    Although a Manhattan judge has rebuffed two constitutional challenges to New York City's gun licensing law, she found that the police interpretation of parts of the law could deprive New Yorkers of their Second Amendment rights.

    New York City's gun laws are unconstitutional and should be challenged all the way up to the SCOTUS.

    holy shit

    NY has a law that guns have to be locked up?

    What a tyrannical shit hole, I'm stunned anyone that cares about the Constitution lives there.

    THAT is the wrong question.

    The proper question is; Why is there a law forcing people to lock their guns?

    It's the right to bear arms, not the right to bear arms except

    well, we're going to have disagreements about the extent of the right. but i know that in NYC, when you have a target/premise and you have the guns at home, they have to be locked in a gun safe with the ammo separate.

    i don't know what the rules are regarding carry permits.

    part of me agrees. part of me thinks someone should have been on the LIRR with a legitimate right to own a gun when Colin Ferguson started shooting people and should have blown him off his feet when he went to re-load.

    plus, my husband and son love recreational shooting (i mean targets, trap shooting, that type of thing) so i don't really have any particular aversion to it. i just don't get the obsession of some. i mean there are people on this board who define themselves by their guns. i think that's just plain nuts.

    Then you will end up with gun violence escalating and no way for you to keep your family safe.
