Tourist Who Brought Loaded Gun to 9/11 Memorial Avoids Jail. Big deal. Obama mentor William Ayers once planted a bomb at The Pentagon and got away with it.

Graves has a legal permit to carry a weapon in Tennessee. But she didn’t know that New York’s gun laws are among the strictest in the nation

She tried to do the right thing by turning it into security — now she has a criminal record. Her carry permit may even be taken away in Tennessee. Why? Because she now has a criminal record. She may not even be able to practice medicine thanks to NYC. New York is for liberals — Conservatives are in deep shit there.

Whatever happened to the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011?

By a bipartisan vote of 272-154, the House passed a measure that will enable non-resident gun owners to carry a concealed firearm across state borders.
Forty-three Democrats joined 229 Republicans in supporting the measure, which had 245 co-sponsors. Just seven Republicans joined 147 Democrats in voting against the bill.

H.R. 822, the National Right-to-Carry Reciprocity Act of 2011, allows gun owners with valid state-issued concealed firearm permits to carry a concealed firearm in other states that also allow concealed carry.

Think we need a new republican congress?

Well, the bill passed the House, but I honestly doubt Reid even took it up in the Senate, it’s not something he does regularly.

Clearly I think this should have been thrown out, there was no intent to break the law, no one was put in harms way, it’s ridiculous that this is what NYC has become.

However, while I believe everyone should have the right to carry if they have a permit, it’s also a responsibility. When you’re traveling someplace, going into other states, ect, you need to know the local laws. She was from Tennessee, she could come to Pennsylvania with no problem and carry where she pleases, not New York though.

If you’re going to carry, you have to know the laws of the places you go to. There are no if, ands, or buts about it.

Just think if she had tried to cook up a good meal and serve it to some homeless people. Oh, the humanity!

This is an object lesson – never call unnecessary bureaucratic attention to yourself, especially in a statist hellhole like NYC. Once she found out that guns weren’t permitted, she should’ve quietly left the memorial ASAP and/or disposed of the gun somehow. The worst thing to do is be “honest” and above-board with these idiots and assume that you’ll be treated fairly. There’s just so many of them that are assholes and you don’t know who is one until it’s too late. Yeah, learn the gun rules before you go but try to avoid dealing with the bureaucracy unless absolutely necessary.

I hear San Diego’s nice, if you can stand California. Never been to that city myself.. San Fran’s hordes of homeless make for a hellhole–I never saw anything like that anywhere in NY

The people in charge don’t value honesty in any way. Look who they work for.
