So I bought a pair of brass knucks yesterday at the Army Surplus store and I was wondering what the legalities are on them. Any help?

They were about 12 bucks but the store's going out of business so everything is 30% off.

I'm reasonably sure that using that actually using them to beat people is slightly illegal.

check for where you live.

brass knuckles are weapons (something designed to injure others). if you walk around with them in your pockets you are considered carrying a concealed weapon. (my friend was on probation for like a year because of that).

You should be fine just owning them as long as you don't carry them around/brandish them at the elderly.

Yeah I have a "paperweight" in the shape of brass knuckles. lol.... carrying them or using them on anyone would be illegal but having it out on my desk I'm pretty sure is not.

Its illegal to carry them as a weapon. You can't be having a weapon on you just for having a weapon. If you can say they are for something else then you can have them. There is no law that says you can't own a piece of brass though.

Depends where you live. Don't take them with you if you go to school though. If anyone knew you had them there I'm guessing you'd get expelled. Not like you can explain brass knucks away with their "alternate use".

It would be similiar to me walking around with a pair of nunchucks...the police dont like that.
Basicly it's a weapon

Well it's illegal to beat people. Or just hurt people in any way. So I'm sorry, but I don't think beating people ups is ok just because you're using a weapon to do so.
