NYC has dropped felony charges against Mark Meckler who was charged with felony possession of a firearm with intent to do harm because he tried to check his legal, encased, unloaded weapon at LaGuardia Airport. NYC kept his gun, of course, and his lawyers have advised him the fight to get it back will cost more than the gun is worth.
It's good the felony charge was dropped, seeing as he violated no legitimate law under our Constitution, only a deranged Jim Crow law still on the New York City books, but he did not get away scot-free. He was charged with disorderly conduct, what they plea-bargain you down to so they can still claim they won their case against an antisocial person, and collect some sort of fine to punish the person for presuming to have some personal freedom and rights in Michael Bloomberg's personal fiefdom.
Since the felony charge was dropped, it cannot be appealed, and cannot be used in the Supreme Court to finally overturn NYC's illegal laws.
I expect that Meredith Graves, the Tennessee tourist who attempted to do the right thing and check her personal protection when she visited Ground Zero, will also either have her charges dropped completely, or also get a plea bargain to a non-felony punishment, and therefore will also not be able to be the test case that finally puts Michael Bloomberg and all the anti-self-defense elites before him in their proper place, and at long last allow New Yorkers their unalienable freedoms.
Someone needs to make the sacrifice of time and money, and risk their personal freedom to get the last of these laws off the books once and for all. Millions of people in NYC, Maryland, New Jersey, California, Massachusetts, Illinois, and other "may issue" CCW states will finally be able to live knowing they can defend themselves against violence at long last, as our founders intended.
