It will soon be legal in the US state of Maine for people with one arm to own and carry a switchblade (or “flick knife”) – because you need two hands to use a regular clasp knife.

A Maine legislator, Sheryl Briggs, has introduced LD 126, “An Act to Allow a Person With One Arm to Possess Certain Kinds of Prohibited Knives,” which exempts “an individual who has only one arm” from the state’s “dangerous knives” law and makes legal their “possession or transportation of a knife.”
