Weapons are often the subject of criminal law and of surveillance. There are many people in situations where it is within their, or our, interest to be armed, but being caught with a weapon would be incriminating.

Three of the solutions of this are:
>hiding the existence of the weapon (generally ineffective if they are aware you may possess weapons, could be effective if no-one is doing a thorough search)
>hiding the purpose of weapon (obfuscation: think of a walking cane with a weapon concealed within. Probably ineffective if they know what they are looking for or are doing a thorough search)
>plausible deniability: having a believable excuse for possessing the weapon, or its components, at least if not in extreme amounts ("I have ammonium nitrate to fertilize my plants", "I have potassium nitrate as stump remover and sugar as a cooking ingredient", "I have petroleum in plastic cans from when fuel prices skyrocketed", "I am legally allowed to own airsoft rifles for recreational purposes", "Vodka isn't illegal and nor are old rags I need when painting.")

What are some plausibly deniable weapons? For the sake of slow board, it's fine to list highly-available typical protest weapons like Molotov cocktails (alcohol/petroleum are usually legal and unsuspicious when disassembled), laser beams and power-tools like nail guns, but I'm curious to see what the most useful weapons are that are completely unsuspicious when disassembled.

Example scenario: pigs know you are an organized radical anti-capitalist and find an excuse to do a general search, hoping to find drugs or unregistered guns or something. What, in it's disassembled form if necessary, could evade their suspicion?

>What, in it's disassembled form if necessary, could evade their suspicion?
A metal bike lock can fuck someone up, but you need to have a bike for someone to not question it
Baseball bat is good too. Keep some softballs and a glove in your car so you have plausible deniability
A pocket knife with a small blade, something where you can legally carry it around.

The problem you're gonna run into here is twofold. One, cops are smart and pretty good at figuring out if something is able to be quickly assembled and used as a weapon. Two, having the components of a weapon quickly available to assemble oftentimes can get you charged with conspiracy or intent to commit a crime. Having a bunch of nitric acid and hexamine tablets isn't going to look good if you're not a chemist/outdoorsman combo. Hell, a plastic auto sear is legally a machine gun even if you don't own a firearm to put it in.

Really though, if you're seriously considering maiming or killing someone as a political statement, then go big or go home because you're clearly past the point of caring about plausible deniability.

Good point, but that's where having a good lawyer would come in. Anti-capitalist or not, lawyers will still defend you if you cough up the cash.

Lawyers can only do so much, anon. If the cops bust down your door and you have a 3D printed suppressor and a yankee boogle sitting next to your 11.5" upper, you're gonna go to jail.

and this is why, leftypol, u gotta always store illegal things someplace you do not own, if possible. If it's very important to you, make sure to not track residues into your home or on your clothes if you cannot afford to get caught and you think you could be searched. There are levels to it though, and you should 100% try to learn what cops generally do for what crimes, and what departments would be involved in your crimes (e.g. local police, parole officer, state troopers, highway patrol, FBI, ATF, border patrol). If you want to find info/lit on this stuff, probably go check around militant eco anarchist spaces (Tor pls), since they're the ones in the west doing sketchy shit and trying to pass on knowledge to other activists.
