Posted on 09/23/2013 9:42:08 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
It's deja vu again: A Wisconsin woman visiting the 9/11 Memorial yesterday was arrested after a security guard screening her bag spotted a gun in the purse.
Ursula Jerry, 41, had a .380-caliber semi-automatic Kel-Tec gun in her purse. The Wall Street Journal reports, "The weapon had two rounds in the magazine-none were in the chamber, the official said." Jerry also told cops, "I travel with this from home on Amtrak to New York City. I dont mean harm to anyone."
Jerry has a permit for the gun in Wisconsin, but not NYC. Responsible gun owners would know that New York City is really horrible and requires a NYC gun permit, which means out-of-towners are out of luck.
The Post is critical, "Jerry isnt the first hick from the sticks to treat the WTC and the city in general site like an Old West saloon." A woman from Tennessee was arrested in 2011 for trying to check her gun at the 9/11 Memorial while folks from Georgia and Indiana have tried to bring guns to the Empire State Building. And a man from North Carolina was arrested for leaving his gun in a hotel lobby chair, because he didn't want to bring it to the 9/11 Memorial.
It’s so much safer to prosecute good people than bad people.
Isn’t that punishable by a mandatory 3 1/2 years in prison? What party is Bloomberg from again?
“Hick from Wisconsin?”
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Can someone please explain to me why in the hell anyone in the right mind would want to go to the police state that is NYC?
Those “hicks from the sticks” feed the world. Wonder how long thugs from the city could make it without those “hicks” producing their food.
OMG!! A citizen exercised their constitutional rights at the 911 Memorial!
It behooves gun owners to check the laws outside their own states to avoid these kind of instances. When we moved from FL to NV I checked the laws on our route and purposely avoided states where my “freedom” might have been placed in harms way. Despite the federal transport laws. It only takes one uninformed deputy/highway patrol person to make your life living hell even if you are compliant with the transport laws. Not to mention the arsenal I may have had in the trunk and the hassle to try to have them given back. Of course I could have just said I was taking them to a “gun buy back” event somewhere. LOL!
“Those hicks from the sticks feed the world. Wonder how long thugs from the city could make it without those hicks producing their food.”
Yeah, no Lox, Bagels, and Cream Cheese would bring NYC to a grinding halt!
If NYC and the airlines had gun regulations like the ones in the sticks, the terrorists would have been dead before they got to ". . . Akbar!" and the WTC would still be standing.
I would never go to New York City with only two rounds in my magazine.
Tyranny of the Law Abiding.
“Jerry isnt the first hick from the sticks to treat the WTC and the city in general site like an Old West saloon.”
That’s the kind of tolerance, open mindedness and compassion I have come to expect from NYC elite types. And they wonder why so many people hate NYC. Good job taking an innocent otherwise law abiding citizen and turning her into a criminal. All because she was smart enough to try to protect herself in the cesspool you think is the greatest city in the world.
Note to Ms Jerry, WTH do you have an empty chamber and only 2 in the mag?
Mall in Kenya.
They arrest innocent people. This makes the arrest numbers go up, so the public thinks they are solving the problem.
Meanwhile, hordes of fanatical life forms with 98% of human DNA plot how to murder Americans.
Bloomberg was a Democrat for the first 60 or so years of his life, a Republican between 2001-2005, and has been an independent for the last eight years.
Some folks won’t learn even that lesson until it is their turn to stare down the barrel of a bad-guys gun.
So how is it that NY’s laws trump the Constitution?
