  3. Yes they can. Are they legally allowed to? That varies depending on what state the felon lives in. There are restrictions on blade length and how the blade opens, not that the felon really cares about the law but, for citizens that do care, there are rules that need to be followed. The rules may be arbitrary and irritating but, the rules are not about safety, they are about control. I recommend Knife Rights for more information. They are kind of like the NRA but, only for knives.
