    The New York story gives credence to the pro-murder camp like our senator from North Dakota.  I mean if a person is allowed to carry a gun in George or the Dakotas or Vermont, then why should they be arrested when all they are asking is how to store their weapon in New York?  Her amendment to allow conceal carry across the nation if one is legally allowed to another state, though crazy on the face of it, would stop such problems.  After all, one never knows when the opportunity to kill another human being is going to present itself.

      NY requires a permit just to possess a handgun in one's home. The license requires fingerprinting, a background check, and a mental health review. Your gun must be listed on your license.

      A CCW permit requires even more. The applicant must be of good moral character and sho a good cause why they need to carry, above and beyond the general public and people in the same line of work. Think, jewelry dealer, or someone who must make large cash bank deposits.

      There is no 2A right to create a menace with a gun. And we see daily, who even with safety training required for most CCW permits, plenty of gun owners just aren't paying attention. They aren't attentive to the law when they cross state lines, or try to board aircraft, and they exhibit a gross negligence when they fail to ensure the muzzle is pointed in a safe direction AT ALL TIMES.

      They forget their gun was in their bag, they forget the gun was in their pocket, they leave the gun somewhere at home where a child or a teen picks it up and shoots someone.

      Belly up to the bar,
      Sign your name,
      Pay your fee.

      Make the law as you go.
