who ever is prosecuting her,
or thinks she should be jailed are jobbers...
These gun laws that new york has on the books
are BS, good honest people are getting caught
up in this *war* on guns
there are many casualties, and this
is just one more... =( sad day indeed.
It is unlawful for any person to carry, possess or transport a handgun in or through the state unless he has a valid New York license. (A provision of federal law provides a defense to state or local laws which would prohibit the passage of persons with firearms in interstate travel if the person is traveling from any place where he may lawfully possess and transport a firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and transport such firearm and the firearm is unloaded and in the trunk. In vehicles without a trunk, the unloaded firearm shall be in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console).
Granted, she should have checked, but there are many states that have reciprocal agreements with other states.

So here's the story in brief - Amanda Graves, a nurse from Tennessee, went to the 9/11 memorial in NYC. She had a loaded pistol with her - which she was licensed to carry in Tennessee. Going to NYC she wanted personal protection (can't blame her) and so she took the licensed and registered weapon with her.

Does New York know what the 2nd Amendment is?
Not knowing the law is never an excuse for breaking it, and a 39 years old medical student should know that.
