dittybopper: 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 image 800x600]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).*The distaffbopper and I are foster parents.

fireclown: Marylands knife carry rules seem to vary widely, and I have a creeping hunch that LEOs have no effing clue what they are. The rule seems to be pretty much "don't look like a dangerous tard and it won't come up". Which I dislike, since I like all laws to cover all people equally.Nobody outside of an airport has ever questioned my leatherman though. It's the wood-stocked semi auto of the knife world.
dittybopper: Galloping Galoshes: 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.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.*And First, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, etc. Amendment guy.

offacue: Galloping Galoshes: You generally won't walk into an amusement park and get much trouble because you have your butterfly collection on your belt.Uh, I certainly could..... ButterflyAlthough I only have one, not a collection......
