Does this system of many "states" within a country not bother America? How can Americans be so happy living such different lives, following some similar rules under one name?

Is any state a burden to the others?

That's delving into a very complex issue. The entire system of government in the United States is based around the idea of very individualistic states using a federal government as an ultimate, but less intrinsic power. The central government was formed with a set of rules on what the states could and could not do- and if it wasn't expressly stated that it could or could not be done then it was considered up for interpretation by a state government unless ruled upon by a federal court. The idea was to allow smaller community diversity but without the original intent of the union to be sullied. Also, the revolutionaries who formed the US were extremely wary of a large central government. Because of this, most Americans support the right of states to create and interpret laws differently. The problem comes from the fact that the US has formed a large central government despite that and the states have often "interpreted" national law in such a way as to largely dis-acknowledge it. With those two factors combined, you get a leviathan like government with laws so bizarre and complicated that a great deal of people can easily violate a law without knowing that they have. Stack on an ineffective court system, an extremely rightist view on certain moral ambiguities, and a country with a far left that swung so far left they became another right- and you have the abomination that is American law.

In the UK if your found with a knife, even for work related purposes, you can still be charged. Rarely enough, but still happens often. Id like to carry a knife for protection sometimes but if i was caught randomly via a search by the police id be in massive trouble.

Im from Northern ireland as well so you can often be searched randomly.

Colorado is considered one of the more liberal states when it comes to the procurement and possession of weapons. It's not like that in most other states. But, often times in Colorado, somebody tried with illegally carrying a knife will be dismissed since the prosecution can't prove intent to use it in a criminal act as a large number of people carry knives as a tool. Laws in the US are needlessly complex. For Example- as a nineteen year old in Colorado I cannot legally conceal a handgun on my person. However, if I were to be hunting with a legal license then that would be acceptable. But, once my legal right to hunt terminates, so does my right to conceal. It's very easy to unknowingly transition from legal possession to illegal possession in the US. Another good example is reciprocity laws regarding the travel across boarder. Many states consider a license to carry a firearm within another state to be legal right to carry in theirs, others do not. So, if I wanted to take my AK-47 from Colorado to Indiana, then it would be fine were those two states conjoined and there'd be no problem- but because Illinois is between the two states, It would not be legal for me to transport that firearm from my current residence to the one I am transitioning to since the state i have to pass through recognizes that same firearm that is legal in Colorado as illegal in their state.
