for some reason i dont think you are gunna get much help on this buddy....but thats just me....
Plus there is this... "The Switchblade Act, (public law 85-623, enacted on August 12, 1958, and codified in 15 USC 1241-1245), prohibits the manufacture (plus more stuff, but this pertains to you)... It provides exceptions for government agencies, members of the Armed Forces, and for one-armed persons." Thats if you live in the US. Other countries have different laws. Might want to look them up if you live outside the US.

Here in austria, there is no such law. We can have switchblades here. The internet isn't just for Americans. I can't tell you how frustrated I am with Americans constantly saying "That's illegal" without ever asking "Where are you from?"

As I said in your other topic, you are wrong with your assumption.
In Austria it is legal to buy and posess such knifes but not to carry them around in public - no matter if visible to others or not.
They also fall under the dangerous weapons laws in your country.
Before you make statements that might be vital for others you might actually want to check what you are talking about ;)

Section 1244. Exceptions:

4) the possession, and transportation upon his person, of any switchblade knife with a blade three inches or less in length by any individual who has only one arm.

Switchblades however, are often covered by specific law. Such laws generally restrict one or more of the following: manufacture, export, importation, sale, possession, or carrying in a public place.

In Canada switchblades are illegal. They are not legal to sell, buy, trade, carry or otherwise possess.

Most switchblades are illegal to own, import or export. However, if the blade is side-opening, a maximum of 8.5 cm long, the breadth is a minimum of 20% of length, and is not double-edged, they are legal.

United States:
Federal law

The Switchblade Act, (public law 85-623, enacted on August 12, 1958, and codified in 15 USC 1241-1245), prohibits the manufacture or transportation of switchblade knives in interstate commerce.

Local laws, an example - in California:

653k. Every person who possesses in the passenger's or driver's area of any motor vehicle in any public place or place open to the public, carries upon his or her person, and every person who sells, offers for sale, exposes for sale, loans, transfers, or gives to any other person a switchblade knife having a blade two or more inches in length is guilty of a misdemeanor.

And one more - Connecticut law states that:

§ 53-206. Carrying of dangerous weapons prohibited.
(a) Any person who carries upon one's person any BB. gun, blackjack, metal or brass knuckles, or any dirk knife, or any switch knife, or any knife having an automatic spring release device by which a blade is released from the handle, having a blade of over one and one-half inches in length, or stiletto, or any knife the edged portion of the blade of which is four inches or over in length, any police baton or nightstick, or any martial arts weapon or electronic defense weapon, as defined in section 53a-3, or any other dangerous or deadly weapon or instrument, shall be fined not more than five hundred dollars or imprisoned not more than three years or both. Whenever any person is found guilty of a violation of this section, any weapon or other instrument within the provisions of this section, found upon the body of such person, shall be forfeited to the municipality wherein such person was apprehended, notwithstanding any failure of the judgment of conviction to expressly impose such forfeiture

I don't think the kid's worried about laws. :-/

If someone hands him a sentence of five hundred dollars or imprisoned not more than three years or both. I am sure he will become quite mindful of them.
Plus those are just the federal laws. The state laws where he is at could be even more severe.
The last two paragraphs are California and Connecticut state laws, as examples of what is out there.
