    Good grief. I hope they didn't take her picture and distribute "desensitizing" targets to members of our alphabet soup agencies.

    Looks like the perfect plaintiff for a 2nd Amendment SCOTUS case. And the most important part, she said she's going to fight it.

    You can't take a gun for a weekend in NY?

    This is where the gun grabbers win, if they are allowed to continue to fracture RKBA state by state and on the municipal level they don't need a ban. citizens will be intimidated or confused and law abiding citizens become criminals through a deliberate end-around on the 2nd amendment.

    Oh, she was at an airport. From the thread title I just assumed she was driving. Getting caught at a NY airport shouldn't be a surprise to anyone.

    160.05 Robbery in the Third Degree
    200.45 Bribing a Public Official
    210.15 Perjury in the First Degree
    215.16 Intimidating a Witness or Victim in the Second Degree
    263.10 Promoting an Obscene Sexual Performance by a Child
    490.10 Soliciting or Providing Support for an Act of Terrorism in the Second Degree

    CLASS E FELONIES

    130.53 Persistent Sexual Abuse
    130.85 Female Genital Mutilation

    As always, good to know they have their priorities in order.

    EVERDAY = the same question

    I wish I had a dollar for every time and every day I was asked about transporting a firearm by car & plane from another state to or from NYS.

    I am retired LEO from Niagara Falls NY and that question is SO often asked that I wonder where any got their information from in the first place.

    Even LEO's ask me as I keep up on the law and my fellow officers [ and retirees ] ask me a few times a year.

    They are also the least knowledgable as to LEOSA/HR218.

    Sadly there are many arrests at the 2 bridges in this city due to those coming back into the state ,or attempting to go from --- oh say Fl to Canada and they too get arrested.

    I see NO INTENT to commit a crime,the authoritys see a arrest and its all B.S. as the criminals get a free ride with a plea bargain.

    I hope this lady gets JUSTICE and not the 'law' as it is written = BADLY.

    If she traveled directly from PA to the La Guardia airport, she should be covered by FOPA, and have an excellent law suit against the City of New York.

    Sadly, being on a military enlisted paycheck with a second child on the way, they won't have the finances to fight this on their own dime. Anyone know if there's a legal defense fund we can donate to yet?

    Side note: This is why I don't fly through NY or similar places anymore. Fortunately, SouthWest has direct flights to Manchester, N.H., only 45 minutes drive from "home".

    Really? There are gun owners who don't know you can't take a pistol into NY? You've never heard that NY has really draconian gun laws? The repeated warnings on the airlines/TSA website to check with local laws did not give you a clue?

    I think she asked for money on her FB acct that is linked in the OP.



    She should get a hold of the SAF and NRA.

    The article states NY was her destination. With a gun. That's not covered under FOPA.

    She should have used a sarcasm smiley after that sentence.
    Some laws are designed to do just what she experienced; to catch and punish innocent and honest people... as a means to suppress gun ownership.

    I am confused... :confused: again... :uhoh:

    As I understand it NYC Mayor Bloombrain is trying to get all of the handguns not in the hands of his police out of his utopian ivory tower.

    So this lady is trying to help by reducing the number to one less.

    And this gets her arrested! No mention of what happened to the 6-year-old son if he was with her. Hopefully he was not caught with a water pistol.

    Our national government is badly in need of money - maybe they can sell this worthless piece of real estate back to the Indians.

    It is TIME to start SUING the <deleted> OUT of EVERY last one of this IDIOTIC agencies, cities and politicians that insist on trying to trample on the 2A!

    As a due-paying member of the NRA-ILA, I am officially asking that the organization fully support this case all the way to the SCOTUS.

    All of this stuff in NY as gotten completely out of hand.

    This makes my blood absolutely boil. I hope she takes this to the highest court of the land and wins.

    ^^^^^^^This^^^^^^^

    For many years travelers have been warned not to bring guns in luggage to La Guardia, Newark and JFK. If your flight makes an unscheduled landing at one of these airports do not claim the bag that contains the gun.

    Delta and TSA claim it's the travelers responsibility to know each state's law. In New York, if you're in possession of both a gun and ammunition, the firearm is considered loaded. For Beth, her confusion turned into a crime.
    ...

    The absurdity of NY law, GUN + AMMO possession = "loaded gun" ?

    A simple slip up at the airport with a firearm is all that it takes to get a felony on your record.

    They could care less about intent. I'll pass. If I really need to bring a firearm I'll drive.

    The federal Firearms Owners Protection Act was supposed to cover firearms in interstate transit, and protect travelers with firearms from unreasonable state laws. I wonder why it does not cover her; she might have stepped outside the limits of that law with some activity while traveling.

    FOPA covers "just passing through," not stopping. Along with "your face is going to freeze like that," every parent should tell every child not to claim baggage with a gun in NYC.

    so what are your options if you get diverted? you cannot get your bag back at all?

    say I was flying to VT for a vacation and got diverted for whatever reason. Could get a car and drive from there faster than another fight would be arranged so what happens to my bag?

    Do not claim your bag if it contains a gun. Folks get arrested for doing so.

    Tell the airline to forward your bag to the VT airport that was your destination.
