    New York City residents who want to own a gun may soon be denied permits if they are litterbugs, if they are bad drivers, or if they have fallen behind on a few bills.

    Under proposed revisions to the police department's handgun, rifle and shotgun permit procedures, the NYPD can reject gun license applicants for a number of reasons, including: [/URL]If they have been arrested or convicted of almost any "violation," in any state; having a "poor driving history"; having been fired for "circumstances that demonstrate lack of good judgment"; having "failed to pay legally required debts"; being deemed to lack "good moral character"; or if any other information demonstrates "other good cause for the denial of the permit."

    Critics say many of the restrictions are vague, have nothing to do with one's fitness to own a gun and are unconstitutional.

    Would this include guns being taken away from those in foreclosure?

    How would the proposed law change anything in a practical way? Isn't NYC one of the "may issue" holdouts? My understanding was that it was primarily the criminal population who were armed anyway.

    another case of a progressive law which maintains that you are guilty til proven innocent.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
