If you are traveling to visit it, do not come armed.

Not even off duty active NYPD can carry there. It's absurd.:upeyes:

The memorial itself is well done and very nicely thought out.

Left me in a bummer of a mood, it resurrected way too many memories.

Can anyone even carry in New York? I know my Indiana permit isn't accepted there... Nor Pennsy. Nor D.C. I couldn't carry in/near any of the three locations of the travesty.

By-the-way, check out NRA-ILA for a possible National Carry Law that would allow a licensed to carry permit holder to carry in any state. Please contact your state rep to get onboard!

Cause Boobberg and Popeye said so, that's why.

The slaps in the face regarding the WTC site just keep coming faster and faster.

Nobody worried about my gun when I was digging there for four ****ing months.

Absolutely asinine.

During police memorial week in 2004, I was escorted onto a bus to go to the capital to hear the president speak (back when we had a prez who gave a **** and actually attended the service) and was told to bypass the metal detectors and enter the Capital's grounds armed to the teeth if I so chose. I then was four feet from GWB without so much as a third look from the SS.

Nobody checked me either when I went.

I understand that raised some eyebrows even from the NYPD. The order has been rescinded.

Such an odd place. If I read that correctly, the original prohibition was in place from the NYPD. Does NYC have some law that allows NYPD to decide where firearms are prohibited? I understand they can make a policy for their own members, but seems this impacts more than just their people.

The article seems to say that the NYPD received some free tickets to the 9-11 memorial and the guy in charge of distributing the tickets wrote out an internal memo on how the tickets were to be distributed. On that memo, he wrote down "no guns." The memo gets sent out and is picked up by the newspaper.

Looks like other people within the NYPD reads the memo, says "wait a minute... this can't be right" and calls the guy. A correction is made but the first memo has already made the newspapers.

I am SHOCKED that at the NYPD the right hand don't know what the left hand is doing! :)

They turned Ground Zero into a tourist attraction full of giggling idiots. It's disgusting the way people behave on those grounds.

I believe it. It disgusts me, and is dispicable, but I believe it this day and age. Seanmac, I can't even imagine how out and out insulting and beyond the whole charade has been about this.

I just received a curt e-mail to my question of out of state officers carring firearms at the site. "NO! Also, there are no facilities for locking up your firearm so do not bring it."

This from an unnamed person at the memorial site.

Aparently guns only provide security when strapped to the side of a uniformed officer... or so many people think.

Someone told me that there's plans in the future to start charging a fee to visit the memorial.

Don't known when. Don't know how much $. Don't know how true.

But it boggles my mind that (some private entity) may charge a fee to visit the WTC-9/11 memorial. Crazy.

This. And I'm always bothered walking past tourists smiling, laughing, posing for pictures in front of The Sphere in Battery Park, damaged by falling WTC debris.

Don't know how it is now day's but in the 70's I was at the Alamo and saw a Texas Ranger put the hand on a couple of load mouths and told them to show some respect or get the hell out.

So it's a public park that is somehow immune from LEOSA?
