The bill to repeal New York’s Gravity Knife Ban, A5944, which would stop the bogus arrests and prosecutions on Gravity Knife charges of knife owners carrying common folding knives in New York City has been transmitted to Governor Cuomo. If you live, work or travel in New York CALL the Governor TODAY and ask him to STOP the OUTRAGEOUS arrests and prosecutions in New York City!

The Governor now has 10 days (excluding Sunday) to sign or veto the bill, or allow it to become law without his signature.


While Gov. Cuomo vetoed the previous two overwhelmingly passed similar bills (2016 & 2017), in significant part due to the opposition of New York County District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. who has championed his prosecutions under the law, even Vance has indicated he will not object to this bill. Gov. Cuomo’s own Attorney General has come out in support of this bill, saying, “I believe it’s high time that gravity knives be removed from the penal code.”

Martin LaFalce of the Legal Aid Society, who has written a number of Amicus Briefs in support of Knife Rights Federal civil rights lawsuit challenging NYC’s and Vance’s discriminatory enforcement of the law against owners of common folding knives, said, “this is the most unfair law-enforcement practice in New York state.”

Knife Rights’ longtime allies in this effort, sponsors Assemblyman Dan Quart and Senator Diane Savino and Senator Robert Jackson, are to be congratulated for gaining unanimous approval of this bill this time around.

LET’S GET THIS DONE! Regardless of your personal views of Governor Cuomo or his politics on any other issue, if you live, work or travel in New York please CALL Governor Cuomo TODAY and simply deliver the message:

“I am calling to respectfully request that Governor Cuomo please sign A5944 to stop the arrests of thousands of people every year for simply possessing a common pocket knife,” and then thank whoever has answered.


That’s it! Nothing More! Please be POLITE and RESPECTFUL and REMAIN ON POINT.

THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BERATE THE GOVERNOR ABOUT ANY OTHER POLITICAL ISSUES – STAY ON MESSAGE!

CALL Governor Cuomo TODAY at:

518-474-8390 and Press #1
(Depending on call volume or if after hours, you may
be asked to leave a message. That’s okay.)

If you are a New York state resident, you can SEND AN EMAIL to Gov. Cuomo using Knife Rights Legislative Action Center.

Again, please be POLITE and RESPECTFUL and REMAIN ON POINT; just deliver the message,”I am calling to respectfully request that Governor Cuomo please sign A5944 to stop the arrests of thousands of people every year for simply possessing a common pocket knife” and then thank whoever has answered. That’s it, keep it short, simple and ON POINT and above all BE POLITE and RESPECTFUL.
