While a little gray I think that since the law defines hand pressure on a button, spring "or other device" to automatically open to be a switchblade, most all OTF's I have seen would be banned from sale since they have a sliding switch on them, regardless of what the marketing says. It also does not help that most manufacturers also consider and call their OTF knives automatics, a lot of them have it printed right on the box. Assist knives should be fine as mentioned except in cHarm City and OC AFAIK.

Quote:
4–105.
(a) A person may not sell, barter, display, or offer to sell or barter:
(1) a knife or a penknife having a blade that opens automatically by hand pressure applied to a button, spring, or other device in the handle of the knife, commonly called a switchblade knife or a switchblade penknife; or
(2) a device that is designed to propel a knife from a metal sheath by means of a high-compression ejector spring, commonly called a shooting knife.
(b) A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to imprisonment not exceeding 12 months or a fine of not less than $50 and not exceeding $500 or both.

So you have to obtain a automatic from out of state? It can’t be sold in MD but is still legal to own? Wow confusing as hell.

Are these spring assisted knives to be considered like the 30 round mag? Meaning that you can't buy it in Maryland because they are illegal to sell in Maryland. BUT can you carry in Maryland (not in some localities) and it would be considered legal without any ramifications?

That code only talks about the sale of such knife. There is nothing I see that describes what the law is in regard to carrying the same knife in Maryland.

Confused..... as usual.

It sure seems like the 30 mag deal. I’m from PA and find it odd that MD will allow ownership of automatic knives but has a stupid AWB. The AWB reminds me of the Clinton Ban where it’s just about the cosmetics of the Rifle.

Yes, CR 4-105 only covers sale. But CR 4-101 covers carry. Long story short, 4-101 has no prohibitions against open carry of weapons* but does prohibit concealed carry of certain weapons, the switchblade being one named explicitly (but the penknife, which includes "assisted openers", being exempt.)

Just like high capacity magazines.

Oops, already mentioned multiple times I see.

Based on nothing more than what my pedestrian brain says...

If the Government makes illegal a thing formally legal , they are required to compensate persons being deprived of said thing. If the Government takes your home by imminent domain to build a bridge, they have to pay you fair market value. I don't think any state wants to be in the position of setting a price and buying an unknown number of items. It becomes a black hole, particularly if residents *can* travel to adjoining jurisdictions, purchase said item and return to "turn it in" at a profit.
