Courtesy of our illustrious Governor, Andrew "Angry Eyes" Cuomo!
If you refer to my post of 5 Dec,
you will see there was a bill to modify an old NY knife law that allowed Police, primarily in NYC, to arrest people in possession of one hand opening knives by calling them Gravity Knives (even if they weren't). After letting the Bill sit on his desk for months, at the absolute last moment of 2016, old Angry Eyes decided to veto the bill.
However since the Bill was passed almost unanimously in both the State Senate as well as the Democratic party dominated Assembly, an override would be unstoppable.
My best guess is that Cuomo is counting on the override passing,at which point he can just say he did his job by vetoing the bill, and that there was nothing he could do.
As far as I'm concerned, as long as the Bill goes through, I don't give a shit what machinations it has to go through.
Especially since it's going to piss off The NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio. :-)
