CIVIL RIGHTS UPDATE: On Wisconsin!: State Appeals Court rules man can possess a switchblade in his home. “The appellate court found the possession prohibition is unconstitutional as applied specifically to the facts of Herrmann’s particular case. The judges said the state’s argument that the prohibition protects public safety has nothing to do with Herrmann’s case since possession in a home for self-defense poses little to no danger to the public.”

Specifically rooted in Heller and the Right to Arms. More here. Of course, progressive, civil-rights-conscious states, like Tennessee, have opened up knife rights in and out of the home by statute. Perhaps Wisconsin will catch up.
