Proposed NY Law Denies Gun Permit Due to Debt

By John Lott   |   Thursday, 28 Oct 2010 02:56 PM

New York City will ban those in debt or with a bad driver's record from owning a gun

What would New York City residents say about limiting voting to those who have paid all their bills and who have good driving records?

After all, do you want irresponsible people voting?

A proposed law would discriminate even more against poor people being able to defend themselves. At the very least, this law should show those voters that those who oppose gun ownership haven't gone away.

New York City residents who want to own a gun may soon be denied permits if they are litterbugs, if they are bad drivers, or if they have fallen behind on a few bills.

Section 3-03 Grounds for Denial of Permit reads, "(h) The applicant has a poor driving history, has multiple driver license suspensions or has been declared a scofflaw by the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles."
