This evening, I took a stroll around Midtown Manhattan with a goal: locate a Times Square Gun Free Zone sign. I entered the Second Amendment safe space at 6th Avenue and 49th Street. But I saw no sign! Then I walked to Broadway and 49th Street. Still no sign! I walked down Broadway to 43rd Street. I saw no signs.
I then turned up 43rd to 6th avenue, and I found it. A sign!
The sign reads:
Times Square Gun Free Zone. Licensed gun carriers may not enter with a gun unless specifically authorized by law. Violation of this prohibition is a felony.
I suspect these signs are temporary. The laminated printouts were attached to the pole with zip ties.
As best as I can tell, the signs were posted along 6th Avenue from 42nd Street through 47th Street. Alas, I entered the Constitutional DMZ at 49th Street. No notice. But still a felony.
