Just wondering what knife laws were like down there? Looked it up online but got little clear stuff, seemed to be lots of loopholes.
I'd be looking at a 2-2 1/2" assisted opening knife for everyday stuff.
Also wondering if there were any weird laws regarding carrying this kind of thing onto University grounds?
Rhode Island law is very clear. Look up Title 11 Chapter 47. You can pull up the link to all of RI's laws by going to google and typing "Rhode Island General Laws"
That being said, Rhode Islands knive laws... like a lot of their firearms laws.. are unconstitutional, but until incorporation, not much can be done.
