In April, Freddie Gray was arrested in West Baltimore for possessing a switchblade knife.
While most of the discourse surrounding this case has focused on police brutality, another important issue has arisen from the case: Knife laws. Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby claims that, under Maryland law, Gray's knife was not illegal. Alternatively, the arresting officers argue that the knife was illegal under Baltimore's ordinance.
With the different knife laws among cities and states, could they both be right?
