    I tell people this a few times a week, when they can't legally own a gun, but they want one in case someone breaks in.

    This is what happens. After a good shoot, the DA doesn't charge you for the shooting, but you get charged for having the gun. Some states require you to get permission to have a gun at all, other states only prohibit certain large classes of citizens from having guns.

    "How would they know I have the gun?" they ask. Maybe they get a handgun as a gift from a buddy, or they buy a long gun at a yard sale, and there's no paper trail sent to the government.

    This is how they know. If you illegally possess a gun in case of a threat, you trade the harm the attackers would do to you, for being criminally prosecuted for having the gun.

    If you need a permit, then get a permit. If you have a disqualification on your record, get that fixed if you can. If your city or state won't let you have permission, then find a city or state that will.

    There are weapons other than firearms that humans have made use of for thousands of years. Maybe it looks bad if you impale an intruder on your petard, but it's an option. So is getting your rights restored, in many cases.

    If the old guy was not a prohibited person who simply didn't go through the process to own that in NY I'd be in favor of a parade in his honor.
    Sorry but I'm all out of pity right now, please try later.

    Are they required to get a permit even for something inherited from a parent? That sucks.

    I'll be 73 in July and as far back as I can remember, to legally possess a handgun in NYS required one to have a valid NYS Pistol License. The orig of that law is the Sullivan Act that dates back to 1911. Pretty sure that law and its successive iterations have been challenged in court several times. Come to think of it NYS Rifle and Pistol Association tried to sue NYS on several points in their law and the actions of some judges which set different standards in different locales within the state. They lost. I believe that was in the mid-1980s.

    In short YES! You may NOT even handle one in a gun store display without a license!

    I do. If one votes to have other peoples rights stripped away, he gets what he deserves.
