New York Man Arrested for Negligent Discharge Which Injured his Girlfriend

Police arrested an Olean man for accidentally shooting his live-in girlfriend earlier this week.
Around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, police charged Logan Cooper, 24, of 1530 Martin St. with first-degree reckless endangerment, a class D felony; second-degree assault, a class D felony; and fourth-degree criminal possession of a weapon, a class E felony. 
Authorities said Cooper accidentally shot Connie Mascho, 28, in the right shoulder with a .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol at 8:53 p.m. Monday. Cooper also injured one of his fingers in the incident. 

Cooper, police say, does not have a pistol permit, as required under state law.
Would this be considered a SAFE Act arrest? Do you think he would have been arrested had there been no permit requirement?

  1. Legal possession of a handgun in New York has required a license since 1911.

    1. This was Olean, NY- not New York City.

    2. To my knowledge, the Sullivan Act applies statewide.

    3. Right, you are. I always thought it was a city law.

      "Right, you are. I always thought it was a city law."

      Try telling that to the arresting officer WHEN he reads you "your rights" and throws your ass in the cell with Bubba, if you know what I mean......

      If you fail to comprehend gun laws (due to sheer ignorance or the typical lack of cognitive ability), then you probably have no business owning a firearm of any kind.

    5. E.N., if absence makes the heart grow fonder, you should provide us more opportunities to think fondly of you.

    6. So, nothing to do with the SAFE Act.

    7. If an officer arrests me under the Sullivan act, I will try telling him/her that I am not in either New York City, or New York State, and that they are failing to comprehend that those laws don't apply where I am at, regardless of wther it is a local or state law. I think I'll win that debate.

  2. Unless the gun had an 11-round or larger magazine, I don't see how the offensively misnamed "SAFE Act" would have had anything to do with this arrest.

      The NY SAFE act codifies enhanced penalties for the use of a handgun in the commission of a violent crime. Contrary to your ignorance, it may indeed invoke certain provisions of the NY SAFE act.

  3. Why don't all you people mind your own fucking business and don't worry about what other people do. There's a start.

    1. That's brilliant. Too bad the easy access to guns didn't only affect those who own those guns.
