Looking for legal info, in CT


Recommended Posts

I am interested in selling knives/ sharp item in in Connecticut, and have had no luck finding any info on this, and would like some guide line or some places to look.

Not looking for free legal advice!!

Also is there any federal law that is important? for shipping purposes whatever.
is there any way to verify age on -bay or other auction sites?

sorry if this is in the wrong place

Try here KNIFE LAWS of the 50 STATES I check here to see if an order complies before I make them to ship, the client may still want the blade, but I know that, they know the legal issues with it.

In general most places accept a credit card as proof of age. But I am not a lawyer, that's my sisters job.

I make knives as a hobby, and people have started trying to buy from me. I am also a prof of Psy and Law, so I know the legal system.

I searched, and consulted local and state law enforcement, and the results are below:

Kevin, I hope this helps. As far as having it the car as long as you keep it in the trunk and dont have it hanging out the window i dont think you would have a problem transporting it for sale. If you need anything else just let me know. Thanks Joe
