Pregnant mom charged with felony after trying to check an unloaded gun at the airport.

This is why I hate NY. Most restrictive and convoluted laws nearly anywhere. They have thrown common sense out the window and replaced it with red tape. The latest rubbish coming out of the anti-gun state, makes no sense.

Beth Arneson Ferrizzi legally checked her gun in her departure city, Fargo, North Dakota on a Delta Flight to La Guardia.  She called Delta to find out how to do this legally. They told her the firearm had to be unloaded, stored in a hard sided and locked case. They told her the ammunition had to be stored separated. Not Separate from the gun, but separated, either in their original packaging or in a container that keeps the bullets from touching each other.  She made sure it was exactly as Delta said.  

When she got to La Guardia, se went to the Delta Counter and declared that she had an unloaded firearm in a locked case she wanted to check.  The Delta agent immediately called the Port Authority Police.  The pregnant mom was arrested on a felony charge and she was handcuffed and arrested and loaded into a police car and taken to jail. Her daughter was taken in a separate unmarked police car.

The 29 year old pregnant mom has been charged with felony criminal possession of a loaded firearm and has a trial date set for the same time as her due date. She faces up to 15 years in jail.  Now, you read that correctly. A “LOADED” firearm. Despite the fact that the gun was unloaded and locked up with the bullets stored in their own container. How could this be? In New York a firearm is considered loaded if the passenger is in possession of both bullets and a gun.

What the heck kind of nonsense is this? You can be charged with a felony for carrying a loaded weapon, even if it isn’t loaded. YEP. That is the state of New York. These and other crazy restrictions could be the reason why people are fleeing New York en masse.

I have a few problems with this scenario. First she asked Delta what the rules were. I think there should be a burden on Delta to be aware or have access to information that will let their customers know their rules in any state they are flying to. She did follow the advice of Delta and was subsequently arrested. Now, Delta does have on their website a little disclaimer that says you have to be aware of the laws of the state you are flying into. I get that. However, when you have a customer on the phone, and is asking what your rules are, and lets you know where she is flying to, I think a little heads up would be in order.

Next,  what is NY thinking? Talk about an idiot law. A gun is considered loaded even if it is unloaded. They are making it nearly impossible to safely exercise our second amendment right to carry firearms. What the heck good is a weapon going to be if you have no bullets for it? Why don’t they just go ahead and do what they really want to do, which is completely disarm NY residents.  This woman clearly did not intend to violate the law. She may have misunderstood instructions from her airline. Police officers have the right to use discretionary judgment. She TOLD them at the counter she had it.  That really demonstrates that she is a dangerous felon, and deserves to be handcuffed, arrested and taken to jail for booking.

Mr. Ferrizzi contacted us personally and wanted to stress that, the police department was very professional, and very nice. She stated that they did a great job and handled the whole thing well.

I am so sick of the gun phobia that riddles this country. People need to wake up. What are you so afraid of? If a pregnant woman checking an unloaded firearm in a locked case, with her 6 year old in tow scares you and makes you think jail time, then you are a coward.  Drop the charges New York, try to redeem yourself. I doubt it will happen, common sense is obviously sadly lacking.

  1. Not very smart on her part. what people don’t seem to realize is that you may be legal in your home state, but not necessarily so for the state you’re traveling to. Leave it home.

    1. Hey, John, Shut the hell up! Are you saying she doesn’t have the right to protect herself anywhere she goes? Are you saying she doesn’t have the right to bear a firearm any time and any place in our country? Tell me in the Bill of Rights where it says she can’t? I don’t care what state you are in. ANY law that prevents people from carrying a firearm is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. What part of “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED” do YOU not understand?

      “Leave it home”? Why don’t you just ask the government to enslave you now and save yourself and everyone else the trouble, you dumbass. Go check into the FEMA camps and enjoy a bunk next to Piers Morgan. At least she had the balls to exercise her rights as we all should.

  2. ok folks, this is bad…. BUT, people need to wake the Hell up!! STAY OUT of the Anti Gun States… Drive around, Fly around….. BUT do not enter…

    Now she has a SHTF experience due to her stupidity. Learn from it…

  3. This makes me even more glad that when a New York state employee called me a few weeks ago to make a sizable purchase, I told him I was no longer selling anything to that state. I felt sorry for him — he knew without me telling him why, and he disapproved of what his state was doing, but felt helpless. BOYCOTT NEW YORK STATE. DON’T VISIT, BUY ANYTHING FROM THERE, OR SELL ANYTHING TO THEM. ISOLATE THE TRAITORS.

    1. Wrong approach IMO. As a ‘Southerner’ I felt all NY’ers were ‘disturbed’ until I visited The Great State of New York on business and continue to do so on a regular basis.

      As a Texan raised in Florida I continually ran into mischevious ‘yankees’ who openly derided and abused Southerners. The respite arrived when I realised many 1st class, intelligent and thoughtful people I knew for years had arrived from New York.

      Unfortunately, NY is severely ‘controlled’ by enemy alien fifth columnists. I will assist NY Patriots in any way I can when asked. Will you?

  4. Delta airlines is NOT her lawyer, and all they’ll tell her is airline policy, and nothing about what laws she may be violating.

    LaGuardia airport is in NYC, so she’s looking at a MANDATORY three year sentence just for bringing her gun there. I feel sorry for this woman. She thought she was staying in America, but she flew into NYC instead.

  5. DHS/TSA are the ANTI-American Administration. Thieves, Perverts, LIARS.
    A SHAMEFUL disgrace to this Nation.

  6. In Florida, you get a dui for an open container.

    Also, if you are in an accident and a bottle of liquor you are transporting breaks, you can get a dui for having an open container.

    In both cases, you don’t have to be actually “under the influence”.

    Anyhow, what a waste of tax payer money. The red tape is piling so high, anyone can go to jail at any time for anything. If someone wants you in jail, they can find something…

  7. “Mr. Ferrizzi contacted us personally and wanted to stress that, the police department was very professional, and very nice. She stated that they did a great job and handled the whole thing well.”

    I’m sure when the boys wearing blue helmets labeled “UN” come here and start shooting the masses execution style, they’ll be “professional” about it too. They did a “great job” and “handled the whole thing well”? Seriously?!? Until people start taking a firm stand against this kind of tyranny, nothing is going to get better anytime soon.

  8. This lady loves and respects the police as does her little daughter. She is not deserving of support from the American people. She will have to learn that the cops are not her or her little daughters friends. She’s going to enjoy her 15 year sentence and her daughter will love to visit her there in NY!

  9. So if you do have a gun in NY there’s no reason to ever keep it unloaded since it’s still considered loaded.

    That should do a lot for gun safety which they say the’re so concerned about.

  10. It was for her own good. Obviously, she was a danger to herself and others.

    Society is safe once again.

  11. New York Patriots will most likely request assistance when they decide to ‘neutralize’ their sayanim controllers. Are you ready? Occupation Governor General Bloomberg and his cronies should be the first.

  12. I started watching a video called ‘Ten Thousand Patriots” and had to turn it off after a couple minutes because it made me sick to my stomach. Had those thousands been armed (instead of standing around singing and waving flags at the capitol house in Albany, New York) there would have been ample number to take the capitol, capture the treasonous b@st@rds for trial and another “ten thousand patriots” would be on their way there to re-enforce them right now. That’s the only way this bullshite will end.
