Please Pay close ATTENTION. A NONRESIDENT who is doing anything more than PASSING THROUGH NY STATE CANNOT EVEN POSSESS a Handgun there.
If you drive into NY and STOP - EVEN FOR A FEW HOURS - YOU HAVE BROKEN NY LAW.
The ONLY Exception is for competition shooters attending a sponsored match.
The ONLY OC spray allowed in NY is what you are allowed to buy at Licensed Dealers - YOU CAN NOT BRING IN YOUR OWN from out of state.
