(WETM) – Legislation prohibiting the manufacture, shipment, and possession of knives that are undetectable by a metal detector was signed Tuesday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
A misdemeanor and a possible year in jail will now be given to anyone in the possession of knives not detectable by a metal detector.
The summary under the new legislation removes gravity knives that are dangerous weapons from certain uses and of the penal law relating to firearms and other dangerous weapons.
This new law will go into effect on November 1, 2019.
