In New York State you have to be in law enforcement, an EMT, or have only one working hand to legally own what is commonly called a switchblade or out-the-front (OTF) knife or gravity knife.
This is, of course, nuts. I can buy and carry a fixed-blade knife in a sheath -- which is a faster draw than any auto -- but that's not considered illegal.
