 So I've been off parole for a few years and I know getting a gun is way out of the question;


but what about a knife? I'm in California and find getting  any info on my rights hard to come by, or extreamly vague ...

Nobody said you couldn't ask. It's just that we used to get intelligent questions in here. That's why I asked WTF? You're a parollee, you wish to purchase a knife. Purchase it, we live in a free country. Don't carry it concealed or in a threatening manner or you may find yourself eating pavement. Or do so, we like the entertainment.

Yes, you can ask questions. Call your old parole officer and ask them. I PROMISE you they will know the answer ! Every state is different. In my state you may get them back as soon as you get off parole, or you may have to wait 10 yrs or you may NEVER get them back. It's all about what you were convicted of.

wow, I actually consider myself to respect law enforcement. Your response most likely reflects how you serve.


Your a blot and a disgrace.

Advice is the road you should follow!  Rehabilitation is what it should be!  I would rather you ask here then get slammed on the concrete and incarcerated again.  Remember, we as LE are human too!  Good luck with that and your life!

 Lose the attitude Jonguz......Do not come in here and be disrespectful. The common sense thing would be to go to your parole officer and ask that question. But apparently that would be to hard do or your looking for a loop hole to get around the law and get a better answer. Well you wont find that here. 


You wouldn't go in there for a million bucks...A Cop does it for less...A Reserve does it for free....

Thanks to those who responded to my question,


To the rest thinking I'm looking for a loop hole or that asking isn't intelligent, or that I'm disrespectful because I use my voice,


I'm also thankful for you. Because without you, I wouldn't have an example of how not to be when given a position of authority.


Thank you!

Best bet is as Cat said contact your PO and also a lawyer specializing in weapons laws in Cali. There's a whole list of factors to consider and well I'm not a lawyer. Long story short no dirks, daggers, switchblades, swords, swordcanes, throwing knives, or any blade designed to conceal its apperance or what it is.


Basically a pocket knife with a blade length of less than 3 inches is the only thing that will be legal in the whole of California. You have to weigh in on where you live too because cities have their own regulations. Also depends on what you were charged with terms of probation etc.


Never been down that road so I don't know how it works. I just know firearms laws. Hope that helps a little.


Main thing is still to consult your PO before doing anything.


Funny how the only enumerated right that contains the phrase "shall not be infringed" suffers the heaviest regulation. I'm still trying to find where it says anything about hunting and targets.

Axe your parole officer. Odd question. I notice an attitude. Remember this is our house and you are a visitor.

If you respected law and order/enforcememnt you would not be a "parolee" aka CRIMINAL!!


Sorry, but convicted criminals should not be asking about weapons.

I read where the parolee said he was a ( former) parolee for several years. I believe that he should be able to buy hunting weapons not a fire arm. It depends on why he wants it, but  any way that should go for anyone. As far as a knife that is a redicules question. There are legal knives he can buy. I mean people who are on parole use a kitchen knive everyday. As far as I am concerned fingernails can be used as a weapon.  Remember former parolees have paid for there crime and should be a part of sociaty just like those who have done a crime but never got caught. We, as people are not perfect, even police officers. yes there are bad murderous people who are on parole that should have stayed in prison,but very few. Most are serving life sentences. Whether we like it or not X Parolee are people too and should be treated as other paople. Go buy a hunting gun, go buy a knive, and vote,use a computer, and work in this sociaty.


Thanks

Uh, NO! Depending on the crime committed, a convicted person cannot just go PURCHASE a firearm for any reason.Federal and all state laws prohibit all felonies, any crime where the punishment exceeds 12 months, domestic violence misdemeanors, mental incapacitation and more. The laws do not make a distinction for defense or hunting, a firearm is a firearm. PERIOD. Our society has consequences for the choices. IF YOU CHOOSE TO COMMIT A CRIMINAL ACT YOU SUFFER THE  CONSEQUENCES!. LOSS OF RIGHTS. The recidivism rate in this country is apalling. I for one do not want any criminal legally arming themselves LEGALLY.
