibuprofen but that's about it.

It's funny I got into an argument with an airline customer service person who was trying to tell me that a camera bag isn't considered a "personal item", such as a purse/handbag. (then started telling me what is normal to carry in a handbag, which was hugely patronizing and stereotypical.) I replied: "So because I'm toting a camera instead of a bunch of make up and tampons you're going to discriminate against my choice of what I carry and how? This IS my handbag and it's going to be considered my personal item since I am carrying no others." He dropped the issue at that point. Knobend.

The bag of minor controversy:

It's smaller than many women's ridiculously massive handbags nowadays anyway... presumably to accommodate their gigantic sunglasses and dying dreams.

Where I come from (eastern/central North Carolina, USA), just about every man that I know (and quite a few women) carries a pocket knife with them everywhere. One of the reasons I hate flying is because I feel under prepared without a pocket knife. They're just so damned useful.

In a lot of US states, knives under a certain size (3" generally) do not count as weapons.

Yes, I am 17 and have had a knife on me when ever I leave the house since I was 12.

every state has it's own laws on the size of the knife. but you can carry one in every state.

But (1) how do you carry tampons; and (2) avoid getting mugged or knived in London with a camera bag?

I got my first pocketknife when I was 8, but I was also taught how to use it (and how not to use it), how to sharpen it, take care of it, etc. Basically, it was always ingrained in me that it's a tool, not a toy.

The very thought that a government would consider a pocketknife a "weapon" is both funny and sad to me. They're roughly as dangerous as a pencil, IMO.

Curious, to all those who live in places where knives aren't allowed - are you allowed a knife in your home? How do you cut a piece of steak, or better yet, how do you prepare meals at home? Where, and why, is the line drawn between having a knife at home and carrying one on your person?

A knife, no matter how small, can still kill - a quick stab to the carotid artery, in the eyes/ears, or even just into the stomach where it can rupture organs. Pencils don't quite have the same penetrating power, nor the ability to slash...

Banning them from being carried means that some people won't, reducing weapons on the streets. In the UK you can be 'done' for having a screwdriver or anything else that could be construed as dangerous, in your possession for no reason (ie: a kid loitering on a street corner at night, with a screwdriver in their pocket is probably not using it for DIY).

In regards to at home, of course you can have knives. I have a set of very expensive, incredibly sharp kitchen knives - but they don't leave my home, or go for trips in the car. So the line is drawn at the boundary of your house - take it outside and you're breaking the law (well, without reason - if you're going to be catering or something then it's fine, but a knife in isolation is a no). There is no reason to be carrying a knife in an urban setting 'just because' - we're not living off the land any more. You can probably have one in a toolkit with no problem however, such as a fishing tackle box.


http://www.bkcg.co.uk/guide/law.html
This is a pretty concise guide to UK law. 3.0" or less, folding, is allowed, but can still be construed as an offensive weapon in certain circumstances - so blithely carrying one all the time isn't a good idea. However if you're going camping, then it's fine. Other knife types are either banned, or can only be carried for your job/sport, and you can't take it everywhere.

Yea i agree, compairing a knife to a pencil is just stupid. Its people that think like that who shouldn't own one.

I understand if you're in the police (do all american police carry guns?) but I guess from a UK perspective it just seems really weird to imagine joe bloggs walking down the road with a gun in his jacket.

As i said no offence meant I'm just curious.
While some do, most, but I am sure not all of the people in this thread claiming to do so are not telling the truth. First, Glock's marketshare would be abnormally represented here (it is high though, like 65%). The 48 states that do allow concealed hand guns (for non leo/civilians) 44 require a permit and most of them offer penalties if your concealed weapon an be seen by others.

I am not sure about other states, but unless they changed the wall recently anyone can walk down the street with visible guns in Texas, no permit required. It is somewhat odd since it is a violation to have your concealed weapon visible.

I don't have any statistics handy, but I do not believe licensed gun slingers commit very little crime. They also prevent very little crime. I recall a few notable accidental shootings. US gun statistics are about the most manipulated numbers in the world so it is hard to find actual data.

What does the UK law state? No guns.

Okay, that's a slight lie. Shotguns/single shot rifles are permitted under certain (tightly controlled) circumstances, such as for farmers, sportsmen and hunters. Joe Bloggs off the street certainly cannot just go and buy a gun. Packing a pistol will get you in rather a lot of trouble, and certainly jail time - handguns are banned. Basically, guns on the streets are illegal, and the only guns you'll see will be at shooting ranges, or intrinsically tied to a profession/sport that requires one.

Oh, or you may see some of the armed police at airports.
