NYC law states "Handgun licenses issued elsewhere in New York State are not valid in New York City". The same holds true in NYC for out of state licenses and out of NYC handguns. Current NYC law does not recognize out of NYC handgun licenses. As I have said, the constitutional questions of the NYC gun laws need to be tested through the courts and I hope Meckler does so. I don't like NYC's gun laws or California gun laws too. I don't live in NYC and I would never bring a firearm into NYC due to their current laws.

The "protected travel" interstate transport provision of the Federal FOPA requires that the firearm must be legal in both departure and arrival points of the travel. Steve Enos

Here's a link to an NRA site that provides some info on NYC gun laws. http://www.nraila.org/gunlaws/nyc.aspx One thing that looks to have an impact on the "passing throught NYC" clause is: "New York City licenses are valid throughout New York State. However, a New York State license to carry or possess will be valid in New York City in the absence of a New York City license provided that the handguns are transported by the licensee in a locked container and the trip through New York City is continuous and uninterrupted". The "continuous and uninterrupted" part is the likely issue with Meckler as he was in NYC for four days.

Constitutional questions of the NYC gun laws need to be tested through the courts and I hope Meckler does so. I don't like NYC's gun laws and I'm also no fan of California guns laws too. I don't live in NYC and I would never bring a firearm into NYC due to their current laws. If folks want to help address the California guns laws check out and join "Calguns", a good group that is doing good work to address the ever growing and over reaching California gun laws. Calguns also does a wide range of valuable and fun firearms and shooting related efforts and events in Cali.

John... Meckler and NYC have stated he arrived in NYC on the 11th and was there for four days until he went back to the airport to fly out of NYC. Meckler brought the firearm into NYC, had it in his possission after leaving the airport and still had it when he went to fly out of NYC. Meckler was in possesion of the firearm while in NYC, a violation of NYC law. NYC has firearm laws and they have been subject of court review and they still stand. We don't just get to ignore the laws we don't like, we change them. It might very well be that NYC's law is not valid for some reason but it is still an active, on the books law and it has been upheld by the courts to date. If and until it is over turned or changed it's still the law.

John, please go back and read my 16 December 2011 at 05:28 PM post. You even posted a response to that post of mine. My 16 December 2011 at 05:28 PM post covered the "four days in NYC" issue. It's this simple... Meckler was illegally in possession of a handgun while conducting four days of business in New York City. As I posted above, the "protected travel" interstate transport provision of the FOPA requires that the firearm must be legal in both departure and arrival points of the travel. He didn’t meet this requirement so he has no recourse via the Federal FOPA rules and we all know how tight the NYC firearms laws are so Meckler has issues with NYC. Meckler was caught leaving NYC after a four day stay with a firearm in NYC, that's seems to be his primary "problem" with NYC. Steve Enos

John, that would be a yes. Meckler has stated he had been in NYC for four days and was back at the NYC airport to fly to Detroit. Meckler did not just land at NYC to pass through to another place, if so he would have not had a legal issue in NYC. Meckler went to NYC for "business" and had stayed there for four days before he returned to the NYC airoport to fly to Detroit...per Meckler's own statements.

Meckler's NYC gun issue is really simple: Meckler wasn't doing a "travel through" NYC. He brought the firearm INTO NYC, was there for four days and had the firearm with him in some fashion while in NYC for those four days... that's the violation of NYC law. I'm betting it ends up in a fine and loss of the firearm and a loss of Meckler's California CCW permit. Heck it was only a Glock. I say go with Springfield, a long time USA Company! Would be interesting knowing what the capacity of the magazine(s) Meckler had with him considering in Cali we have a 10 round capacity law. I don't like the NYC gun laws, but I don't live in NYC. So far the courts have upheld the NYC gun laws, so the law is the law and it needs to be followed until it is revised. I'm opposed to most of the every increasing regulations in California applied to firearms, ammunition and the 10 round magazine capacity regulations too. BUT, change the firearms rules and until then follow them and don’t violate them, be a responsible firearms owner. This is even more critical if one is a CCW holder. The topic is firearms laws and Meckler's arrest so please stay on topic and stop with the off topic personal BS. Thank you Posted by Steve Enos

