Stossel: NYC Government Traumatizes Gun Owners



It unfortunately is illegal to bring a firearm into New York State without having a permit to possess it there. The law is confusing and people are arrested every day for unknowingly breaking their law.

While it is every individual's responsibility to at least gain a basic understanding of the laws of the place they're traveling to, it is egregious that NY and other jurisdictions nail well-meaning people like this and locking them up, rather than exercising discretion.

This is why we all need to be lawyers, investigators, Indian Chiefs too.

It ain't easy being pro 2A.

His last sentence sums it up.

At least this is getting some exposure which may help make everyone aware of the traps.
Perhaps it will save someone.
NY has been on my "do not visit" list for quite some time. So has DC.
The prosecutors are sworn to uphold the law, even if they hate it.
The despair & anger should be turned on the legislators both here and in NY.


My one worry is that I'll be on a flight, on which I am carrying firearms/accessories banned in NY or NJ, somehow diverted to NY or NJ

May be best to just not take possession of the luggage in that case, cheaper to buy a new firearm than spend $15K on a lawyer.

I believe some one was charged, and convicted, for doing just that (taking possession of a firearm).

District Attorneys for the most part, are all angling for elected office. There are definitely some who are willing to be good public servants, but all too many use the position as a stepping stone to being elected mayor, governor or attorney general.

Did that D.A. ever say he doesn't like New York's or NYC's gun laws? I didn't hear it if he did.
