SEATTLE, Wash. – Knife laws turn thousands of law abiding citizens into criminals every year, because knife laws do not take into account of intent, meaning, if you are carrying a knife used as a tool in the pursuit of your job or hobby, and it’s illegal, you are still a criminal under the eyes of the law.
These knives are often times purchased over the counter from sporting goods and home repair stores in the city they are arrested and prosecuted. In fact, this is such a big issue in New York, where thousands of people per year are arrested on knife related charges. It’s so bad that the major theatre unions have warned union members of the risk of carrying their toolbag outside of work.
Knife enthusiasts and tradesmen who buy pocket knives online from websites like https://hobanco.com/collections/pocket-knives can accidently purchase a knife that is not legal to carry in their local municipality, and without any intent to commit a criminal act, become a criminal.
Hobanco.com is launching an education and awareness campaign to educate knife enthusiasts and Americans who use knives regularly in their work.
Hobanco has two goals to this campaign:
- Overturn unjust knife laws
Hobanco plans to accomplish the 2nd goal by donating a portion of their profit to attorneys and legal firms challenging unconstitutional knife laws.
