Bad Attitude Toward Officialdom? No Second Amendment in New York
Friday, October 29, 2010
In New York, you may be denied your Second Amendment right to own a rifle if administrative officials decide you are not of good moral character.
Under Sections 434(b) and 1043 of the New York City Charter, the New York Police Department intends intends to adopt amendments to its rules pertaining to Handgun Licenses, Rifle/Shotgun Permits and Organizations Possessing Rifles and Shotguns.
Handguns are illegal in the city. Now they’re going for the long rifles.
If a person submitting to the police for the right to exercise the Second Amendment to the Constitution is found to have a “history of one or more incidents of domestic violence” — no conviction required, only presumably the evaluation of an administrative official — gun ownership shall be denied.
If the applicant has a poor driving record, has multiple driver license suspensions or has been declared a “scofflaw” by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles, he or she will be denied the Second Amendment to the Bill of Rights.
A scofflaw is a person who habitually violates the law or fails to answer court summonses, according to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language.
