        AN ACT to amend the penal law, in  relation  to  the  definitions  of  a
          switchblade knife and a gravity knife
 
          The  People of the State of New York, represented in Senate and Assem-
        bly, do enact as follows:
 
     1    Section 1. Subdivisions 4 and 5 of section 265.00 of the penal law are
     2  amended to read as follows:
     3    4. "Switchblade knife" means any knife which has a blade  which  opens
     4  automatically  by  hand  pressure  applied  to a button, spring or other
     5  device in the handle of the knife.  "Switchblade knife" does not include
     6  a knife that has a spring, detent, or other mechanism designed to create
     7  a bias toward closure and that requires exertion applied to the blade by
     8  hand, wrist, or arm to overcome the bias toward  closure  and  open  the
     9  knife.
    10    5. "Gravity knife" means any knife which has a blade which is released
    11  from  the handle or sheath thereof by the force of gravity or the appli-
    12  cation of centrifugal force which, when released, is locked in place  by
    13  means  of a button, spring, lever or other device.  "Gravity knife" does
    14  not include a knife that has  a  spring,  detent,  or  other  mechanism,
    15  including  but not limited to resistance to opening designed to create a
    16  bias toward closure and that requires exertion applied to the  blade  by
    17  hand,  wrist,  or  arm  to overcome the bias toward closure and open the
    18  knife.
    19    § 2. This act shall take effect immediately.
 
         EXPLANATION--Matter in italics (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                              [ ] is old law to be omitted.
                                                                   LBD11809-03-6
