    Travel advice?

    I am planning a trip from Fla to NY State, spend a week in Westchester County, north of NYC, then return. While transiting SC, Md, NJ, NY I plan to have the gun in a locked case and the ammo in another locked box. Both located in the mini van in a location difficult to access. While in NY I plan to keep the gun and ammo locked separately in the home I will be visiting. Any advice?

    Advice?

    1. Take gun from locked box.
    2. Take ammo from other locked box.
    3. Load gun.
    4. Fire as many rounds as necessary into minivan until it is dead, dead, dead.
    5. Go to dealer, buy new vehicle (anything other than a minivan).
    6. Have a safe, enjoyable and memorable trip.

    Just kidding.

    All except for #6.

    Stay safe.

    You're out of luck in NY.
    Not that anybody is looking.
    Problem is you're not passing through NY.

    Almost correct. You cannot possess at your destination so follow steps #1 and #2 and leave it at home. The alternative is to take it with you in violation of the laws of NYS. If you do that we don't want to know. Here is a summary of the law and is in no way legal advice.

    A non-resident citizen may possess a rifle or shotgun in New York, as long as it is unloaded while being transported. No person may carry, possess or transport a handgun in or through the state unless he has a valid New York license. New York does not issue licenses to non-residents nor does it recognize licenses issued by other states. (A provision of federal law provides a defense to state or local laws which would prohibit the passage of persons with firearms in interstate travel. If a person is traveling from any place where he may lawfully possess and transport a firearm to any other place where he may lawfully possess and transport such firearm and the firearm is unloaded and in the trunk. In vehicles without a trunk, the unloaded firearm shall be in a locked container other than the glove compartment or console. Necessary stops, e.g., gasoline and rest, seem permissible.) A member or coach of an accredited college or university target pistol team may transport a handgun into or through New York to participate in a collegiate, Olympic or target pistol shooting competition provided that the handgun is unloaded and carried in a locked carrying case and the ammunition is carried in a separate locked container. An alien may possess a rifle or shotgun for use while hunting provided he has a valid New York hunting license. "If such (handgun) license is issued to an alien, or to a person not a citizen of and usually a resident in the state, the licensing officer shall state in the license the particular reason for the issuance and the names of the persons certifying to the good character of the applicant." Non-resident target shooters may enter or pass through New York State with handguns for the purposes of any NRA approved competition if the competitor has in his possession a copy of the match program, proof of entry and a pistol license from his state of residence. The handgun must be unloaded and transported in a locked opaque container.

    NO NO NO - you CANNOT STOP and STAY in NY while possessing a
    Handgun!!!!


    You are allowed to PASS THROUGH NY if the gun is unloaded and
    locked up as previously stated.

    Any reason why you're leaving it locked up in SC?
    Anyone may have a loaded handgun in the glovebox or center console - does not have to be locked. No permit required.

    It is but I can get to my cousin's relatively quickly and easily whereas there would be a lot of transit time in NJ and a week in NY. I just get the willy's thinking about traveling disarmed any more than I have to, so I think the minimal risk is worth it.

    hrm.... so what if he is "passing through" VERY slowly?

    To those that paid for my freedom,
    I WILL NEVER FORGET.

    As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.
