The Daily Caller Gets Locked and Loaded


The Daily Caller CEO and publisher, Neil Patel, believes

“Millions of Americans who own and are interested in guns are currently without the sort of daily news coverage that is allotted to most other American interests.”

Based on this unsatisfied demand, The Daily Caller has launched a new Guns and Gear section on their news site.  Eighty million gun-owning Americans will now have a one-stop “knowledge bank” for “everything from the latest news about armed citizens defending themselves and their property, to coverage of Second Amendment policies and politics, to reviews of the latest guns and gear”.

And it looks like The Daily Caller may be just in time.

If you visit this site today one of the featured stories you will find is about the Tea Party Patriots co-founder Mark Meckler’s recent arrest at a New York City airport.

Tea Party Patriots co-founder Mark Meckler was arrested at an airport in New York City on Thursday after he attempted to check-in a locked gun box holding his Glock 27 pistol and ammunition to a Delta Air Lines ticket agent.

Meckler holds a concealed-carry permit for the Glock 27 pistol at home in California, but not in New York where he was attempting to board the plane. As a result, he was arrested and charged with a felony.

Thanks to anti-gun radicals, like Mayor Michael Bloomberg, law-abiding Americans with a state-issued permit to legally carry a gun can step over the wrong state line and into a felony nightmare.

The Republican-controlled Conservative House of Representatives already has an answer to this problem.  Via the Tenth and the Fourteenth Amendments, a bill to ensure nation-wide reciprocity of concealed-carry recently sailed through the House with a 2:1 vote.

The most radical anti-gun legislator of all times…our Marxist president…and firearms salesman of the year.

    Way to go DC. This is exactly what we need!

  • Obama: Best Firearms Sales President of All Time

    Hey, at least he has something to brag about.

  • Matt

    Are you pretending he didn’t know what he was doing?

    He deserves to be charged with a felony.

    It is called federalism. States get to determine their laws. A license in California does not carry to New York.

  • gus

    Yes Matt. He should be charged with a felony for doing WHAT????

    Fvcking idiot.

  • Matt

    BTW, anybody who supports a national law on reciprocity can turn in their conservative card and just call yourselves big government Republicans.

  • gus

    Matt, you’re an idiot. What CRIME was committed?? Moron.

  • bear

    matt, the 2nd amendment was ratified by the requisite # of States as a Constitutional civil right. Take your obfuscation and shove it!

  • Matt

    Gus, breaking New York law, which he knew he was doing.

  • gun ownership is up because the left not only coddles the criminals it encourages them. we don’t have the enormous crime rates in leftist controlled areas because the left doesn’t want it. high crimes rates are another strategy of the left to destroy the country.

  • Nick

    If you took this story and changed the person from the Tea Party leader to a law abiding Muslim then everyone on here would be ready to hang the muslim guy. It is simple. I’m not debating the laws or whether they are right or wrong. The fact is that he broke current law. His permit was good in California and not in New York. Right or wrong that is the law. We are a nation of laws.

    This is a good step in the right direction but the NRA has been there all along, all of you who own weapons, believe in the 2nd amendment and the right of a free man to own arms who are not members of the NRA should be. Join now or be a lapdog of the government.

    I am a life member and as Charleston Heston said: : “they can have my gun when they pry it from my cold dead hands’

    Matt, NY is a commie state. I carry where I please.

    Freedom is a difficult concept for liberals to grasp.

    Matt, is a LIBTARD MORON

    Imagine MATT having women charged with FELONIES, because they CHOSE to kill their babies……vis a vis STATES RIGHTS.

    Matt is an imbecile and a clown.

  • So, let me get this straight, the guy is traveling with a firearm in a locked container and is arrested WHILE TRYING TO LEAVE THE STATE because he doesn’t have a New York handgun permit, is this correct?

    WTH happened to traveler’s immunity? How is a person supposed to legally travel with a firearm if the very act of changing planes is a felony because you have to touch the ground and take possession of your bags to switch? What is someone to do if they get rerouted to NY or NJ and have to deplane unexpectedly (like for weather or mechanical difficulties)?

