Stabbed in the leg? I guess that's one way to do it.
/have one of those canes.

And if charges end up being filed, my question will be how would this be any different from someone with a concealed carry permit shooting their attacker?

Swords don't come with lobbyists.

As far as I know there is no such thing as a Concealed Sword Permit, so regardless of whether he was attacked or his life was in danger, that older man is probably going to get charged with illegally carrying a concealed weapon.

So what is the difference between this guy and a guy with a concealed handgun permit? This guy broke the law, and was doing so even before the fight started. Book him. Done.

I don't think this really calls for a Pennsylvania tag, Subby. Here in PA we cling to our guns and religion. Sword canes? Not so much.

For people who conceal certain items for self defense; perhaps *gasp* even without a permit:

...

Officer Friendly: So you are saying this man pulled the knife he has in his cold dead hand and threatened to kill you with it?

You: Yes

Officer Friendly: Then what happened.

You: I shot/stabbed him because I was cornered and felt my life was in immediate danger.

Officer Friendly: Where did you get the gun/knife you used?

You: I'd like to have my attorney present before answering any more questions.

Am I doing it right?

Speak of the Devil and he shall appear!

Just yesterday I was reading an article from 1863 in the Scientific American about a the crime panic of 1863 in London, England. Criminals were garotting (strangling) pedestrians with wire and robbing them. It was called the Garotting Panic and produced a number of cartoons in PUNCH magazine including depictions of anti-garotting devices such as steel collars, etc. Sword canes are illegal in most places but you can still find many originals plus an infinite supply of fakes and imitations, some disguised as umbrellas or walking sticks, some concealed by other covers.

The article claimed that sword canes and similar devices were selling "more openly" than oranges and roast chestnuts on the streets of London, at least to the monied classes.

Among other famous panics in our great cities are panics involving women being robbed of their locks of hair (presumably by fetishists or people selling hair to wig makers), people being pricked with hatpins (every once in a while women seem to get the urge to assault other people on omnuses or in crowds with their hat pins for some reason), and various monsters such as Spring Heeled Jack, who assaulted people and then lept away like a kangaroo or monkey.

These panics were fairly common in the 1800s and early 1900s. Some of them ressemble the urban legends and panics of today (such as the alien-robot-monkey men of India) and some of them are culturally bound because the tools of the attacker (such as hat pins) have become obsolete or rare.

The Fortean Times (and the 50 years ago 100 years ago ... column of Scientific American) is full of such panics and flaps. Charle Fort went through tens of thousands of notes to compile his books of anomalies, which record many such flaps, mostly in his time but some going back centuries when they struck his fancy.

We Farkers are the heirs and heiresses of many centuries of novelties, freaks,  faits divers and feuilletons, and the production of anomalies and panics seems to get ever greater, although it may simply be an epiphenomenon resulting from greater and greater news coverage and Fark-mongering by professional and amateur journalists.

The most likely explanation for such flaps is that journalists are very imitative and when their attention is called to any entertaining factoid, are likely to replicate it until the public loses interest and moves on to some other nine day (or nowadays, nine minute) wonder.

Here in the Shallow South, sword canes are illegal. You can wear a pistol concealed (with a permit) or openly (without a permit), or carry a rifle walking down the street, but carrying a sword cane in public is a felony.

/I really wanted one of these.
//Actually need a cane to walk.
