>>1678603>only slipjoints and fixed blades with <6cm blade will be safe to carry.
Back to /pol with your propaganda. None of this is true.
1. the new law hasn't been passed yet (sadly). The President still needs to sign off on it. hopefully tomorrow.
2. the 6cm restriction applies only to "Waffenverbotszonen" (for the americans: gun-free zones).
3. There is no distinction between slipjoints, fixed blades and other knives in this law (or other weapons for that matter).
4. As with §42a before, the law does not apply if you have a "valid reason" to carry. Unlike before though, now simply possessing ANY kind of weapon license is considered a valid reason - including the blank gun concealed carry license, which every german can get as long as they're not members of the NSDAP or KPD (both of which have been banned for so long that there are no members left) and haven't committed crimes in the past year.
5. more than that, because the new law amends §42, the new definition also applies to §42a, meaning that as long as you're willing to pay the 50€ for a blank gun license, you can legally carry an expandable baton, a broadsword or any other cold weapon that is not illegal to possess.
The whole story about "regulating weapons more strictly" was a psyop. As I've detailled above, knives are actually less restricted than before, and at the same time, nightvision scopes and silencers were also legalized. The only restriction added was that high-capacity mags for semiautos are now not only illegal to use but also illegal to possess. Mags for full-auto guns and belts are unaffected though.
Personally, I'm going to get a disc-lock baton the moment this law passes.>>1678604
Going by what he writes about a 6cm limit, he's german, not british. The british cutoff is at 3in.
Also, last time I checked (two years ago), knives that did not lock open were legal to own and carry in the UK.
