    I know. I grew up in New York state. If possession of this knife is punishable by law... Then the stores are not only in possession; they are selling contraband weapons. In a lawful government you can't have it both ways...

    It isn’t a “switch blade mechanism”. It’s “assisted opening”. And there is a difference.

    That utility knife is not a switch blade it is a one handed opening and the blade (razor) must be manually opened all the way before it locks

    A gravity knife usually has the blade contained in the handle and when a release is pressed and the knife is pointing down the blade will simply slide out

    An automatic opening knife is one that at the push of a release will snap all the way open and lock by way of a spring

    There are out the front automatic knives as well

    people can be arrested in NYC for standing around-----in possession of
    "burglary tool"-----which is not much more than a crow bar. Also---one can be arrested for being in possession of a little glass decorative pipe thing-----a little mirror -----and a razor blade. It is the apparatus for debasing heroin to make
    CRACK-----or whatevah.

    New York is a shithole that uses its citizenry to keep its prison industry stocked. Anyone who stays living under those conditions is an idiot, rich, or incapable of escaping.
