Arms Race, Old-Skool Style

Headed to a meeting today, I saw a sidewalk merchant hawking knives, swords, and similar sorts of devices from a card table. What’s Saint Paul coming to, where sleazy shysters are hawking cheap made-in-China katanas to pedestrians in the middle of the day? Two hours later, I passed the same corner again on my way back from the meeting, and he was in somewhat animated discussion with two St. Paul police officers, who were probably explaining to him the necessity of having a vendor’s permit, and not in any way, I’m sure, questioning the legality (in St. Paul) of any of his merchandise…

In Saint Paul, folding knives over five inches overall length are a no-no, as are any fixed-blade knives. Could be good to know, if you’re, say, planning on coming armed to the RNC convention next year…
