A Georgia Man’s NYC Arrest And The Media’s Love Of The Word ‘Arsenal’
By Tom Knighton
A Georgia man was recently arrested in New York City. His crime? Having a firearm. Apparently, that was all.
Well, he had more than one firearm. Frankly, I don’t have any sympathy for the man, either. After all, we all know that NYC is a no-go zone for legal guns. If you take a firearm into the city without permission, you deserve whatever may happen.
Don’t get me wrong, I think the rules are stupid and need to die a fiery death, but those are the rules, and you either play by them or get what’s coming if you get caught.
What really tickles me is the media’s fascination with the word “arsenal.” From WSB-TV’s story:
A Georgia man was arrested Monday in New York at a parking garage above the Port Authority Bus Terminal for keeping an arsenal of weapons in his car, including two handguns, dozens of bullets and a machete.
The police found two unloaded 9mm handguns, 138 rounds of ammunition, including 60 hollow-point bullets, a machete and a hatchet in his car, the New York Daily News reported.
