New York Airport Gun Cases
Arrested for carrying a gun in the airport?
New York gun laws are some of the strictest in the United States. While
most states are required to issue concealed carry pistol licenses to their
citizens, many places in New York make it is almost impossible to get
a license to carry a gun. While most states recognize pistol licenses
from other states, New York does not.
Since New York is a hot spot for business and vacation travelers from all
over our country, it is not surprising that many visitors from other states
get arrested and charged with violating state gun laws because of shear
ignorance. With so many busy airports in New York, it is not surprising
that so many people get arrested.
Please give us a call if you were arrested at any of the following airports:
- LaGuardia Airport
- Kennedy Airport
- Westchester Airport
- Stewart International Airport
- Newark Airport (New Jersey)
Why Our Firm Should Be Your First Call
In a typical case, a traveler from a place where guns are more common legally
checks their gun in and travels to New York. They stay for several days
and then repeat the process of checking the gun in at a New York airport.
This time, they are detained and arrested—typically facing a mandatory
minimum of 3 ½ years in prison.
