Careful when you leave America

The president of the University of Sioux Falls in South Dakota went to NYC with his checked gun. But he didn’t know that NYC bans gun possession unless you go through a restrictive process for locals and bans it outright for out of towners. He’s suing Delta airlines for his own ignorance of the law.

    This reminds me of the return of one of the characters in Unintended Consequences to NYC from a lengthy stint as a white hunter in Africa.

    “But I’m the Head of a University! The Law doesn’t apply to ME!”

    Regarding NYC’s gun laws: “The general rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and the name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it; an unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed … An unconstitutional law is void.”
    Nobody, myself included, wants to be the test case but I think we should keep in mind that NYC’s gun laws are unconstitutional and in each of these cases the arrested individual is the victim of a crime.

    I agree with Steve. Good luck!

    Given that Delta’s employee called the cops on him, yes, they should pay through the nose.

    Also, are the NYC authorities trying to get HR 822 passed? University presidents typically know a bunch of politicians…

    I think the appropriate defense should be that his arrest violates his constitutional right against self incrimination. The NY law and the FAA regulation acting in conjunction compel him to identify himself as violating the law. There are numerous court decisions going up to the Supremes that you cannot convict someone of violating a law against exercising one’s 5th amendment rights against self-incrimination.
