NJ Assn sues NY port authority over abuse of gunowner
Posted by David Hardy · 27 February 2006 08:15 AM
The Association of New Jersey Rifle & Pistol Clubs, Inc. has sued the NY & NJ Port Authority (which administers the airports around there) over the false arrest of a Utah gunowner.

Basically, Gregg Revell was scheduled on a flight from Salt Lake City to Allentown, PA, connecting in Newark, NJ (which is near NYC). He possessed a firearm in conformance with the 1986 Firearm Owners' Protection Act (which allows a person to take a firearm interstate if it is legal where the journey begins and ends and it is unloaded and secured along the way). Due to airline error, he missed the connection in Newark, and the airline required him to claim his baggage there. When he tried to check in again, and declared the firearm as required by FAA regulation, he was arrested under the local gun laws and spent five days in a hellhole of an NJ jail (where friendly inmates told him that his life was in danger -- the real thugs might just kill him for the fun of it).

But we all know the "peaceable journey" laws would prohibit this.

I hear it happens all the time in NY. Poor bastards on hunting trip or show missing a flight and then getting snaged on check in of the new flight. NRA took NYC to court about 4 months ago for a guy flying from texas to Maine and it was pretty nasty from what i read.

Anyplace north of Fredericksburg is inherently bad.

From what I understand they have tried to snatch up a few LEOs that were carrying lawfully under nationwide CCW. Apparently they now draw down on the LEO, take the weapon, cuff them, and detain them until they actually contact an adminstrator from the LEO's department and get confirmation the are an LEO and their ID is valid.

I see you dont get out much. Despite the usual suspects north of you there are also some states which surpass VA in regard to gun friendliness and have low taxes to boot. In fact NH (my former home) is very gun friendly and the cost of living is low as are taxes, govt is very small and crime is very low (much less than VA). If it werent for the long cold winter it would br the perfect place to live.

Hey...I couldnt let it pass w/o comment. While there are a lot of anit-gun dingbats north of you all there are still places where freedom is protected and cherished. Granted there arent many but those that remain are noteworthy. I wanted to correct that myth that any place N of the Mason Dixon is anti-gun, democrat and (therefore) evil.

ETA: Just to stir the pot...wander on over the the new england HTF and read about the CT police chiefs that want colored firearms outlawed. To that end they got a bill drafted and all. The name Barney Fife comes to mind as Im sure theyre on par w/ his character. I better stop now before I get banned.

Oh come on now...you all get snow and cold in VA the only differnce is magnitude (VA vs NH). A little cold never killed anyone. Hey, at least w/ cold you can dress up until youre warm but when its hot you can only take so much off to cool down.

Some of the gals I dated when I was younger were not award winners but I'm a little more selective than that now