    Are they just supposed to stay on the plane forever or what? If it’s illegal for them to deplane and take possession of their locked firearm case, what are their options?

    I don’t see how they can charge the man if the firearm is unloaded and in a locked case headed for checked baggage.

    Here is what the law says:

    Transporting Firearms Through New York
    The best way to travel through NY or any state that has restriction is to carry a copy of Title 18-Part 1-Chapter 44 926A of the federal code with you. Some law enforcement may not know the law. DO keep the firearm in a locked box. Keep ammo in another locked box. No ammo in Magazines or speed loaders in the trunk or if no trunk as far back in the vehicle as possible in a locked box. By NY Law if you are traveling across the state and can legally possess the firearm where you started and where you are going you can transport it as above. But if you stop in NY and spend the night in a motel/hotel/camp ground etc you are in violation of NY law and can be arrested if found with a firearm. Stopping for gas and food would most likely be OK but this is not a given in NY.

    United States Code Title 18 – Part I – Chapter 44
    § 926A. Interstate Transportation of Firearms

    Notwithstanding any other provision of any law or any rule or regulation of a State or any political subdivision thereof, any person who is not otherwise prohibited by this chapter from transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, and neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment of such transporting vehicle: Provided, That in the case of a vehicle without a compartment separate from the driver’s compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console.

    Seems to me that so long as the start and end points of your journey say it’s legal, the bits in the middle have very little to say on the matter if the gun is unloaded and in a locked case.

  • Molon Labe

    Matt demonstrates what a Leftard he is. Exactly what was his crime. I myself in the past had notified agents that I was carrying firearms in my luggage as part of my work in NYC. No problem. But this was before Bloomberg.

    This man’s crime is that he has done something Bloomberg doesn’t like. Typical Marxist but if you blow up the World Trade Center Bloomberg supports you building a victory mosque at the same site.

    Way to go Matt. You’re as conservative as the Maxium Leader Obama.

  • wanumba

    So, the man was pre-arrested for a felony he didn’t commit.

    He would have had to been IN New York actively concealed carrying to be guilty of that stated charge.

    Political harrassment of Tea Party. He’ll be publically smeared even though innocent.

  • Militant Conservative

    Yet anther reason I will not live in NY or California.

    Most of my arsenal is illegal in these states. Think

    about that, illegal, whereas in Texas/Georgia most

    folks love to see, handle, and shoot my battle

    Rifles. Most are military grade semi auto versions

    Of battle rifles from WWII till present. Obama and

    Other politicians can’t stand the fact that “we the

    People” have the freedom to defend ourselves

    From oppressive politicians/criminals. I am redundant.

    Okay, so The DC sets up a “Guns & Gear” section of their site while, at the same time, Tucker Carlson (its founder) wins the chance to have lunch with Bill Ayers and Bernadette Dorn.

    Does anyone else see anything wrong with this picture? Is Tucker trying to pull a fast one on us, or does he have something up his sleeve?

    And this comes from a conservative and a fan of the DC website.

    God bless you Mil Cons. You say everything the average gun owning American feels & wants to say.

    Your #13 comment says it all.

    I’m glad to hear this. I’ve never in the past considered owning a gun, because I’m afraid to handle them.

    Ever since Zero was put into our White House and all of the agencies went along with the lie about his real identity, being born in Kenya and the true son of Malcolm X, I’ve thought of owning one. I remember what Thomas Jefferson said. It looks truer by the day.

    “The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.” — (Thomas Jefferson)

    Before Zero, I never thought I lived in a country where they would turn on the citizens. I never thought, someone in the White House would be allowed to commit crime the way he is, and just be able to get away with it. It tells me that, the entire Federal Government can’t be trusted anymore. I guess we’re on our own. I think some in the military would look out for us, but not all. Some of them are like robots. They’re so used to taking orders, they no longer can think for themselves. That’s not safe.
    I’m also afraid everyday he’s going to have a foreign enemy invade the country across the border. Sometimes I think I’m going to start hearing cleats walking up the street in the middle of the night.
    I might get this too.

    If I happened to find myself afoot in a place like New York with a pistol, I’d chuck it in the trash rather than try to get on a plane with it.
