Politics, Strange bedfellows, and Archaic Knife Laws in NYC

Under the leadership of Cy Vance Jr. as District attorney, police have for the past 5 years or more been interpreting a 60+ year old law designed to take switchblades off the street to lock people up for carrying something as mundane as a Swiss Army knife. Owing to the fact that the bulk of the arrests, and the resulting criminal records, have fallen excessively on minorities in the city, there has been a call for a change.
A bill has since wound it's way through the NY state Assembly and Senate was passed in June of this year. The bill was to modify and clarify the true definition of what a 'Gravity Knife' is or isn't. The bill has yet to reach the the Governors desk for signing.

There is pressure, mostly from the Mayor, District Attorney and Police Commissioner of NYC not to sign it. Gov. Cuomo has not taken a stand either way. In actuality it may not matter. The Bill passed both house with overwhelming majorities. The vote was 99 to 12 in the Assembly, and unanimous in the Senate, setting up even a veto for an easy override that would allow the Bill to become Law.

To me, the best and most interesting part of this is the odd collection of disparate parties that came together from various political special interest groups. And If I can benefit from an 'Identity Politics' based piece of legislation, I'm certainly not going to complain.

Interesting times indeed.

How Do You Stick It To Liberal News Media Outlets?

You use the internet and their own APPS of course.

Glad to see the conservatives in this country are finally learning to use modern social media to make life miserable for the leftist Liberal media news outlets.
Use their own tactics against them. They hate that! :-)

And On The Keeping Manufacturing Jobs Here In The US

Do you think this would have happened if Hillary was elected?

And just as a reminder, FORD was the only US automaker not to take a straight bailout from the Obama Administration, only a loan which they repaid, and wound up doing better than either GM or Chrysler.

Anybody Ever Heard Of Titanpointe?

Neither had I until I found the article linked below. Right in the heart of Manhattan since 1974, it's like something out of a science fiction novel that predates the revelations of Edward Snowden regarding the government spying on just about everyone and everything.

Hidden in plain sight.

South Of The Border Part ? (It's been so long I forgot what this part number should be)

Apparently things are getting difficult for street criminals in Old Mexico. The citizens are tired of the Police only having a 98% success rate at catching violent street criminals.
As for this particular blog post, I'll just call it 'The Avenger Strikes'.
