 Michigan Case Law:
- "Constitutionality: The double jeopardy protection against
  multiple punishment for the same offense is a restriction
  on a court's ability to impose punishment in excess of that
  intended by the Legislature, not a limit on the Legislature's
  power to define crime and fix punishment. People v. Sturgis,
  427 Mich. 392, 397 N.W.2d 783 (1986).

- "Purpose of this section is to prevent quarreling or
  criminal persons from suddenly drawing weapons without
  notice to other persons." (1980)

- "Purpose of concealed weapons statutes, such as this
  section, is to prevent men in sudden quarrel or in
  commission of crime from drawing concealed weapons and
  using them without prior notice to their victims that they
  were armed, inasmuch as person attacked would behave one
  way if he knew his assailant was armed and perhaps another
  way if he could safely presume that assailant was
  unarmed." (1969)

- "The basic intent of the legislature as indicated in
  concealed weapon statute was that weapons should not be
  carried when they might be used to take lives." (1968)

_ "...the 'dwelling house' exception to the concealed weapons
  statute did not apply to defendant who was incarcerated in
  state prison at time of alleged commission of such
  offense." (1978)

- "Purpose or intent with which a weapon is carried is not an
  element of offense of carrying a concealed weapon." (1973)
- "Jury's determination that knife sharpening steel, which
  defendant... contended he carried only for protection...
  was a concealed weapon, was justified." (1971)

- "Straight razor in pocket of defendant was 'concealed'..."

- "Daggers, dirks, stilettos... and similar articles,
  designed for the purpose of bodily assault or defense, are
  generally recognized as 'dangerous weapons per se'..."

- "Pocket knives, razors, hammers, hatchets, wrenches,
  cutting tools, and other articles would constitute
  'dangerous weapons'... if used or carried for use as
  weapons." (1945)

- "An ordinary jackknife with a pointed blade 3-5/16 inches
  long was not a 'dangerous weapon...' in the absence of
  evidence that it was used or carried for use as a weapon."

- "Five-inch, double-edged, nonfolding knife was not a
  'hunting knife' within hunting knife exception..." (1989)

- "Defendant charged with carrying concealed weapon had
  burden of proving that hunting knife was 'adapted and
  carried as such'..." (1980)
