Posted on 10/05/2017 2:59:24 AM PDT by RC one
The scourge of tourists who think they can bring their guns to New York City, despite the fact that our city has some of the toughest gun laws in the country, continued with an arrest on Sunday morning.
The latest offender is Terell Coleman of Georgia, who allegedly left a .45 Glock under his mattress at the DoubleTree hotel in the financial district, according to a police spokesperson. A cleaning lady phoned the police at around 11 a.m. on Sunday after finding the firearm, and Coleman was subsequently cuffed and charged with criminal possession of a weapon, a felony police said.

We need concealed carry reciprocity and we need it now. We are obviously going to be talking about gun control legislation for the next few weeks or so. So, if the Democrats want to talk about changing gun laws, they need to be willing to compromise for once and the Republicans need to lock their knees and stand firm for once.
We didn't put them in power so they could take a knee and let the Democrats run the ball into the end zone
Can we give NY to Canada? Would they even want it?
I moved out of NY because of issues like gun laws.. They just love nailing outsiders. That said, what kind of idiot brings a weapon into the city and leaves it under the mattress?
Darwin award winner right there..
"We didn't put them in power so they could take a knee and let the Democrats run the ball into the end zone"
And next time put the Do Not Disturb tag on the door!
There should be a response from the Georgia governor similar to that of the Tennessee governor some years back.
Congressional action on CCW reciprocity is extremely complicated, especially for those of us who live in free states.
Any CCW bill that can pass this Congress will add restrictions and extra requirements onto a “national standard” permit, just as they did with driver’s licenses that are accepted by TSA. Plus, it’s not at all clear that Congress has the authority to legislate over the police powers of the several States.
What Congress COULD do, today, is to accept EVERY state’s CCW permits within the District of Columbia.
Good thing states still recognize drivers licenses and vehicle registration from other states.
Yes, recognize CCW in the federal District of Columbia today, now, this year.
I'm a Glock owner, and I love Glocks, but they are not forgiving. Anyone careless enough to leave a Glock behind is too careless to be choosing one as his carry weapon. NYC is violating his God-given rights and his Second Amendment rights by prosecuting him, but he needs to shift to a more forgiving design, or he needs to take his firearms more seriously (if he retains his gun rights at all after this political prosecution).
Georgia Governor to NYC: ‘I hear you have one of our boys locked up for carrying a firearm. You should consider dropping the charges immediately; or I will consider ordering my troopers to keep a ‘special eye’ on all those vehicles with New York travelling thru our beautiful state’. Your move.’
Dammit...’with New York PLATES’...
Most denizens of NYC don’t own cars, and wouldn’t drive through GA anyway. It’s “Fly over county” that they hold in utter contempt.
A similar ‘threat’ was levied by the Governor of Tennessee some years ago when a Tennessee woman was arrested in NYC on gun charges. They let her go.
As someone who drives the Ohio- Florida route at least twice a year, I’d disagree. New York and Masshole plates are the ones passing me on the right at 100MPH typically every few minutes.
I wasn’t specifying NYC dwellers...just anyone with NY plates. You start ticketing New Yorkers for doing 66 in a 65 in Georgia, and attitudes would change pretty quick.
Maybe they can make requirements like you have to have a Doctorial Degree inBLM Management;)
“We didn’t put them in power so they could take a knee and let the Democrats run the ball into the end zone”
Probably wanted to travel with it but not break the local (illegal) laws - just picked a bad place to "store" it. I guess the place didn't have room safes.
I've traveled to-/through some States that don't have reciprocity and usually store mine in the room safe when I "break the law" by not traveling non-stop through the commie States...
I was talking specifically about NYC inhabitants. I see plenty of NY plates in GA, but when I lived in the Bronx (a couple of years in the early ‘70’s), I noticed that a large percentage of the people who lived there didn’t have cars. And an in-law who lived briefly in Manhattan in the 90’s didn’t own a car at the time and most of his friends didn’t either.
