Well really what I'm asking is the possession laws for picks in each state the only law it falls under in most states is possession of burglary tools or something named similar. The laws are mosly the same but have minor differences. I can't seem to find them all....plus in Maryland the law is covered in a different place which is the same as washington I believe so those have got me stuck in the mud. On top of that I can't read every languge laws are printed in all over the world so knowing that there are many ppl who speak many languages here I thought I would ask if they could help me find laws that cover this subject in other countries. I am looking for either the full laws if they could be posted or the code they fall under but any help is much appreciated.

Everyone with an interest in picking but the core market is people new to locksmithing and locksmith shop owners. It seems that even shop owners only have a general idea of the law they must deal with and many have shown interest in my currant writing project. It will probably be released in ebook format untill I can afford to have it published in hardcover but you never know.

Tennessee laws!
I've searched for a week now for state laws on possession of lock picks in the state of Tennessee, and you're the first person I've found who knows them. If you could give me a summary or a link to where you found them or ANYTHING, it would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
