APPEAL SHOT DOWN FOR FIREARMS SALESMAN
A traveling firearms dealer who thinks the NYPD was cavalier about his constitutional right to bear arms by denying him a carrying permit for a concealed handgun has lost his effort to get the courts to do it.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Michael Stallman, in a decision posted Friday, said the NYPD was neither arbitrary nor capricious when it ruled that Cavalier Knight of Washington Heights should not get a carrying permit.
Knight, an independent sale associate of California-based Armored Mobility Inc., contended he needed to carry a concealed handgun to protect himself and his wares from “criminals and terrorists.” “That claim is based upon pure speculation which is unsupported by any evidence,” the NYPD ruled last summer and the judge agreed.

CESARE BECCARIA'S ESSAY ON CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed one."
