    The Second Amendment only applies to the United States of America.

    IIRC, Bernhard Goetz tried this in the 1980's. He's alive, but he was char-broiled for carrying. I hear screwdrivers work well, in a pinch.

    PEPPER SPRAY IN NEW YORK: Legal with restrictions. The possession by persons who are not felons or who have not been convicted of an assault, 18 or over for the protection of person or property and its otherwise lawful use is legal. The definition is “a pocket sized spray device which contains and releases a chemical or organic substance which is intended to produce temporary physical discomfort or disability through being vaporized or otherwise dispensed in the air. There are certain labeling requirements. Sales require both a seller’s license and the completion by a purchaser of a registration form. New York residents may only purchase from licensed Firearms Dealers or licensed Pharmacists in that state. No more than two sprays may be sold at any one time to a single purchaser.

Put it in your pocket, or IWB under your shirt but don't let it show....yeah...NYC laws are
    The rules on pepper spray is that they may not be purchased out of state then brought into NY. Honestly though if you are gonna use spray get the good stuff. It is merely a violation carrying spray other than the ones sold at ny gun stores.
    One more step and it's on!

    In case it hasn't been mentioned, no tasers are allowed.

    I carry pepper spray purchased at gun shop: WEST SIDE PISTOL RANGE is the only public one in the city. You can get them from pharmacists as well, but i have yet to ask one...?

    Be forewarned the NYPD has a significant undercover presence. If you are caught and convicted with an illegal firearm in NYC, there is a mandatory 3.5 year prison sentence. Don't do anything stupid.

    With respect to knives, I would be careful. I think a pocket knife will not cause any trouble, but if you bring a folding fighting knife (even one under 4 inch as others have mentioned) you could get in hot water. See the MTA Code of conduct below.... specifically the, "includes, but not limited too..."

    NYC MTA Rules of Conduct:

    MTA NYC Transit - Rules of Conduct
    Section 1050.8

    Weapons and other dangerous instruments.

    1. No weapon, dangerous instrument, or any other item intended for use as a weapon may be carried in or on any facility or conveyance. This provision does not apply to law enforcement personnel and persons to whom a license for such weapon has been duly issued and is in force (provided in the latter case the weapon is concealed from view). For the purposes hereof, a weapon or dangerous instrument shall include, but not be limited to, a firearm, switchblade knife, gravity knife, boxcutter, straight razor or razor blades that are not wrapped or enclosed in a protective covering, sword, shotgun or rifle.
    2. No explosives or other highly combustible materials, or radioactive materials, may be carried on or in any facility or conveyance, except as authorized by the Authority.
    3. Subject to other provisions of the law, this section shall not apply to a rifle or shotgun which is unloaded and carried in an enclosed case, box or other container which completely conceals the item from view and identification as a weapon.

    Technically, not even that, if they found out you'd intended on carrying it as a means for self defense.

    Don't worry, the Mayor will protect you.

    A few months ago on the "Today Show" they had a segment on self-defense.
    You know how that went: Take out your key or a pen and poke the BG!

    Essentially if it is designed to keep a BG from applying his "trade" then it is not allowed for carry or use from what I have heard. There are too many places in this country that are more concerned about an outlaw's safety as opposed to the law abiding citizen. I'm just wondering when NYC are going to disarm their own police. Remember at one time they were disarmed, when they were first formed. It didn't take long for NYC to allow them to carry.
