    Interesting video on knife laws in NYC...ask a cop and go to jail!

    Had no idea a slingshot is illegal in NYC.

    I've been working on borrowed time in NYC. Not cause of a slingshot, but my folding pocket knife (2-7/8 inch blade) is illegal according to NYC law. I was going to ask a cop about a fixed blade 3-1/4 inch knife on my backpack, but if there is a problem with it, you get arrested on the spot.


    Bottom line...if ANYONE can open your knife one handed...you go to jail!

    A reminder that this is not the place for political discussion.

    CPF ownership & staff maintain different forums & subforums for a reason - the first clue to this thread was that it wasn't in the Cafe or the Underground.

    Staff has the option of (1) Closing hot-button threads at the starting gate, or (2) Trusting membership to follow the basic principles of forum dialog. So next time anybody wants to complain about heavy-handed moderation, the parallel universe are the /appalling/ posts that were deleted by Staff so as to help maintain constructive aspects of the discussion.
