    Is It A Good Idea To Carry In New York City?

    My wife and I are going to New York City in August and again in November for the Macy's Thanksgiving day parade. I think I have read various threads on this board and others that most people not recommend CC in New York state and/or New York City because of the gun laws and law enforcement.

    Can anyone give me some advice or thoughts?

    Thanks!

    New York does not recognize Kansas, or any other state. http://www.handgunlaw.us/states/newyork.pdf

    I can tell you right now, New York State might recognize KS... (But that doesn't sound right), New York CITY does NOT, they don't even recognize most New York State permits! Bottom line if you get caught you are going to jail for a felony and will probably never carry again unless you are extremely wealthy and find a very good lawyer.

    Call us from jail and let us know how it works out for you!

    Kansas honors NY, but NY DOES NOT HONOR ANY OTHER STATE!

    Do not carry into the state of NY, all you will get is arrested.

    We went to NY city last summer. Stick to the busy tourist places and you be fine. I bought a few cheap o folding knives because if you go to places like top of the rock or the 911 site they aren't allowed. I put them in a planter somewhere near the entrance. Sometimes they were there when I came out sometimes not.

    Leave you gun at home.

    Not a good idea to carry in NYC.

    I find it better to avoid NYC. I'm not a fan of big cities or crowds.

    Hope this helps. As you can see, your KS permit is not recognized in NY state and NY city is even worse.

    I talk regularly to one of our members here who does not come on the forum to much anymore, who currently lives in Fl.
    He is retired LEO from a city 4 miles east of NYC.
    His son is currently a sheriff right in the thick of it, and his son tells him, that the consensus right now is to NOT bring any firearm into the city.
    Can you imagine that?
    A retired LEO from that area(spitting distance), and the climate is such that they believe if something were to happen, they would be up on charges.

    I would not take one.
    You also will not catch me dead or alive in NYC.

    There's a lot of country to see besides that hell hole.

    Whoever said "Better judged by 12 than carried by six" did not live in NYC.
    Don't even THINK about your guns when in NYC..

    Contrary to what some feel,it's a great place to visit and is safe as any other city as long as you stay in reasonable neighborhoods.
    As far as carrying,I guess you have never heard of the Sullivan law.
    If you are going to do a bunch of travel with a gun,I suggest you take the time to go to Handgunlaw.us and learn how the permit "system" works.

    News for you...police can arrest without a warrant if they have probable cause a crime is being committed...in other words, if a police offier saw a robbery occurring, he would have to obtain a warrant first...naaah, warrantless arrests are made everyday by police officers....all quite legal.
