    Do you suppose we would have gun-control measures passed quickly and in a panic if Occupy Wall Street protesters had carried firearms?

    Just wondering.

      Open carry is illegal in New York state unless you are actively hunting during hunting season.

      would be met by gunfire from the local cops.  It is only "true patriots" who are allowed to carry guns openly.  (personally, I always transport in original box and then wrapped in a couple of bags and then stowed away in the trunk just to make sure some cop and I don't have some sort of misunderstanding.
