New York – -(Ammoland.com)- Why are law-abiding, licensed gun owners who follow laws and procedures being jailed in New York?

Reason TV’s John Stossel finds that every week gun owners, legally licensed by other states, are being arrested in New York airports despite correctly following the procedures of the TSA and airlines.

One such traveler, Avi Wolf, was charged for having an empty, plastic magazine in his bag. He didn’t have the gun or bullets — just the magazine, which he had forewarned the TSA about.

“I'm telling them … I have a magazine here. It's empty, no bullets,” Wolf said. “Next thing I know they're pulling me over to the side, they're like, ‘Do you know what you have in your bag?!' I know what I have in my bag, I told you what I have in my bag.”

Wolf spent a day in jail and $15,000 in legal fees, which resulted in plea bargaining a felony charge down to “public disorder.”

    1. The Left-“Libertarian” deluge-immigration and dhimmigration policies to which folks like John Stossel, Grover Norquist, CATO, “Reason”, and The “Independent” Institute subscribe are achieving what “Democrats” and foreign totalitarian enemies such as fascists and communists could never have practically dreamed of actually doing:

      1. Overwhelming the voting control of the relatively conservative native-born U.S. citizen. Example: See California.

      2. Permanent supermajority of anti-gun “Democrats” in all branches of the federal government and a supermajority of the states. Example: See California.

      3. Direct and indirect massive redistribution of wealth and income. See California.

      4. Global government. The inevitable result.

      In other words, destruction of the meaning and value of citizenship, of our Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and of the USA as an free or even independent constitutional republic.

      Left “Libertarians” oppose borders, sovereignty, and exclusive citizenship rights. They claim immigration limits and controls are unconscionable and amount to “slavery”. They believe there should be no limit on the number of people who should be able to come to the USA and enjoy rights, privileges and immunities equal to those of American citizens, including of course, instant de facto co-ownership of property held in trust by government for the American citizenry (redistribution), and voting — which at supermajority levels — let’s not delude ourselves — becomes the power to redistribute and oppress, bot illegally and LEGALLY in countless ways, up to and including altering the US Constitution.

      The world’s population is approaching 8 billion, several billions of whom are not only poorer than the typical Mexican “undocumented immigrant”, but live in places that vastly more dangerous and oppressive than Mexico. In Left “Libertarian” utopia of unlimited immigration, literally billions of people would be better off coming to the USA rather than staying where they are, EVEN IF the USA did away with ALL forms of “welfare” and government “services”.

      Imagine, Welcome to the USA: Population 3 billion. Besides the obvious crushing of our quality of life in countless ways, these three billion 3rd worlders could and would vote to redistribute our wealth and income, and progressively strip us of liberties, including gun rights.

      Left “Libertarians” (who are not real Libertarians) are de facto globalists (anarcho-globalists if you will) and immigration-socialists. Their immigration policies work to destroy all the liberties they claim to support — except for the “liberty” to come here at will, out-vote us, and culturally terraform the USA.

      Because they oppose the most fundamental prerequisites for the existence of the USA as an independent nation — borders and non-suicidal immigration limits and criteria — Left “Libertarians” cannot honestly take the constitutional oath of office or even the pledge of allegiance. They are not and cannot be loyal Americans.

      Because Left-“Libertarians” (who are not true libertarians) can pass themselves off as compatible with conservatives and republicans, which nazis and communists can’t, they are vastly more damaging than any other enemy of the USA, domestic or foreign.

          1. @Andy, It is not total plagiarism. Plagiarism is representing someone else’s written work as your own for gain. There is no gain to be had here. He is just sharing. I am glad to have read this. If he was required to rewrite the whole thing, then the piece probably would not have come to my attention.

          2. WTF are you yapping about? I’ve been making these points originally and independently from any source for over 20 years. If someone else has made these points they either developed them independently, fine, or plagiarized them from ME, not fine.

            More fundamentally, even if it were plagiarism, your accusation is clearly a smokescreen to divert attention from the truth of the points made.

            @Carl0sPerdue

            1. Another alternative is if one of my correspondents or readers makes these points, or uses phrases I coined, with my knowledge, that’s fine too. I never copywrited. My goal is to save my country. Unlike the goal of Left “Libertarians” which is to destroy it.

            2. I actually misspoke. If someone reiterates points I’ve been making for decades, that doesn’t bother me. It’s a compliment, and I want these points to get traction. Plagiarism is a much more specific thing that involves copying tracts of prose.

      1. Amen brother ! I agree with you 100%.
        You have just stated the Progressive/Socialist/Democrtas sinister objective spectacularly !
        And I feel it qualified to be posted again in my reply !

