Ever hear or wonder about the origin of the infamous Sullivan Law, which prohibits gun ownership in New York?
Here it is explained. Now I understand. The law was to protect the criminals, not law abiding citizens like my father, who willingly gave up a magnificent vintage shotgun because he wanted to be a good citizen.
I never knew why. I was just a little girl - maybe sever, but the beauty of the Damascus barrel and the graceful lines of the gun itself always impressed me as fine art.
I guess he was afraid of a house-to-house search. Had he needed it for our protection, we were left defenseless. Just something to think about when you read about this really sinister, illegal law which needs to be rescinded.
