Busy Week in New York Battleground for Knife Rights

This week Knife Rights was busy fighting New York City’s persecution of knife owners on two fronts. Oral argument in the appeal of Knife Rights’ Federal Civil Rights case against New York City and District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., which was dismissed on standing grounds, was held on January 13 in New York City. At the same time, Knife Rights was working with Manhattan Assemblyman Dan Quart to introduce legislation that could go a long way towards addressing the problem in New York City. Below please find reports on both activities.
