    Welcomed to the "PEOPLES REPUBLIC OF NEW YORK". Simply can not wait for global warming to melt the polar ice caps and raise the sea level. Bye bye New York City and L.A. I' m letting my f150 idle for a couple hours tonght. Problem is man made global warming is just more liberal BS. Like gun control makes for safer cities.

    Wow, I'm glad they took her off the streets, I'm sure she was planning an interstate crime spree.

    D@mned for trying to do the right thing. Granted, irresponsible gun ownership on her part for not knowing the laws of the state she was visiting, but excessive is remotely strong enough a word. Bet she'll never trust a police officer again (or return to new York). Yet another good reason not to venture into large cities... Group think lowers IQ's exponentially.

    EXPENDABLE

    She should have researched more before her trip, but where is the common sense here? It is like the child who realizes he accidentally brought a pocketknife to school, turns it in to the teacher right away, and is subsequently suspended/expelled. All it does is punish people for trying to do the right thing.

    I could have swore I got an email from the NRA stating a bill had been passed that enforced concealed carry state reciprocity. Every state but Hawaii now honors other states permits. Did I misread this or what???

    So what, she made a mistake... The mistake of trusting the police. that's a 3 1/2 year lesson she's gonna have to learn. Hopefully she'll learn her lesson next time and not interact with the police at all.

    JDAMS- afraid you are mistaken. VERY mistaken. That measure WAS passed by the House. There is NO similar measure in the Senate. Unless they pass it, it will not go to the President for his signature. Until THAT happens, it is not law. And the holdout state will not be Hawaii, but Illinois, which HAS no concealed carry permit system.

    Very true, and if it ever made it that far, I'm sure we can count on our always competent commander in chief to pass it... You know, cuz he's so pro gun and all.

    I'm just shocked at the fact that the federal government can put their hands into so many things because "The US Constitution constitutes federal jurisdiction over states" except for the 2nd amendment. Of course maybe I'm luck that they stay out of it. I dunno.
