NYCLU & NAACP LDF Write NY Governor in Support of Gravity Knife Reform Bill

From The Knife Rights Organization:

October 12, 2016: The New York Civil Liberties Union, the state’s ACLU affiliate, and the NAACP’s Legal Defense and Education Fund have sent New York Governor Cuomo letters in support of Knife Rights’ Gravity Knife and Switchblade Reform Bill, S6483-A/A9042-A. Knife Rights Chairman Doug Ritter said, “this is a terrific example of how organizations across the political spectrum can collaborate for criminal justice reform and secure basic fairness for all people.” Click for letters: NYCLUNAACP LDF

NYCLU and NAACP LDF join the Legal Aid Society, Brooklyn Defender Services; the Office of Court Administration, a number of unions, the NRA, as well as the New York Times Editorial Board, in support of this bill.

S6483-A/A9042-A add clarifying bias-toward closure exclusions to the state switchblade and gravity knife definitions, similar to that included in the revision to the Federal Switchblade Act that Knife Rights helped pass in 2009. This clarifying exclusion should prevent the bogus Gravity Knife arrests and prosecutions of honest law-abiding individuals in New York City who are carrying common folding knives, tools that are legal to carry everywhere else in the U.S.

Neither Gravity Knives nor Switchblades have a bias towards closure found in common folding knives to keep the blade safely closed in the pocket. Only in New York City has the NYPD and District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. abused the states’ gravity knife law to prosecute those carrying simple pocket knives by claiming they are illegal Gravity Knives.

The City’s Village Voice newspaper found two years ago that there had been as many as 60,000 gravity-knife prosecutions over the past decade! Hundreds of innocent pocket knife carriers are being arrested every week! Y

Ten powerful ways to act locally

From Living Freedom Blog:

By Claire Wolfe
October 4, 2016

We’re cruising down life’s highway and we find ourselves backed up in traffic by a colossal wreck. Glass and metal and blood and guts are strewn everywhere. Some survivors scream for help, while others lie bleeding out, pierced by steering wheels and shards of glass.

But never fear! First responders are already on the scene. The experts will soon handle the ghastly situation.

Except that the “experts” on this particular highway of life are standing there screeching at each other about their Twitter messages, tax returns, fat-shaming, mutual degrees of personal and financial corruption, and whether or not they enabled “bimbo eruptions.”

Other “experts” are off to the side debating about whether the best way to handle the wreck is by lowering interest rates for car makers and other favored financial interests. A separate group of experts nods their heads sagely while assuring each other that the bleeding victims will be best helped by 60% increases in their health insurance rates and a doubling of deductibles. While still others are waving their arms in histrionic debate about whether automobile manufacture discriminates against the differently gendered or cry that the sight of blood requires immediate creation of a “safe space,” not for the victims, but for them. When nearby motorists rush in to try to help the accident victims, they’re driven off by yet another band of first responders, who Tase them, beat them within an inch of their lives, accuse them of being anti-expert, and threaten to shoot them if they don’t instantly obey all orders, any orders, however meaningless, arbitrary, or just-plain wrong.

Meanwhile, the victims all die (or if they’re lucky, are left to recover on their own). The traffic backup grows ever longer. The drivers and passengers increasingly boil with rage, frustration — and sheer disbelief at what’s going on.

Thus our condition in this crazy moment of 2016.

The All-Inclusive Gun Culture

From America’s 1st Freedom:

Massachusetts has a reputation for being unfriendly to gun owners and Republicans, so I was a little surprised when I read about the recent gun safety class offered by the Leominster Republicans to members of the LGBT community. On “Cam & Co.” we’ve covered similar classes hosted by the Shiloh Shooting Sports range in Texas, but I didn’t expect to see a class offered in central Massachusetts. And much like the classes offered outside of Houston, the course put on by the Leominster Sportsmen’s Association was well attended. Almost two dozen folks turned out for the one-day class, and each one of them had his or her own story to tell about what brought them there.

The Sentinel & Enterprise newspaper interviewed several of the attendees and found couples wanting to learn about firearms so they could feel safe in their home, a young gay man hoping to learn about self-defense (he’s also taking mixed martial arts classes), a woman who was licensed to carry years ago but was spurred by the attack at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando to start training again, and many others.

One attendee, Mario Morales, has a cousin who was in the Pulse nightclub when the attack began. He says a conversation with his cousin, Jeffrey Rodriguez, afterwards convinced him that he should learn more about armed self-defense, telling the local paper that “actually hearing say that (if he) had a license to carry and some type of defense training, he might have been able to change the outcome” prompted him to attend the training event.

The organizer of the event, Gwen Meunier, is also the chairwoman of the Leominster GOP and said she saw the event as a way to share information about gun ownership, as well as spread a message of inclusiveness about the GOP. Whether she realizes it or not, she’s also helping to spread a message of inclusiveness about gun owners, along with the hundreds of others who have organized and set up similar training classes for members of the LGBT community over the past few months. Not only are these individuals helping people get over their fear of firearms and become trained and competent, they’re also letting people know that the vast majority of gun owners are welcoming of newcomers to the range and to the gun store.
