    California woman who was arrested at JFK Airport

    A California woman who was arrested at JFK Airport after trying to board a plane with a handgun in her checked luggage is suing the Port Authority Police Department for excessive force.

    Cynthia Berliner, who is licensed to carry a gun in California, declared the unloaded Smith & Wesson at a Jet Blue Airways check-in counter in 2006.

    She and her attorney claim that a little-known federal statute allows an unloaded firearm to be transported between states that allow legal possession of such a weapon.

    Port Authority cops arrested Berliner for not having a New York City permit. Her Brooklyn federal court suit claims the officers hurt her shoulder while handcuffing her behind her back

    So let say she does have CCW for Cali. Where was she coming from to be covered by the Congressman Young letter? According to Handgunlaws California is only honored in AK*, AZ, IA, ID, IN, KY, MI, MO, MT, NE, OK, SD, TN, TX, UT, VT*, WI. She may be Ok, the NY courts have been finding out of state visitors not guilty for carrying here illegally. If she was truely injuried her personal injury case may case the criminal case.

    Is this the “little known law” they are referring to? If so I am sure NY prefers to keep it that way.

    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.

    The paper talks about an arrest made 4-5 years ago. Besides the question of where was she going to, which is probably not relevant as her bags should have been sent on to that destination without her picking them up, one has to believe that the criminal charges have long been disposed of. It would be interesting to know if she was charged, adjudicated guilty or not, and why the suit is only sort of going forward at this point in time.

    I'm going to guess that the suit wouldn't be going forward if she was convicted of something, though even real BGs could file excessive force claims.

    What ever it is they do, it seems they try to circumvent it. There really is no choice about obeying it. Finding thin excuses for why it doesn't apply in a specific situation is another matter.


    Thing is, a lot of folks get themselves arrested by not following the letter of the FOPA law to a T.

    I have to wonder if that woman flew to NY; stayed overnight, and then attempted to board another flight.

    Again, does anyone know the disposition of the charges against her?

    It doesn't have to be a state that has reciprocity with California, many states allow possession of a handgun without a permit, you just can't conceal carry it.
