    Has there been a test case for this???

    I always carry my Benchmade automatic in my left front trouser pocket with the clip on the outside- I just have too much other stuff on my right side, so finding my knife would be much harder if I carried it on the right.

    Good read, thanks.

    I laughed at the part where you apparently can't openly carry a knife with the clip exposed. A folding knife clipped in a right front pocket is commonplace in the south.

    The author didn't mention hollow points; I thought that was a "thing" up there.

    Hey, hey, hey. That’s being culturally inappropriate.

    Above is a good story on LEOSA carry in NY, pretty recent...2021. I have carried many times with no issues, but I was also on official travel, so I have no experience with tourist carry.

    Post in the New York section and you will get the answers to your questions. For the most part sworn active officer can carry under HR 218. Statue of Liberty should be OK to carry as it is Fed controlled and they are, or at least were LEO friendly. Empire State Building has long been a no go except for NYPD as are other locations. Have been out of NY for years now so not absolutely up to date on all regs.

    I'm thankful I live in a free part of the country- we have Constitutional Carry, so even my wife can carry with no permit, and no magazine or ammo restrictions.

    Maybe...maybe not. The law is somewhat vague when it comes to many things (especially like magazine capacity and ammunition type) and permits the states leeway on restrictions. The other problem is that the law has never really been tested in court. It MIGHT overrule various state and local laws on some restrictions, but that would require a test case (and nobody wants to be the test case).
