Here's an illuminating article In new York city you can buy a pocket knife at home Depot and be arrested for posessing it walking out the door. Stage hands, carpenters, plumbers, etc have been arrested for essentially carrying their work tools. And of course there's wide racial disparity in the enforcement of these laws.
