    You can here those NYC politicians scramble because they know the which way the wind is blowing…

    I bet the Marine being charged will not take the deal…

    They’ll still be Firearms Violations, right? And they still can get in trouble in their home states over their CCW permits because it’s Firearms Violations, right? And the New York D.A. will still go after citizens who dare to violate the Sullivan Act, even though it holds no water outside the city limits, right?

    Doesn’t sound like a win to me.

    The Tea Party guy ended up with disorderly conduct so it may not affect his permit. Although being a CA permit sneezing might affect it.

    The law is the law, except when it’s not. People are punished for breaking the law, except when they aren’t.
    Gun laws are not criminal laws, they are merely political laws, and are enforced or not enforced according to the politics of the situation, and not according to the specifics of the law.

    A few years ago they would have just thrown the book at her. Now they feel pressure to plea down to what is essentially a traffic ticket. That’s not ideal, but it’s progress, and if they didn’t have Congress threatening them with the passage of HR822, and didn’t have the threat of a lawsuit to force them to act like they are part of America, there’s no way these folks would be getting off.

    No. Disorderly conduct in New York is basically a traffic ticket.

    He’d be foolish not to take the deal.

    Maybe if enough of us do it, we’ll overwhelm their system and they’ll get tired of all the paperwork and change their idiotic laws.

    But the cops won’t give them back their guns.

    We plan on going to Maine for our July vacation. We worry about being stuck in La Guarda airport with those shitbird cops and my CCW gun in the luggage.

    Gotta make real sure our flight does NOT have any stop at any NY airport. Screw them.

    @Paul

    It would suck to lose a gun, but if I were in their shoes that’d be the least of my worries. I’d just be thankful to not end up in prison, or even an expensive trial lol

    Guns are cheap by comparison IMO

    Or they’ll single someone out to make an example of, which is more likely. They will only change when change is forced on them by outside forces; either the Courts or Congress.

    @Paul
    If your flight *does* stop at LaGuardia airport, do *NOT* take possession of the case containing the gun. Make the airline hold it — they did after all contract to deliver it to your destination.

  14. Paul Says:

    Will do Bob. Thanks.

    Won’t take possession till I’m in Maine!
