    Yep, since 1911 New York State has had "The Sullivan Law" that makes it a felony, (not like most states where it's just a misdemeanor), to even possess an unloaded handgun at all without first having obtained a state license, which is issued by the clerk of the county that you live in, but is subject to state standards and registration with the state police force.

    What most people don't realize is that it's easy to get a permit to keep a handgun in your home. (Outside of NYC). Every county in New York has different standards for what is good enough "cause" to issue a carry permit to carry a loaded gun out on the streets, but that's not true for a home possession "premises only" permit.
    Any law abiding citizen who applies can have a handgun in their home for home defense purposes, if they get that premises permit.

    Rifles and shotguns don't require any permit or any licensing.
    If those long guns don't fit New York's definition of "assault weapons" they're perfectly legal --just like steak knives, bricks, and baseball bats.

    The homeowner in this case should've chosen a long gun for his home defense firearm, or obtained a premises permit before acquiring a handgun.

    I read that prosecutors in .CA will do that much and worse if you try to defend yourself with a gun.

    Thx for the excellent explanation.
    NY is a state, and I do believe in "states' rights."
    But charging that guy with a felony is just plain wrong.

    I hate for the old guy to go through it, but I would insist on jury trial, and stick to it.
