    Question: Is it illegal to own or possess a malee weapon, such as a sword or kendo stick?

    Answer: Laws vary from state to state concerning these weapons. For example, in Michigan, there appears to be no law against owning these weapons, but there are various laws preventing a person from carrying them as weapons. MCL 764.1.f states that a juvenile cannot carry or possess a club or any object likely to cause death when used as a weapon (MCL 764.1.f). Both a sword and kendo stick could logically be considered to be objects that could cause death. If a minor in Michigan were found to be carrying a sword or kendo stick, he or she would probably be presumed to be carrying it as a weapon until proven otherwise.

    I was planning on going to the Comic-Con convention this year, and I was going to dress up and everything. I was wondering if it would be illegal to carry a steel katana with me around the place, accompanied by an adult of age 26?

    Well, I know these group of people, who are cosplayers. Meaning they dress up as characters from anime/manga/video games. Most of them carry weapons during conventions as an accesory to their costume. Is that allowed or not? I mean they aren't allowed to go inside the convention center with them, but they are allowed to walk around Aneheim with them.

    In Arizona as long as a knife, sword, etc.. is visible it can be carried around in public. The only illegal weapon in AZ is numchucks. Also, if the blade of the weapon is 4 inches or shorter then it can be concealed.
