Not true, he stayed for a few days and had the gun in his possession without a license and broke NY law. The federal law will not help you if you spend the night in NY city. Another case occurred a while ago where a traveler had a layover in NY city airport and his flight got canceled. The airport rebooked his flight for the next day and he took his luggage to a hotel which included a weapon. When he went to check back in the next day, the airline called the police and he was arrested with a felony gun possession. When he sued, the NY courts ruled the federal law did not apply to him because he spent the night with his weapon. If he had remained in the airport, then he would have been protected.
This New York DA is a Cuomo/Bloomberg statist and ass for pushing unconstitutional laws.
You got a name for that airline? So I will not fly it ever.
Not going to fly Delta.
