Man Checking Guns Is Arrested
at J.F.K., Authorities Say

New York Times, by Michael Schwirtz

A Tennessee man was arrested at Kennedy International Airport on Saturday as he was checking in and officers discovered two pistols and two rifles, painted silver and purple, the authorities said.(Snip)But under most circumstances, New York City law prohibits visitors from bringing firearms into the city even if they are legally licensed in the visitors’ home state. This means that while weapons can sometimes be lawfully checked onto a flight destined for New York, gun owners can be arrested if they are caught with the weapons while visiting the city or at city airports when they try to check their

Instead of "nuking" Iran as Adelson has suggested, how about they nuke NY City. It appears it is a much greater threat to the nation´s freedoms than is Iran.

So what is legal anywhere else in the country will get you a lengthily prison sentence in New York. Message received. Avoid traveling to New York.

I do avoid NY and flying through NY airports.
Transfer between Newark and Kennedy are nasty and I´d rather fly overseas using Chicago, Dallas, Miami or any other airport than NY

You could not pay me enough to go that armpit. The only way to get by there is to be a shyster or mugger or unlicensed pharmacist. Decent people will be eaten alive.
I think I´ll stay in the free states, where a peaceable citizen can carry a gun and nobody much cares.

Violation of his civil rights under color of law, title 18 section 242 and probably 241 as well. Too bad he may not have the money to sue them into the next century.

This young man joined the Army a few years ago at age 19, was in NY visiting family he had not seen while fulfilling his voluntary commitment to protect this country, was returning to Tenn with his hunting gear, and dutifully went to check in his weapons in order to board a flight...why the heck aren´t the sky marshals, US Marshals, MP´s, or US Attorney´s in NY pounding on NY LEO about his arrest, or is it that NYC only wants the military around when they are directly attacked by terrorists...

I seem to recall that New York has this law that says you can transport a licensed weapon, but only if it is transferred from one flight to another in a locked box or something, and the owner can´t touch it, it has to be done by the airlines?

I´m not sure how this works, but many travelers end up being arrested at New York city´s two airports, JFK and LaGuardia. New York state residents get caught in this trap, too.

So what happens if someone is traveling and their route to a ´free´ state gets rerouted for weather or whatever reason into New York?

What they are doing is unconstitutional.

Serial numbers on .22 rim-fire rifles were not required of manufacturers until after 1968. Many manufacturers prior to ´68 were not serializing some or all of their 22 rim-fire rifles.

The article did not say serial numbers were ´obliterated´, but rather that the rim-fire rifles were un-serialized.

The answer is fairly simple. Avoid going to New York unless it is imperative for you to do. Avoid conventions and vacations there. Let the tourist bureau that you had planned on visiting NYC but decided not to. Tell them why.

Gun laws such as those in New York, are not intended to prevent crime. They are to harass law abiding citizens.

Has anyone ever heard of a criminal committing a crime with a firearm, being charged with illegal possession of said firearm?

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I´ve gotta tell, another little thing about Nelson Mandela. Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

RUSH: Let me give you what is, I think, one of the most amazing things I ever heard Nelson Mandela say. We had fun with Mandela when he was in New York, when he came to New York and went to Yankees Stadium. But I´ll tell you, there are very few people that could have undergone what he went through and maintained any sense of dignity or optimism.(Snip) "Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies." Is that not great? And it´s great because it´s exactly right. Resentment doesn´t do anybody any good.

The U.S. federal health insurance website HealthCare.gov, which has had technology problems since its October 1 launch, is now experiencing errors in transmitting applications about 10 percent of the time, a government spokeswoman said on Friday. The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites. "We believe nine of 10 transactions are being successfully transmitted," the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, or CMS, spokeswoman Julie Bataille said at a news briefing.

Washington — Thad Cochran, a Mississippi Republican who was first elected to the Senate in 1978, set up a generational and ideological clash in the state’s Republican primary when he announced Friday that he would seek a seventh term in 2014. While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

Rep. James Sensenbrenner Jr., the original author of the Patriot Act, says Director of National Intelligence James Clapper should be prosecuted for lying to Congress. "Lying to Congress is a federal offense, and Clapper ought to be fired and prosecuted for it," the Wisconsin Republican said in an interview with The Hill. He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) asked Clapper whether the National Security Agency (NSA) collects data on millions of Americans. Clapper insisted that the NSA does not

Washington - President Barack Obama on Thursday defended his nuclear diplomacy with Iran before an audience of Israeli diplomats and senior members of the US Jewish community and officials. At a White House Hanukkah reception, Obama said that it was important for the United States to test Iran´s intentions, and pledged to keep working for a comprehensive deal to deprive Tehran of a nuclear weapon. "For the first time in a decade we have halted progress of Iran´s nuclear program," Obama said. "Key parts of the program will be rolled back even though the toughest of our sanctions remain in

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
