New York City locks up people for carrying guns legally licensed by other states

Have a gun license? Plan to bring your gun to my hometown? Don’t.

Mean New York authorities will make your life miserable.

Patricia Jordan and her daughter flew here from her home state of Georgia. She wanted her gun nearby for protection.

Jordan obeyed all the Transportation Security Administration’s rules: She put her gun in a locked TSA-approved case with its bullets separate. She informed the airline that she had a gun. The airline had no problem with that.

    The gun laws in N.Y., Chicago, and Los Angeles are the reason there are NO CRIMES involving guns in those cities! And if you believe that…………….

    N.Y. isn’t part of America anymore, I know many won’t like that statement but one has to wonder, how do the Mayors and leaders of California, N.Y., Chicago, etc get elected? Isn’t it the people who vote them in? Or are they all being done in by voter fraud? Something is wrong somewhere. These acts against the rights of people are very much like living in a Communist country. You can’t do this, you can’t eat this, you can’t do that yet your leaders do what they damned well please. Your leaders are surrounded by gated communities and armed security. isn’t that what happens in Communist countries?

    N. Korean tactics, for sure.

    You couldn’t pay me to go to NYC, DC, Chicago, San Francisco, Detriot and other leftist ghettos. Let them sink in their own sewage.

    Here is a case of uniformed law makers passing laws that they don’t understand and law enforcement following the letter of the law. There were mistakes made by the gun owners, TBS rule only cover the handling of fire arms while on the plane and have nothing to do with local laws. If you are going somewhere with your gun checkout the local laws. That said in this case the local laws are stupid. The women was transporting a legal weapon in a responsible fashion, she was open about it and not trying to get away with something. At the very most they should have taken the bullets, a weapon without bullets is a paperweight. Her arrest was uncalled for but it wasn’t completely the officers fault when you have laws written by people who don’t understand the subject they are passing laws on. In the second case even the police were being just plain stupid. I’m not big second amendment person and I believe that taking a gun to New York isn’t the smartest thing to do but in both these cases it was the law and how it was enforced that were wrong not the citizens.

    These cases point out a need for standardized rule nationally on some of the basics in dealing with firearms. Just having a standard definition for what is a weapon, who can legally own them, and how to transport and store them would make sense. They did it with traffic laws years ago. Why not the basics of gun handling.

    Funny how a city so into ignoring Federal laws when it comes to illegal aliens is also so diligent in enforcing laws being obeyed by Citizens. Could you imagine the uproar if these NY Police Officers were to arrest an illegal with the same fervor as they go after Citizens trying to obey the laws and rules of TSA while visiting their city? The NRA should issue a “travel warning” to gun owners who try to visit NYC.

    1. bobnstuff says:

      The NRA should educate gun owners about local laws and how to travel with a weapon. At one time the NRA was all about education and gun and hunting safety. That being said most gun owners are not NRA members.

      1. Bob says:

        The NRA does educate people on gun laws. These people WERE complying with the laws for traveling with fire arms. They were following all regulations required by the TSA and the NY Police still went after them. Liberals were all giddy when the USSS said each state must recognize the laws of other states when it came to Gay Marriage, why should they not respect the laws of other states here? If GA disagreed with NY issuing a license for Gay Marriage, they would still have to acknowledge it. I’m not saying NY should be forced to issue a carry permit for one issued out of state, but if the person is not waving it around, they should at lease respect and honor they were legally carrying and not make it a felony. Explain why the NY police actions should be supported and lauded while the same jurisdiction is refusing to comply with Federal Immigration laws? Sounds like “selective enforcement only of laws we agree with” to me.

        1. bobnstuff says:

          In case you missed it I agree with with you. We need a standard for basic gun laws. We did it for motor vehicles, marriage and a number of other things. In the case of the gun clip, I can’t even think why there was a problem at all.

          1. Bob says:

            You know that in some states, including the Peoples Republic of Maryland, carrying a charged magazine is considered carrying a loaded weapon, even if you do not have the gun with you? You are right in that there are too many stupid gun laws that need to go. Liberals have tried legislating guns, have tried taxing guns and ammo, but have not tried education. We had shooting clubs in both my High School and Junior High back in the 70’s, and NO school shootings at the schools.

          2. bobnstuff says:

            It wasn’t so much the PC police as the students themselves that did in the shooting clubs. Kids today would rather shot zombies on a computer then go shoot a real gun. Plus the insurance was killing the schools. I have no problems with some controls over guns but the problem is you don’t have reasonable people on either side working on it. It only seem you have the no controls or total control people. We need realistic rule made by thinking people who understand what the real problems are and are open minded on finding solutions. We have to many gun deaths in this country, if it was from any other cause something would be done about it. There has to be solution but I haven’t a clue what it is. I know I don’t want to give up my guns.

            Kids today are not like we were, we were taught manners, morals and went to church on Sundays and new what work was at a pretty young age, now most are not worth killing, no morals, won’t work, never been in a church, no parents that give a shi$ or never spend any time with them, rather sit in front of a TV and play video games, the worst thing that ever happen to America! Kids are basically babies till their about 25 now and useless as he$$ !!

          4. bobnstuff says:

            I did my part to with my own children to raise good people and now they are doing the same. All my kids had jobs in high school, did volunteer work and learned the difference between right and wrong. They are now, I happy to say, doing the same with their kids.

          5. Rodney Steward says:

            Well that is really great, glad to see that with anyone that acts like real parents!

          6. bobnstuff says:

            There are more good parents out there then you would guess from watching the news. I see the kids on my road and all but one house did a pretty good job. Of course there is always that one family that causes problem. The good thing on my road is they sent them all to jail finally, Sold their house so I hope never to see them again. There is hope or at least I like to think that.

          7. Rodney Steward says:

            Must have been a bad crew if they went to jail, LOL! Yes there are many good families, but far to many that are not, and it shows, their kids stay in trouble all the time and blame everybody else for their own lack of parenting!!

          8. If American political education was everything it should be, it would be clear that any law that infringes on the right to keep and bear arms is a violation of the Constitution, and so, null and void under Marbury v Madison.

      2. Rodney Steward says:

        As usual bobby, WRONG, most people in the NRA are already educated with firearms, such as military, police, security guards, deer hunters that have to take hunters safety courses! And your pistol permit tells you on the back the states that will honor your states permit!! So you’re not very educated in the field, best just go back to sleep!

        1. bobnstuff says:

          What I said was that most gun owners are not NRA members. My brother is an NRA instructor.

          1. Rodney Steward says:

            I use to be an instructor myself!! Maybe not all are members, but there are almost 5 million people that are, I’m a life time member myself!

          2. bobnstuff says:

            I remember.
