    Like most things... it depends on the context.

    Is it illegal to possess them... I don't think so since you can buy them in any Army Navy store...

    Is it illegal to threaten someone with them? Yes
    Is it legal to be charged with a weapon if the police are searching you and find them... probably up to the officer's discretion.
    Not everything that makes you mad, sad or uncomfortable is legally actionable.

    I am not now nor ever was an attorney.

    Any statements I make are based purely upon my personal experiences and research which may or may not be accurate in a court of law.

    They're not illegal per se, but it is a crime to carry them concealed (OCGA 16-11-126) and it's illegal to have them within 1000 feet of a school (OCGA 16-11-127.1).
