Would bars allow you to carry a sword for a halloween party?

Asked by Achilles (225points) October 19th, 2009

I have a few costume contests I want to enter, but obviously the Achilles costume isn’t nearly as cool w/out my sword and shield. However I’m afraid that they won’t let me carry them in because they can be “deadly weapons.” Any suggestions? Anyone a bar tender/owner? Anyone a cop?

Does it have to be a real sword? I don’t know about the legalities of the situation, but having a weapon where people will be drinking and getting rowdy seems pretty stupid to me.

You should check with your local. Swords may be illegal weapons in your town unless used for a certain gathering.

BTW: I own a tavern…and NOPE, I wouldn’t let you bring in the weapon

The last BIG Halloween party I went to was at a bar and the bouncer at the door was collecting all “weapon” type items. It’s just asking for trouble. However the cardboard w/ tinfoil swords we’re allowed. Everything from wood Fairy-wands to devil pitchforks were taken away. He was writing the name on the owner’s ID on a piece of tape and sticking it to the “weapon” so it could be collected later when they left or over the next couple of days.

Honestly, I was happy they did this. The last thing that over crowded bar needed was two goons to go-ater with plastic armor swinging those hard plastic swords! – LB
