You would think that NY politicians could find more useful tasks to occupy their time.


http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/10/23/nyc-proposal-renders-bad-drivers-debtors-unfit-guns/


New York hasn't even passed proposed amendments to the city's gun restrictions, but the proposal is already facing legal scrutiny.

New York City residents who want to own a gun may soon be denied permits if they are litterbugs, if they are bad drivers, or if they have fallen behind on a few bills.

Under proposed revisions to the police department's handgun, rifle and shotgun permit procedures, the NYPD can reject gun license applicants for a number of reasons, including:

If they have been arrested or convicted of almost any "violation," in any state; having a "poor driving history"; having been fired for "circumstances that demonstrate lack of good judgment"; having "failed to pay legally required debts"; being deemed to lack "good moral character"; or if any other information demonstrates "other good cause for the denial of the permit."

Critics say many of the restrictions are vague, have nothing to do with one's fitness to own a gun and are unconstitutional.

Supporters say the new restrictions will make gun purchasing more efficient and don't give the NYPD any more power than it already has.

How does NYC plan on enforcing this on gang members and drug dealers?

Just like terrorists, there aren't any gangs or drug dealers, they are misunderstood minorities.

On the bright side, some NYC have some deep pockets and can fight such a law.

It seems like NYC is playing with fire here, trying to restrict a constitutionally protected right based on speeding tickets and bad debt. It's almost like they want the judiciary to re-write the laws.

If this passes look for legislatures in other (liberal) states to make a go at it too.

Bet someone in the Ca legislature is already taking notes and writing a proposal.

Also, surprisingly IN before the resident statists who think that this is a good idea. After all, people who get traffic tickets, fired from jobs or have poor credit are of "poor moral character" and should not be allowed to own firearms.

Instead of prohibiting these people from owning guns, they should be prohibited from voting or running for office.
