New York City & other large felony traps

Something is really wrong when we allowed cities such as NYC or San Francisco or any other large city to enact their own laws contrary to their own state laws regarding guns.



What is the max penalty the city of new york can bring against someone who violates the city laws on guns?

Can they bring felony charges as a city?

When I came to Pa from jersey I started the FFL from the house, the township lawyer made me jump through a lot of hoops to get the letter for the ATF.

Once I showed up at the town meeting the Township supervisor was pissed, he said the township did not have the right to make me get a cond Use CO as it was covered under Pa home occupations and preempted by state laws regarding firearm dealings.

The lawyer started pissing and moaning and saying "well it is guns"



Pa has a very strong preemptive law on anyone besides the state legislators making gun laws

. . . and sometimes the state (CO) fixes it, but a judge allows the city (Denver) to do it anyway.
