Does a person or persons on the sidewalk using a sound amplification device to deliver a religious message need a permit or other permission?

@gollum,
It seems like it:
Quote:
A sound permit is issued for events that require amplified sound by a device. Sound permits will be issued by the local precincts. A "sound device" is any radio or device or apparatus for the amplification of any sound from any radio, phonograph, or other sound making or sound producing device, or any device or apparatus for the reproduction or amplification of the human voice.

@tsarstepan,
That's the reason the Wall St. demonstrators can't use a bullhorn but are relying on mass repetition of the speaker's words. They have no municipal sanction to be doing what they're doing.

@Lustig Andrei,
Thank you.

But is there a separate rule for a person espousing a religious message?

@gollum,
Did you bother to read the link I sent? It's the official NYPD policy page and there is no distinction between secular and religious speakers.

@tsarstepan,
Thank you. I guess you are right.

I was thinking of individuals/organizations that lecture people passing by on the sidewalk about their religious beliefs. They often use sound amplification equipment. I don't believe the policy specifically addresses them.
