Ignorance of the law is no excuse. You're traveling to a known anti-gun state, & you don't check the laws @ oh, half-a-dozen places that warn you that NY doesn't have reciprocity? There's a Marine in trouble as well.

If you carry, you have a responsibility to know the law. You are carrying the lives of your fellow citizens under your shirt, and if you can't obey the laws concerning that, then you go to gaol.

I feel sorry for her, and doubtless this will aid the forward march of the national concealed carry reciprocity legislation, but she broke a clearly articulated law that is well known (& hated) outside of the People's Republic of New York.

Merry Christmaunakah & Happy New Year!

NY does not honor TN permits.

She was in transit and is legally allowed to possess in her home state.

Never trust cops when it comes to guns. Especially NYPD. There's no such thing as an "oopsie" in that state.

Yet. This needs to be fixed.


Dammit, I read the title as "wouldn't", not "shouldn't" and was expecting good news in this thread.

I disagree, but since this is not GD, I will leave it at that.

You're right. Well, at least about the not GD part.
