laws of buying a sword

QUESTION:: Ok I want to buy a sword at a mall in Oregon and the only problem is I'm under 18. Do i need a concealed weapons permit to carry it to my moms car? P.S. it's a Tensa Bankai of of Bleach, the anime.


ANSWER:The laws do vary quite a bit from state to state, country to country and I am not familiar with the specific laws applicable to Oregon.

As you are under 18 though, it is highly unlikely they will sell it to you in the first place.

Sorry I can't be of much more help, I suggest calling the store and asking them what the legal requirements are first hand, probably the easiest thing to do.

rules in oregon

I am from Oregon and there aren't really any strict rules when it comes to cutlery and as for buying it the mall you don't need a concealed weapons permit the VERY tightly wrap them in tape and boxes and more tape to the point where they are at times frustrating to get out of the box... you should be fine. And as for buying in the mall I wouldn't you often get seriously ripped off.
hope this helped,

A Concealed Weapon Permit only applies to handguns; and no one under 18 can get a Concealed Weapon Permit anyway. That would be crazy!
But yes, if a legal gardian is with you, it is perfectly legal to carry it from the store to the car--no one would ever buy a sword if he had to leave it IN the store, and even cops know this. Just ask the store to wrap it up corectly. If it comes wrapped in clear plastic (like many do)you're good to go, just put it in a store bag as well. As long as you're not acting all macho and go straight to the car you should be fine; though being under 18 it would be best to let someone over 18 carry it for you.
A WARNING THOUGH: PUT THE SWORD IN PLAIN VIEW IN THE BACK SEAT. IN MOST EVERY STATE CARRYING A SWORD IN THE TRUNK OF A CAR IS(TECNICALLY)A CONCEALED WEAPON. When I was in Wisconcin a cop almost arrested me for this.
But the best piece of advice I can give you is this: Call the District Attorney's office and ask to speak to an intern. He or She will be able to answer these questions better than anyone.
