"I know mah rights!"- Steve

Also: As backup officers arrived, the mother of the family faked a seizure, police said.

I would have laughed at the whole incident, but I would've pissed myself seeing that.

Okay, did that cover all the bases?

And not one person had the acuity to say, "Have a knife day"?  That's the real travesty here.

Obviously they forgot that an amusement park is private property, not a government agency, and that "my land, my rules" applies there.

/In fact, if the park had phrased it that way, the family might have understood and not acted like fools.

The dumbass part was keeping the knives on the belt.  Just say "OK, sorry, we forgot we had them on", go back to the car, remove them from your belt, and put them in your pocket (assuming it's a folding knife)

Full disclosure:  I carry this model of knife with me everywhere I go:

i98.photobucket.com

The only exception is when I have to go to family court or the Department of Social Services*, in which case I leave it in the car because you have to go through a metal detector.

That means I carry it to local amusement parks.  Into malls.  At my work.  In my son's school.  Everywhere.  It just sits in my pocket.  And everyone knows it, because if something needs to be cut, or a screw driven, everyone looks at me.

And on the rare occasions when I think that I might need a bigger knife, I carry one.  But I'm reasonably discrete about it.   The only time I'm not discrete about it is when I'm dress up for the primitive biathlons, but few people are willing to challenge a guy with a Mohawk, feathers and beads in his hair, and a knife with a deer-antler handle on his belt.  But then, I don't got to amusement parks or the mall dressed like that (but do go to restaurants and some stores).

Yeah guys, the smart thing to do here is to lie and completely disregard the park owner's policies so you have some means to injure or kill another human. In an amusement park.

Why does the eye scraper say "can opener" on it?  Don't tell me how to use my knife.

That would be smart (or at least, smarter than what they did). Assholish, yes, but still smart.

Maybe, but maybe not.

I'm a big Second Amendment guy*, and I hate to have to say this, but not everyone on my side of the argument completely understands that the Bill of Rights is a limitation on government, not private individuals or corporations.  Now, "Public Accommodations" are somewhat limited in what they can and can't do (like discriminate based on race), but they can certainly require that you not carry weapons as a condition of entry.  Hell, they could require everyone to wear a silly hat if they wanted to.

Also, I wonder if they're dumb enough to jump bail, go back home to Vermont, and wait for the whole thing to just blow over because "they can't touch us, we're in another state." That would be awesome.

Not just the 2nd, but this is probably less understood that it applies to the 1st, as well.  Your freedom of speech does not extend to private parties, and no, you can't say that here, and you can leave now/you're fired.

There's are exceptions for schools; schools have to be able to act to avoid disruptions; schools can balance free expression with the necessity to teach kids the bounds of social behavior, and schools can censor stuff if they have a legitimate pedagogical reason.  How strict schools are varies by community.

I carry my kershaw POCKET knife almost everyday and every where.  Pocket being the key word. Carrying a pocket knife is very handy.    Why would someone need to carry (I assume) a fixed blade knife on their belt is beyond me.