Todd read my 16 December 2011 at 11:49 AM post. Under the new login system I am using it shows my ID as "D" for some yet to be corrected reason. I have explained this a number of times here and I'm trying to get that changed/corrected, but I have been posting my full name with these posts, as above clearly shows. And as I have provided a number of times Todd, I'm a former California Deputy Sheriff and former Federal drug enforcement officer (MERT team member). Is it possible to stay on topic?

John, one can also legally have a loaded firearm in ones parked RV or camper or even tent in California if it's your residence/"temporary residence" but can't have one loaded inside the RV or camper while it's mobile because then it's a vehicle.

John's 11:26 post that... "New York City's law is that the city requires a permit to merely possess a firearm (even in your own home.)" is 100% correct. It's a NYC law that so far has been upheld by the courts, thus it is the law of the land for NYC, right or wrong, it's still the current law in NYC. In Meckler's case he went to and was in NYC for four days, he brought a firearm into NYC. This is the violation and it was "discovered" at the airport, within NYC. In addition, the interstate transport provision of the FOPA requires that the firearm must be legal in both departure and arrival points of the travel. Meckler didn’t meet this requirement as he went to and stayed in NYC for a number of days. In addition Meckler wasn't doing a "travel through" NYC. He brought the firearm INTO NYC, was there for four days and had the firearm with him in some fashion while in NYC for those four days... that's the violation of NYC law. Understand (as George and Russ well know) that I am a strong supporter of firearms rights and A2. I'm opposed to most of the every increasing regulations in California applied to firearms, ammunition and the 10 round magazine capacity regulations too. BUT, change the firearms rules and until then follow them and don’t violate them, be a responsible firearms owner. This is even more critical if one is a CCW holder.

"Cartman's blog"??? No idea who or what "Cartman's blog" is Gregory. And what's your full name? Don't you have the spine to use your full name here? George has posted in the past the posts by those that post here without using their name are useless and should be ignored... I agree with George as it fits you as you hide in the bushes.

So "Gregory" posted... "Poor "D", you really are an idiot, aren't you? Even the other idiot has figured it out". Come on George... this is just more off topic, childish, insulting, personal BS. Just one of many by "Gregory" and you just let it go on and on and on. And who is "Gregory"? Can't tell because he does not use he full name when posting his off topic insults. So "Gregory", how about you provide your full name when posting here? Why hide and attack from behind the bushes?

Poor Gregory... why can't you grasp this? Read my 11:46 and 11:49 post above. Under the current/new/alternate login my ID shows as "D" for some reason when I post here. I am looking into this to get it changed. Until I do I sign my name in my post. As George and Russ and others here know... Doug Keachie is Doug Keachie, they all know who Doug is andd he uses his name when he posts here. I (Steve Enos)am not Doug Keachie and Georeg and Russ and others here (except you) know that too and I have always posted here under my name (less the current issues with the screwed up login system). So... "Gregory"... how about YOU come out of the bushes and post you full name? You see it's YOU that is not providing your full name with your posts here. What do you have to hide? So how about it "Gregory"... post your last name and come out of the bushes. Steve Enos

"transport their own firearms from one location to another" is one thing, possessing a firearm in a place with increased firearm restrictions like NY is another thing. Transport is one thng, carry is another. If you have a California issued CCW permit it does not allow you to carry in other places that have no reciprocity with California. In the case of Meckler he wasn't just passing through the airport, he went to NY and was there for four days, with the handgun, in violation of NY gun laws.

Hey Gregory, get a grip and read my 11:46 post above. The new login to post did not post my name and as soon as I saw that I posted again to make it clear and to tell George and George even posted a detailed response.
