Re: NY Giveth & NY Taketh – New NY Knife Ban Signed Into Law

I notified all of the top tier martial artists that I follow on Facebook.

Folks outside the Rotten Apple may be safe, but given NYC's "creative" interpretations of ot...

Interesting. I don't own any "undetectable" knives. I DO own rubber and flexible plastic trainers for martial arts! These fools are going to be jailing martial artists for no reason!!! Get a hold of the dojos in NY and let them know. Spread the word by flier or mailing. This is an abomination. Sinc...

NY Giveth & NY Taketh – New NY Knife Ban Signed Into Law

While we were successful in repealing New York’s Gravity Knife Ban in an effort to solve the problems with New York City’s unconstitutional enforcement scheme against possessors of common folding knives, we were unable to stop another irrational knife ban from being put in place. Governor Cuomo has...

Good job for everyone involved including you Critter. That was a long and tenacious fight by all involved. There are no bigger big leagues here in the US and it has got to take a toll.

Oh, one last thing. It is NOT a money-maker for the city at all. It costs far more to prosecute these cases than any fines they get.

Re: DA & NYC Throw Hail Mary Mootness Argument in Knife Rights' SCOTUS Case

I really cannot say. Most NYPD officers I have met think it is BS, but most of them are longtimers and don't need the collars. It has been a "good" and popular collar because of the relatively high level of the crime for little effort on the officer's part. In any case, unfortunately, it is clearly ...

In a counter to Plaintiff's responsive brief to their mootness letter , New York City and DA Vance have hurled a Hail Mary brief at SCOTUS in an effort to defend their mootness claim. It would appear to fail on all accounts. They claim we did not challenge the MTA regulations in the original or ame...

After our huge win last week repealing New York State’s ban on Gravity Knives in order to stop the flagrantly discriminatory arrests and prosecutions in New York City of those who carry common folding knives, over 70,000 to date and disproportionately minorities, unrepentant Mayor Bill de Blasio an...
