Certain knives can lead to criminal charges

When people think of weapons laws, they may automatically think about guns. While firearms are a huge consideration when it comes to weapons, there are others that you should also think about. Knives, for example, can be considered cutlery, but they are also weapons. 

Understanding the weapons laws in Colorado is imperative for anyone who plans on carrying one here. People who carry a knife that’s illegal or who carry a legal knife in an illegal manner can face criminal charges. 

What are the classifications of knives?

There are two classifications of knives in Colorado – ballistic and non-ballistic. A ballistic knife is one that has a blade that can be ejected from the knife by manipulating a lever or trigger. It’s a Class 5 felony in Colorado to carry a ballistic knife. Knives with a blade that remains attached to the handle are non-ballistic knives. 

What are the blade length limitations?

You can carry a knife with a blade up to 3.5 inches long. It can be concealed or open everywhere you go, even if you’re on school grounds. Knives with blades longer than that can only be concealed if you’re within your own home or on a property that’s under your control. There are some additional exceptions for certain hunting or fishing activities. 

All weapons charges should be taken very seriously. Working with someone who knows the laws pertaining to weapons is beneficial since you can draw from their knowledge. You should get started on your defense quickly so you have time to review the options and determine what to include in your defense strategy.
