eJournal: How does defense with knives sit with juries?
MacYoung: Knives are a thug’s weapons. If you stab somebody and you stab him repeatedly, then you’re going to be the bad guy in their minds. It is really hard to get rid of that impression if you’ve gone “weed-whacker-of-death” on him. I can justify cutting and running a whole lot better.
Juries are also weary of people who take knife fighting classes to be better at 'knife fighting' for 'self defense'...think about what these two terms really say to a judge and jury.
There are no permits for carrying knives for self defense, as there are firearms concealed licenses issued by police.
Think of the reasons why.
