So only blacks and latinos carry knives in NYC?

Over the past 60 years, tens of thousands of black and Latino New Yorkers have been arrested for carrying so-called gravity knives — small, easy-to-access blades that are used by everyone from stagehands to steelworkers.

But on Thursday, in another demonstration of New York’s surging progressive wing’s influence, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo ended that practice, signing a bill to remove such knives from the category of “deadly weapons,” a designation reserved for guns, daggers and switchblades, and allow their possession.

    The quote from the first Godfather movie haunts me….”I hoped you could be Senator Corleone…..Governor…Corleone”….”Don’t worry Pop….we’ll get there”…..here’s evidence that they did….

    What’s to stop di Blasio and NYFC from enacting their own local “gravity knife” ban?

    This is progressive. Natch, they required commissions, studies, decades “of community input”. And spokesmodels.

    And a government judge to make it right.

    If an astronaut takes a gravity knife to the international space station is it still called a gravity knife?

    Black and Latino “knife criminals” commit their crimes in NYC the old-fashioned way, one victim at a time. Artisanal anti-social acts as the hipsters might say.

    In NYC the big-league criminals are white and white-when-convenient. They use Wall Street, the news media, the courts, academia, think tanks, nonprofits and foundations to loot this country wholesale, and to destroy its morals and cultural values.

Play nice.
