    Lot's of crap in that article about "registered" firearms! I guess I would not be able to get a plea deal since none of my guns are registered.

    I wonder how it is going to go for the Marine who refused the plea deal?

    I was thinking the same thing about the Marine.

    If the Marine does decide to take his case to a NYC jury, I hope they do the right thing.

    She was darn lucky because NY has a mandatory 2 year (maybe more) jail sentence for "gun crimes." Just ask Plaxico Burris.
    With any luck this will shine some light on the roaches in NY and make them reconsider their idiotic laws.

    I think they made a reasonable offer under NYC law. I feel that it should have never come to this, but that is NYC.

    This is truly insane to me that possession of a gun ANYWHERE by a law abiding citizen could land jail time.

    There is only ONE item that the Constitution of the United States guarantees you the right to possess.

    NYC is breaking the law, not the woman from Tennessee .

    I want to be from Tennessee!

    Glad to hear this woman is getting as fair a shake as you can expect from NYC.

    When the article stated that she had a Tennessee-registered gun, I took this to mean that she had a CCW permit. If that were the case, she would have had to have taken an approved handgun safety course which should have taught her that gun laws vary at the state, county and city levels and that knowing the law was her responsibility. You would think maybe she should have known better. Glad she didn't get jail time for this, though.

    I visited NYC once a few years back... that was enough for me.

    Does TN even have gun registration? Honestly, I'll be a little surprised if it does.

    A SUMMARY court martial is nothing in the grander scheme of things. You can't even be taken to a Summary without giving your consent. Anyone know exactly what this Marine's charges were at his court martial. Whatever the case, Court Martial sounds big and scary so I'm sure it will continue to get thrown around.

    There are two sides to every story. I'm more inclined to believe the Marine's Pastor father over some green weenie.

    People keep making these claims, but such laws remain and are enforced. Until folks start enforcing the Constitution, these other laws are the reality law of the land, not the Constitution.

    When I've bought my guns in TN the FFL completes the federal form, calls the state for a quick background check, and then away we go. To my knowledge the extent of the registration is the FFL's paperwork but I may be incorrect as I'm a newbie.

    Does anyone besides me realize the gravity of that statement?

    Glad she didn't get to badly screwed by NY. Interesting about the registered aspect. I would have a problem in that situation since Arizona not only doesn't have gun registration, but state law specifically prohibits it. I wonder if she got her gun back (And how.)

    P.S. Not that there is any possibility of me ever going there.

    I doubt the writers have a clue. Shoot when I filled out the FFL paperwork for my gun I thought it was registered in my name. I didn't care, I just had to have that shiny thing.

    NYC just wants these people to go away.
    I have a feeling the Marine may go the Constitutional defense route of the 14 amendment.
    Let's see if SAF picks this up or possibly the ACLU.

    That's NYC's nightmare.

    While I think most of the other stuff the ACLU does is great, they sadly are very anti-gun. They won't be taking this particular case on.

    Since Miller and Heller the ACLU has changed it's tune on the 2nd.
    They now support the individual rights to gun ownership.

    Yep. Had a discussion with one of their directors and while there's still some resistance, the organization is moving in a "support ALL of the Bill of Rights" direction.
