The police now claim she had coc aine:

The police report on the arrest refers to the pistol she was carrying and two "glassine envelopes of alleged coc aine."
But when I asked the Manhattan district attorney's office afterward whether the woman actually had coc aine in her pocket, a spokesman told me that she did not.

Interesting. Real coc aine on her person or is NYC just trying to trump up anything they can to look like saviors?

They'll need more than a nurse with a little coc aine to change their image after the massive protesting for professional privilege and public mocking of residents on food stamps and general assistance.

Update. NYC reconsidering prosecuting the woman.

City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Queens), chairman of the Public Safety Committee, personally asked Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office not to push for the 3 1/2-year minimum sentence for Meredith Graves, 39.

“By prosecuting this woman and seeking 3 1/2 years of jail, we are shooting our own [gun-control] efforts in the foot and giving the rest of the country ammunition,” Vallone said.

A NY Democrat said this:

“Clearly, the laws are too strict here, but that’s something we need to work out for ourselves without honoring licenses to carry guns in states where felons can carry them,” he said.

I know, right? Yes, Virginia there is some minute particle of sense in NYC.

Puzzling. Which states permit felons to carry?

In an amusing twist NYC laws are called out-of-date. Funny, it's always NYC and the like calling the 2nd Amendment outdated.

“We have pretty severe laws. Sometimes, cases like this make us question if the laws are up to date and if it was really what the legislators had in mind,” said professor Maki Haberfeld, chair of John Jay College’s Law, Police Science and Criminal Justice Department.

My mind is blown this should come from anyone in NYC let alone politicians and then be published in the NY Post. The temp in Hell must be dropping precipitously.

Another update regarding the alleged coc aine.

Bloomberg said gun or no gun she was screwed because of the coc aine. Ooops.

It turns out the white powder in her pocket was not drugs, according to the police, who tested it. The mayor said, before the lab reports came back negative, that the arrestee deserved no leniency and ought to be sentenced according to the existing guidelines.

How can Bloomberg get so many damn feet in his mouth with such regularity?

Some of the earlier talk of taking a new look at NYC's absurd gun laws is bearing fruit:

Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver (D-Manhattan), whose district includes Ground Zero, said he will have a "committee ... see how exactly the law is being enforced and to look at the possibility that there should be changes in the law," the newspaper reported.

The changes could include being more lenient on people who mistakenly bring guns from other states where they are legally licensed.

Perhaps a new era of common sense will be the great change of Mayan prophecy?
