Ryan Jerome was enjoying his first trip to New York City on business when the former Marine Corps gunner walked up to a security officer at the Empire State Building and asked where he should check his gun.

That was when Jerome’s nightmare began. The security officer called police and Jerome spent the next two days in jail.

The 28-year-old with no criminal history now faces a mandatory minimum sentence of three and a half years in prison. If convicted, his sentence could be as high as fifteen years.

Not much you can say about this right?
God bless America and god bless all of our fine law makers for keeping America safe from gun wielding
Marines with no crimimal record who were good enough to walk around 24/7 with a fully automatic rifle while in a foreign land but faces 15 years in prison for having a pistol and trying to check it at the door in your own country.

I love America.
Long live King Obama
and god bless our congress and sentate.

We were at war with Eurasia
We were NEVER at war with Eurasia.

This Marine is Ungood.

The ministry of Love will reform him.

This is exactly like that woman from last week at the 911 memorial.

I wonder if this is some form of high risk activism regarding carry reciprocity.

totally his fault for not knowing the laws.

Hell, I don't even own a gun and I know not to bring one into NYC without (a) a permit and (b) checking in with local law-enforcement after obtaining (a).

The fact that he's a marine is irrelevant.

He did check. Just got wrong info.

I've been told absolutely untrue information regarding all sorts ofthings from building codes to gun laws by clerks, cops, lawyers and other "experts" in my time.

Even had contradictory written regs pointed out to me by two alleged "officials" at the state Capitol.

Saying he should burn because he didn't check ignores the problem.

....has nothing to do with Obama, the Senate or Congress. It's a city law, not Fed. Gun laws are more restrictive in NYC, even more so than NY state laws.

This is so stupid. If the 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th amendments all apply equally to all the citizens in all states, why not the 2nd?

I didn't know about the 911 incident. If these are acts of civil disobedience, my hat is off to them.

This is why all laws from state to state and town to town need to be unified. Not just gun laws but all laws, even the small ones like who has to wear a seat belt.

Any sane jury will do jury nullification on this case. But since this is NY we are talking about, forget it.

In other news, why the hell is NY allowed to have unconstitutional laws?


A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed


What part of SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED do they not understand in NY?? That means no permit. No gun ban.


This is why all laws from state to state and town to town need to be unified. Not just gun laws but all laws, even the small ones like who has to wear a seat belt.

You must be kidding.

You don't believe that each state has the right to govern it's citizens?

The Only thing I say anymore since the NDAA passed is how much I love my country.
I agree with ALL of its laws in EVERY state. This Marine should have known better.
He deserves life in prison and maybe even the death penalty for carrying a loaded weapon in NY!

-----scratch that.....he deserves whatever the state says he deserves, nothing more, nothing less.-----

His family can just go get a new dad and husband.

I love America.
People who accidentally break the law are ungood.

we were NEVER at war with Eurasia.

There is some good information regarding the woman from last week where several NYC politicians are calling for leniency (Democrats included) and even going so far as to call NYC's restrictions outdated and extreme.

It was a mind boggling read from NY.

and NOT the ones it does not agree with.

LoL, it probably takes 15 years just to learn all the laws in the US. They have so many laws and restrictions i wonder how they can claim to be so free.

I understand that this case upsets many, but to respond to ALL since it comes up in every thread when the topic is about guns/laws, and of course the so called second amendment.

Until you learn the laws and the constitution with regards to what the 14th usurped you will remain in the dark. I have several threads that explain all this but people would rather follow some unlawful patriot blather then learn the truth.

The 14th has usurped all so called rights, and voided out the first 10 amendments to all citizens. Crazy right? Permit = Permission there for a NON right, but a privilege. So all citizens thanks to the 14th usury has voided out all rights. Only those with corrected status as a NON citizen/national of the United States have full protection under the original constitution as it guarantees a Republican form of governance, this is not a party, but form of governance. Status is the key and is the only lawful way permitted and recognized at all levels of government, status gives you back total and true freedom.

Learn more at my threads to get you started in your study of real law.

The truth is, a JURY is allowed to completely throw out anything it wants, if they believe the LAW to be wrong, they are permitted to dismiss all charges, no matter what. Of course, the judge will never tell them that, but it IS the law.
