    I am torn on this one. The right to own is not threatened by laws controlling who can carry a loaded weapon outside the home. The laws I do oppose are those that criminalize the mere possession of an unloaded firearm outside the home.

    I'm not sure how far the law went. I recall in California the weapon had to be unloaded, in a locked compartment and the ammo stored seperately while being transported. Obviously, you can't outlaw unloaded guns outside the home since you have to at least get them from the gun store to the home.

    I'm torn as well. I consider it the right of any state to make these decisions for themselves, so long as it is not an outright ban. But I don't see the benefit of the law. Of course, I don't live in New York so it really doesn't impact me.

    The 2nd Amendment covers Open Carry in all 50 States, everywhere.

    Concealed Carry is what needs the permit. See the little Jedi Mind Trick they've been playing on you?

    What good would an unloaded gun be?

    Why even bother to carry one?

    The Second Amendment clearly says "keep and bear arms"

    So if you tell me I can't carry a firearm you are violating the second amendment are you not?

    The Government has a compelling reason to limit places that loaded weapons can be carried. Without a permit.

    They may have a reason, but do they really have the right to infringe on our rights?
