Any true gravity knife, as the term is understood everywhere but in New York City, will still be prohibited by the “released from the handle or sheath thereof solely by the force of gravity” portion of the definition, but common folding knives could no longer be considered gravity knives. https://kniferights.org/legislative-update/new-york-gravity-knife-reform-bills-filed-again/ any fellow new york residents want to discuss the following? 1. how far is this from actually coming to fruition, and what are our barriers? who should we be calling/e-mailing now to move it a long? 2. if this passes, what is now legal to carry? spydie hole liner/frame/back locks? chris reeve and other thumb stud folders with liner/frame/back locks? non-assisted flippers seem to be the gray area now...? anything else i may have missed that could possibly become legal to carry? in my opinion axis locks and compression locks might still be considered gravity knives, since they do actually literally drop open when the button or compression is engaged. What do you guys think?
