  • NY knife law struck down as unconstitutional

    A federal judge ruled on Thursday that the state law that bans “gravity” knives is unconstitutional because it’s too difficult to enforce.
    Federal District Judge Paul Crotty specifically mentioned a so-called “wrist-flick test” used by Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance’s office.
    The test, used by cops who attempt to open the knife by flipping it, is arbitrary and shows that the law is too difficult to enforce, the judge said.
    “The wrist-flick test is just absurd,” said Martin LaFalce of The Legal Aid Society. “It’s absurd that criminal liability turns on the athletic skill of individual officers.”

    Perhaps this "law is unenforceable due to being arbitrary and unclear" will eventually make a case against the safe act?

    I'm not a lawyer, but 'arbitrary and unclear' seems more likely to strike down a law than 'too difficult to enforce'.

      I would think that this ruling would definitely set a legal precedent based on “arbitrary and unclear.”
