You don't need a permit for a long gun in Ohio.

Well, there's your problem.

According to police, the Ohio man had the gun atop a charging port at at the A, C, and E line. He told police he thought he was able to carry the weapon because he had a permit in Ohio.

Well, putting your gun down on top of a charging port isn't really 'carrying' it, is it?
If you don't want 'gun control'...learn to control your own guns.

I'm more surprised that a man carrying a big gun in public wasn't just immediately shot dead by the police, I'm guessing that this is all white situation.

Any rifle is an assault rifle if you're using it for assault. I wonder if ungulates refers to the bolt-action .308 as a deadly assault rifle because it's responsible for so many deaths in their community.

Just like how cop cars are just "It's a Ford Explorer SUV because I don't want a minivan!" to 90% of the general population, but then a cop uses it and suddenly it's aggressive. Or something.

/last gen explorer is still a minivan

He has not yet been charged


Damn, man, you take up three charging ports and your gun STILL isn't done? This is New York City, where people are polite and look out for each other!

Yeah, that's my question:  how does a heavily-armed whackjob make it to the subway in NYC without police already aware of his presence?

He must have taken measures to conceal the weapon, beforehand.

Honestly, I'm gonna go with Followup for want of an Ohio tag.

Wait, is that how you re-load a gun, by putting it on top of a charging port? Is this a Tesla AR15?


Wireless charging, even.

We need to wall in the cities.  Checkpoints to get in, with ALL people and vehicles thouroghly searched.  The outlands are filled with amoral chuds willing to kill us just for the goo in our heads.   Start with NYC.  Then SF.  Then Chicago, Detroit, Austin, and the LA mega complex.

Make them safe for us normals who don't have to kill everything that moves.
 
2021-04-16 4:15:18 PM  
Open carry may have kept people feeling safe in the wild West but this isn't the wild West and there is literally no reason to open carry a long gun beyond trying to make people uncomfortable and nervous while you pretend it's to protect rights that aren't under threat.

I'm starting to think that if anyone from Ohio wants to travel to another state, they should have to apply for a visa and have a passport.  We are becoming the forgetful-great-uncle-that-nobody-want​s-to-sit-by-during-Thanksgiving-dinner of the US.

Wow, and I genuinely thought that the article was the dumbest thing I was going to read today.

I'm assuming sarcasm but honestly society has gotten too dumb to give it the benefit of the doubt anymore.

Just like the bunch of times that guys showed up at a grocery store with a fully loaded AR15 and body armor... for the lulz... cops didnt shoot the guys, they were white.

Full sentence FTFA: "The gun was an assault rile of some kind, police confirmed; the man had ammunition in a bag."

So the reporter is repeating what NYPD told them.

Oh, that fun that slaughtered children was labelled wrong? I guess it's ok that they were killed then!

When you're more concerned with the nomenclature than the deaths, you might be a f*cking sociopath who needs to be out down immediately.

Eight or nine bribes in the right hands, and he wouldn't be having these problems.

I feel like whoever sold this guy his permit for a long gun in Ohio also sold him a cat license, possibly from the Department of Housinge.

Aren't there extremely stringent gun laws in NY? Like get put in prison for an unlicensed firearm kind of laws?

Well, if we treated carry licenses like we treated drivers licenses, wedding licenses, etc., then he'd be right.

But we don't.

Think about that next time your driving your car through another state.  If we treated drivers licenses like carry permits, you'd be liable to be arrested for driving without a license, having your car impounded and sold, and facing a felony charge.

They put a popular NFL Giants player in prison for accidentally shooting his gun in club

The ONE place you do not want to be carrying a gun is NYC if you dont have the permits and you dont because VERY few people do.

They throw the book at people who "forget" they are carrying at tourist attractions etc

How would that even work? If you reside in Arizona you can carry without a permit anywhere in the country, as you can in your home state?
Not Constitutional, I don't think.

Please tell me how effective those laws were.

if you'd lived in Dodge City 100 years earlier, in 1880, your odds of being murdered would have been 1 in 996. Today, frontier Dodge would have the highest homicide rate on earth, 300 times higher than 1980s Miami.
