We will be going to upstate NY (Rochester) to visit my sister who may have cancer. Anyway, it is my understanding about me carrying there which is a no=no. I have a florida permit, and its good in ALL the other states we are travelling thru, however, not in NY. So I will be a no gunner. I thought about carrying, and locking it in a safe in the rear compartment while in NY, but its not worth it. How about having some kind of defensive spray in your pocket or OC?
