    Sounds to me like a federal court needs to apply the full faith and credit clause.

    The War on Guns, you'll hear one of these crazy stories every few years or maybe more often.


    Very sad.

    If it was a government website that gave him inaccurate info, that should be enough to drop any charges.

    Well from what I can tell this guy was clearly trying to do the right thing.

    I'm curious to see the "inaccurate" online gun law information that he based his decision to carry a concealed weapon into the State of New York off of. He could just be an idiot...

    Regardless, I feel bad for the guy. The minimum sentence of two years seems pretty harsh.

    Not having a CC permit I'm not up on what all goes into acquiring one, but it seems logical somewhere along the process those trying to acquire one should be educated as to whether or not their carry permit extends to other states.

    Anyone know how that works?

    I think anything over a year would be pretty outrageous - but it was sort of gross neglegence to go vacationing and not look into the gun laws where you're going - and even grosser neglegence of his parents and teachers to not have known that different states have different gun laws.

    New York's gun laws are pretty well known nationwide.

    Don't come here with your shootin' irons. :D

    This is the result of needed and unnecessary laws and regulations coming from the top. 90% of people think the solution to any problem is more. More laws, more rules, more regulation, more bureaucracy, more top down power structure.

    Truth is what we need is a whole lot less. Were are ADULTS not children.
