Customer Question
In light of the...

In light of the latest church massacre I feel vulnerable in church and normally use a cane due to severe degenerative arthritis in my knees. I'm barely able to walk, let alone run from an attacker. I was wondering if replacing my usual cane with on with a sword inside would be an option in the State of Maryland, City of Annapolis.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Nothing has happened.

a lot is going to have to do with keeping the fact that you have a weapon in your walking cane to yourself

It is for protection and not letting people know

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
