“The NYPD seems to be all too happy to enforce the Constitutionally dubious law. Leaked documents obtained by Project Veritas showed the NYPD would assume anyone carrying a firearm is carrying that gun unlawfully until proven otherwise. This assumption of guilt also seems to run afoul of probable cause since the police will use the fact that someone is carrying a gun as probable cause to arrest and search them regardless of if they legally possess the firearm. The new letter shows another example of the NYPD aggressively enforcing the CCIA.”
NEW YORK CITY -(Ammoland.com)- In a letter provided to AmmoLand News from Gun Owners of America (GOA), dated August 31, 2022, Inspector Hugh Bogle of the New York Police Department (NYPD) informed business owners with an active business, limited carry, special carry, or carry business license that their business might now be in a “sensitive area” and were informed to bring their guns to the police station so that the guns can be “safeguarded,” or remove them from the location.
The letter reads: “If this applies to your place of business, please bring your applicable firearm(s) to your local precinct in order for it to be safeguarded for you. Alternatively, you may bring your firearm(s) to another location where you are lawfully allowed to possess and store it. Lastly, you may contract with a Federally Licensed Firearms dealer (FFL) to store the firearm(s) for you – they may, however, charge for this service.”
