From what I've read, the laws about carrying of knives is pretty stringent in Massachusetts. My question is, are those hard plastic self-defense push daggers illegal to carry? They are not technically a bladed knife nor are they sharp on either side. They simply come to a hard point on the end.

Possess it, potentially use it, get charged with ABDW or worse. A pointed-toe boot is legal until you use it as a device to assault people. Get the point?

Just carry a firearm, much wider application, much more versatile, much more likely to actually make a difference

Your opinion might be that it鈥檚 芦not technically a bladed knife禄, but yours is not the opinion that matters. Ask yourself how much you鈥檙e willing to pay an attorney (start with 5 figures) to try to convince a jury that a plastic knife intended to inflict knife wounds is actually not a knife, while the prosecutor uses its appearance, marketing, and obvious intended use against you.

With a large flashlight, you have a chance of convincing someone it's not a weapon.
What do you carry those for? Bicycle wheel chocks?
