The cliche says that politics makes strange bedfellows. In few cases has this been proven more true than the multi-year effort to stop NYC’s unjust “Gravity Knife” prosecutions. A coalition including the Village Voice, NYCLU, and NAACP on the left has joined forces with the Wall Street Journal, NRA, and Knife Rights among others on the right, to twice see legislation passed in Albany, only to fall victim to Governor Cuomo’s veto pen.
VICE News is not an outlet that is typically friendly to Second Amendment issues. In fact, liberal media outlets have frequently flat out lied to further their hoplophobic ambitions. So Knife Rights’ Chairman Doug Ritter was figuratively entering a lions’ den when he agreed to sit for an interview with VICE.
Actually, the piece seems to be an incredibly effective explanation of both the injustice and outright ridiculousness of NYC Gravity Knife prosecution.
“The sun shines on a dog’s ass sometimes”, and the tailend of the VICE News crew is glowing brightly for once.
