83-Year-Old Busted in Brooklyn for Possessing .22

Another tale of terror from the People’s Republic of New York: in Brooklyn, an 83-year-old has been arrested for possessing a .22 caliber pistol.

Clarence Hargrove of Brownsville told police Sunday he bought the gun when he lived in North Carolina and had a permit there, a source said.

In defense of the authorities, a .22 probably wouldn’t be sufficient to defend an 83-year-old in an anarcho-tyrannical hellhole like Brooklyn anyway.

Hargove: Rendered defenseless and arrested.

On a tip from Sean C.

    I guess the U.S. CONSTITUTION dont count in the Kingdom of CROOKLAND another liberal bastion run by the demacraps

    Didn’t he get the memo ?
    The only guns allowed in NY are for the protection of Bloomberg and Journal News staffers.

    Sounds like liberal racism to me.

    We have the right to keep and bear arms. We have the right to self defense against criminals and tyrrants, without looking over our shoulder or worrying whether we’re going to be sued or arrested. We have the right to privacy and liberty and life.

    These are RIGHTS, given by GOD and cannot be revoked. Period.

    If we ever decide to stand up and clean our country of the infection of progressivism, I would most assuredly not want to be one of them. They’ve been poking a sleeping bear in the eye for a long time. They think they’re invincible and nothing can touch them now.

    They are wrong.

    Mr. Hargrove,
    On behalf of the other members of my state, let me suggest something.

    Move to Texas — the last free Republic on Earth.

    Where you not only may possess that .22 pistol, but all the ammo you can carry, and with a CHL you can keep it on you at (almost) all times.

    Those heroic NYPD didn’t cower in fear from this “dangerous” 83-year-old. The deserve promotions!

    Everyone I speak with has horror stories of their dealings with this police department, where the police steadfastly refuse to do anything other than write summonses. They will not take reports, will not investigate robberies, will not arrest suspects and absolutely will not review evidence and “recommend” just forgetting it- but they can heroically disarm an 83-year-old man in one of the worst urban jungles in the nation. Good going heroes.

    The HQ for the company I work for is in NYC. They tried for years to get me to move there and I always refused. Now they’re up and moving out of Bloombergville. They got a nice place for the 500 folks in that office in SE PA in the heart of buggy-land. I understand they’ll save several million a year in taxes and rent – PLUS – they can own firearms, have salt on the restaurant tables, and drink Big Gulps.

    This poor chap can’t have a .22 caliber handgun in PRoNY…but the Muslim Brotherhood can have some of our F-16s, tanks, etc.?

    Why do they need such powerful war machines when they could just set up gun-free zones?

    Because even seventh century cultist animals know better.

    Hey Clarence post your address and I’ll bet someone could mail you an old 22 so you could exercise your constitutional right to self defence.

    Read the article. Police showed up after hs 59 year old wife threatened their daughter with the gun. Just another case of Chimp Out antics.

  12. Dadof3 says:

    No! Don’t move to Texas!

    No way in Hell did this guy vote for anything but the people who wrote the law he’s presently suffering under.

    He’ll vote the same damn way if he comes here. No thanks. Stay there.

    Become politically active to throw out the libs where you are. Make your case to your family and friends and start kicking them out of office!

    Get mad if you have to but stop voting for libs, dummy!

  13. dries says:

    Bloomberg & other NYC politicians would get the message if other states refused to honor same-sex marriage licenses issued in liberal NY, same way NY ignores out-of-state gun permits. Tit for tat.

  14. whotothewhat says:

    The govt will only go after law abiding sheeple that break their anti-gun rules. If they went after true criminals who flaunt the govt anti-gun rules they might get hurt.
