New York State Senator Tony Avella plans to introduce a bill that would ban the possession of machetes. The bill is in response to several recent attacks involving these large blades, which in New York are considered the same as butcher knives. Under Avella’s proposal, New Yorkers in possession of a machete could be ticketed for a blade longer than 4 inches, face up to 15 days in jail and a $300 fine.
Not everyone agrees with Avella’s proposal
