I believe NJ law is vague on the issue of blade length; also, it is ambiguous (peppered with phrases like "for a lawful purpose") which basically allow the police to arbitrarily decide whether or not you are carrying something they can charge you for. I don't have those laws handy at the moment but they're pretty easy to find on the state's website.

What length is legal?

Depends. If it were an item legal to carry like a tweezer or pocketknife I think you should have the option to walk away with it without entry. If it is a knife of illegal length then confiscation seems appropriate, not least as a stupidity penalty for trying to walk through a metal detector carrying it.

Melting them down seems stupid. do like the airlines and Ebay them in big lots or donate them to the boyscouts.

Right, cause once someone confiscates your steak knife, you're pretty much disarmed for life.


You are so clever and right. Let them keep their weapons.

Confiscated items cannot be recovered by their owners. They're eventually taken to a foundry and melted down, according to a spokesman for Hudson County Sheriff Juan M. Perez, who added that he hopes people will be more careful about what they are carrying in the future.


Why should the people be more careful? Keep'em coming. What a great way to get weapons off the street.

Yup, they confiscated my tweezers the one's that I use to pick the hairs from my nose when I did jury duty this past Jan. Hope no one gets MRSA.

How are people suppose to protect themselves while they are getting to the courthouse if they can't bring their knives?

DIDN'T MAKE CUT AT COURTHOUSE
3 months of confiscated weapons on display

Thursday, March 20, 2008
By PAUL KOEPP
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

It's amazing what some people will try to bring into a courthouse.

The Hudson County Sheriff's Office showed off yesterday a collection of hundreds of knives and other weapons that security officers have confiscated over the last three months from people entering the county Administration Building and the Brennan Courthouse.

The implements that did not pass muster at the X-ray machines and metal detectors included steak knives, tweezers, a skewer and a small meat cleaver.

"I guess it's their weapons for street survival," said John Bartucci, chief of operations for the Sheriff's Office. Many people also carry boxcutters or similar objects and don't realize they can't bring them inside, he said.

Confiscated items cannot be recovered by their owners. They're eventually taken to a foundry and melted down, according to a spokesman for Hudson County Sheriff Juan M. Perez, who added that he hopes people will be more careful about what they are carrying in the future.
