In a fit of impulse I bought some knives on Amazon.com that

In a fit of impulse I bought some knives on Amazon.com that were all under $10, not then knowing the law in my state (Pennsylvania, Chester County). I also bought an English style baton and billy club. I have no lawful purpose for these items, but in the spirit that many people have an interest in guns, I had an interest in knives and bats. I've since emailed the providers of the weapons to tell them to cancel shipment, but I don't know if they will still ship the items to me. I don't want to get in trouble for having these items shipped to me, simply because I didn't know the law. Is there anyway I can inform the police in my area so that I don't get in trouble for transporting or dealing with "offensive weapons"?

I have asked a Korean attorney in MA to find my judgements by tracing my court record. I want to know how much would be the right amount to ask for the attorney for collection in general. If too expensive, I have to look for a different attorney I think. Please, let me know. Thank you very much for your opinion.
