Again though, what an idiot that woman is for asking to "check her weapon" hahaha, she deserve's 3 years for being an absolute numbskull.
The more I think about this the more I laugh, and the more I realize she deserves it. For someone dumb enough to bring a loaded weapon to WTC Memorial (LOL, "I'm gonna kiwll me sum al kayeda if thuy mess with meay!") then she is not responsible enough to own a weapon.
Lady you have embarrassed yourself and the state of Tennessee (which doesn't need much help).

You are essentially arguing that people who actually carry their guns don't have the right to own them. There's some "thought" for you.
Get real. Bottom line, you don't need guns in a city where at any moment there are nearly 10 million people crowding the streets. Why? What if you drop it, it's possible to go off and more likely to hit a civilian than an add board. Or it goes through the floor and hits one of the many people crowded in your building.
Or your on the subway and someone gets mugged, what are you gonna do SHOOT HIM? Come on, the law isn't yours to make. Plus this example just proves due to the laws guns are nothing but trouble in NY, you can't take them anywhere.
Also there are so many reasons to get pissed off and shoot someone just by living in that hellish city that the gun laws actually make sense.

19.5(ish)million people in the state of new york(2009)
6.2(ish) million people in the state of Tennessee (2009)
so either im horrible at math(very very likely) or even with the murder rate im pretty sure 4.5 % of 19(ish) million is higher(877 500 ny murders ) then 5.6 % of 6.2 million (347 200 murders ) so it seems that dispite the higher murder rate 3 times more new yorkers (roughly) die annually from murder then the people of Tennessee so i think its much safer to be in Tennessee then ny or at the very least comparable if you take populations in to account
Well, yes I am saying that someone who needs to carry a gun in NYC has no place in NYC.
We don't need that kind of attitude or behavior there. In other town's and states it may makes more sense. If you have lived in NYC or Tennessee you'd know the huge difference. A gun in NYC is nothing but trouble any way you look at it.
If you get jumped by a guy who has a knife, and you have a gun, you don't get cut or stabbed, but you shoot him, dead or not... your gonna spend a long time behind bars.
Is it unfair? Yes, but the only way to eliminate people making stupid decisions like that is by not having them.
Cities like New York have different rules for a reason, because the life style and given living situations are vastly different even to a city like Memphis or Nashville.
This is the beauty of Federal vs State laws, if you don't like the rules in New York and cannot conform to them or understand why they may be different than another city or state then you ought not to spend time there, otherwise you will just get in over your head.
That woman carrying a loaded weapon makes her more of a terrorist than any guy driving a cab wearing a towel on their bald head. And I guarantee you that man would scare her to the point that in the back of her cab she'd be clammed up, sweating, with her finger on the trigger.
I can't smoke a joint in Tennessee if I have glaucoma and medical clearance in California, would I be dumb enough to think I could? Hell no!
Hey I'm not saying I am an NYPD fan at all. I've seen them beat kid's into the ground for fun. And I could hardly tell the different between NYPD and the gangs.

The one thing gun laws in NYC don't apply to (which is a damn shame) is the worst gang of them all, The NYPD.