      2. @ Carlos Perdue, good article and thanks for taking the time to put it on this site. It pretty well sums up the total intent of the snowflakes regardless what state they nanny. Most states are finding there is a few creeping into local governments like slimmy snails.

    2. Good job Stossel (D.A. Jack Ryan “sadistic bully”). This D.A. Ryan (probably related to the lackey Paul Ryan running the House) and the liberal lawmaker hierarchy in NYC and NYS have been meeting solely to formulate plans to challenge and destroy Reciprocity if it were to pass as law.
      S446 (the lesser bill) still sits at 37 Republican Senators; hope Senator Cornyn pushes this bill before year end so the coward two-faced double crossers who cast nay votes are exposed. HR38 is now at 208; but the crooked double crosser senate cowards who have been serving Trump up to the will surely double cross the American people on Reciprocity. We need to expose them so the can be the focus of defeat in their bids for reelection.

      1. Not only are they sadistic bullies, they are nefarious traitors to the supreme law of the land. They need to be charged with treason, and when found guilty be given a proper tar & feathering, and then a rail ride down to the hanging tree. There is no cause for them to do this except to get us disarmed for when they implement the “Kalergi Plan”. Perhaps they should be charged in a citizens trial, and when found guilty have a “Wanted:Dead or Alive” sentence put upon them. Then let them run for their lives. I’ll say it again, these people are traitorous scum. The sooner they are off the planet the better for the rest of us. What a bunch of donkey dust they are shoving down our throats.

    3. Be like me and refuse to fly any where close to New York! Let 20 or 30 million people refuse to change planes in New York or New Jersey and you will see the affect damn fast!

    4. NY, NJ, CT, & CA are all liberal socialist-minded, communist states where the elite have guns and the typical law-abiding citizens go directly to jail regardless of their State of origin and accompanying permits and licenses. This is the reason why we need a bill that defines “Constitutional Carry that incorporates “National Reciprocity,” combining all rights and priveledges to any law-abiding citizens holding a valid permit or license to have a loaded gun on his or her person in any State of the Union without limitations to local jurisdictions safe zones et al.

      The second amendment is clear and valid, and any state that denies us this privilege must be sued for the projected cost of life of the offended.

    5. Andy, tsa and city police officers are two entirely different agencies. Wishing death on any officer is idiotic. Next time you need assistance, call your local crack dealer. Have a great day.

      1. At least the crack dealer will bring some crack. All the cop will do is show up after the fact shoot your dog, write a report and look for a reason to arrest you. You would be safer with the crack dealer.

    6. No. The cops are doing their job enforcing the laws that the duly elected RULERS wrote in the state legislature and signed by the governor. The demokkkrats are responsible for the infringement of our fundamental Constitutional right to keep and BEAR arms.

      1. And the cops are “just following ze orders.’ Ha ha ha ha, it’s just like Nuremberg never happened. Oath, shmoath.

      2. Right, because when the Republicans have had total control of the US government they have worked to repeals the NFA and the GCA of 68. You are a sucker. Both parties are just different sides of the same corrupt, anti American coin.

      3. Their job is to enforce the law subject to their oath To uphold the Constitution. Just following orders is no excuse

    7. What happened to the COMMON SENSE DISCRETION of the people who first interact with these LAW ABIDING Individuals??? Where is the “Spirit of the law”? Communist new york is NOT a place to travel through.

      1. You are the scumbag for even making such a low life statement. Who do you go crying to when you or your family need assistance?

        1. Actually it is fools like you and Bob Johnson that don’t understand exactly WHO most cops are! The US government and most cities in the US are corporations that have hijacked true government. That is why they are getting away with all of the hundreds of thousands of illegal/unconstitutional laws, rules, and statutes in this country! The judicial system and the law enforcement system work for the corporation, NOT FOR THE PEOPLE!

        2. You are a bootlicker. Scumbag is better than bootlicker any day of the week. If I need someone to shoot my dog, lie to me, and look for a reason to arrest me, then I might call a cop. Other wise I can take care of my self.

    8. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME?????? THOSE POOR PEOPLE . I MEAN SERIOUSLY , WHAT A WASTE OF MONEY , TIME AND RESOURCES ON BOTH SIDES OVER AN EMPTY MAG AND YOU JAIL A WOMAN WITH A PERMIT .WTF??? A GUN IS LOADED WHEN THE CLIP IN NEAR THE FIREARM AND NOT IN THE FIREARM??????? AGAIN WTF !!! NEW YORKASTAN HAS THE MOST RIDICULOUS GUN LAWS IMPOSED ON ITS CITIZENS WHILE ITS OK FOR THE RULERS TO OWN AND POSSESS AND CARRY THEM . SOME OF THE LAWS PASSED IN THESE STATES BLOW MY MIND .
