In response to Governor Cuomo’s signing of Assembly Bill 5944, removing criminal sanctions associated with possessing gravity knives, VOCAL-NY released the following statement, attributable to VOCAL-NY Community Leader Mark Moses.
“As someone who was arrested and spent time in jail for carrying a knife I used as a construction worker, I think this law should have been repealed long ago. That said, I’m glad the Governor finally signed this law so that others coming up behind me don’t need to go through what happened to me.”
