    Is there ANY gun I can take to NY???

    Looking for some info- I am originally from NY- western NY no where near NYC. Actually only about 20 miles in from PA border. I can carry in every state until NY. I have avoided NY like the plague but since I have a 20 yo son who is living there right now as well as other family I am going to have to suck it up and make a visit this summer sometime. I know there is no way I can take a handgun to NY, but in reading their statutes it looks like maybe certain shotguns would be ok in vehicle, uloaded? My issue is not so much the there, it's the fact I will be driving there from NC with my 3 other children by myself. I'd like to have something if it's legal. Of course, I will also need to check the other states I will have to go through, but I know NY will be the worst. The rest will be WV, VA, PA.

    any long gun will be fine as long as you have the weapon unloaded, in a case and the ammo is separated from the weapon.

    It appears you would be alright with a shotgun in Virginia. Taken from the VSP website:

    15.2-1209.1. Counties may regulate carrying of loaded firearms on public highways.

    The governing body of any county is hereby empowered to adopt ordinances making it unlawful for any person to carry or have in his possession, for the purpose of hunting, while on any part of a public highway within such county a loaded firearm when such person is not authorized to hunt on the private property on both sides of the highway along which he is standing or walking; and to provide a penalty for violation of such ordinance not to exceed a fine of $100. The provisions of this section shall not apply to persons carrying loaded firearms in moving vehicles or for purposes other than hunting, or to persons acting at the time in defense of persons or property.

    (Code 1950, 18.1-272; 1975, cc. 14, 15, 18.2-287; 2004, c. 462; 2007, c. 203.)

    I run into the same issue when going up to visit family a little ways north up the 219. Basically, you can ether find a place near the PA / PRNY boarder to stash it and be prey for criminals or be a felon and become prey for the criminals that run that state. It truly is a no win situation. The state line sign sign should say 'Welcome to New York if the criminals don't get you we will' instead of 'The Empire State'

    I've got to go to Bronx, NY tomorrow and spend Thursday in Queens on business. Don't think I won't be bummed because I can't carry.

    I had to spend almost 3 months in that cesspool several years back on business. The best part of NYC was seeing it in the rear view mirror. It is no place for the sane.

    I'm finally on my last week of a 3 month business trip in Northern NJ... come Friday I'll look in the rear view mirror, see NJ in the dust and never look back.

    Here are the NY State laws:

    Here are the NYC laws:
    http://www.nraila.org/statelawpdfs/NYCCL.pdf

    NON-RESIDENTS

    It is unlawful for any person to carry, possess or
    transport a handgun in or through the state unless he
    has a valid New York license. (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 the 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).
    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.
    Non-resident target shooters may enter or pass through
    New York State with handguns for the purposes of any
    NRA approved competition or IHMSA sanctioned match,
    within 48 hours of the 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. This provision does not apply in NY
    cities not wholly contained within a single county or to
    people with felony convictions.
    Possession of firearms by a person who is a nonresident
    of this state is lawful while attending or traveling to or
    from an organized convention or exhibition approved by
    the NRA, and in which the nonresident is a registered
    participant within forty-eight hours of such event,
    provided that the nonresident has not been previously
    convicted of a felony and further provided that the
    firearms are transported unloaded in a locked opaque
    container together with a copy of the convention or
    exhibition program, convention or exhibition schedule or
    convention or exhibition registration card. This provision
    does not apply in NY cities not wholly contained within
    a single county.
    A non-immigrant alien may possess a rifle or shotgun
    for use while hunting provided he has a valid hunting
    license issued by New York State and an approved gun
    import form from the BATFE.
    Here is the NRA-ILA State's listing.

    PurpleDragon said he will be traveling up Rt-219, that road leads to BUFFALO..............

    the OTHER END OF NEW YORK STATE.

    Sheesh, why is it everytime people see the words *NEW YORK STATE* the only thing anyone can think of is New York City?

    Most residents of NY, would love to see "the city" fall into Long Island Sound, or secede from the rest of the state as 'the city' is a huge drain on my tax dollars.

    Beside Mayor Adolf Bloomberg is a flaming anti-gun liberal that believes his personal beliefs are what EVERYONE wants regardless of what the people actually want.

    You may "open carry" a high pressure watergun as long as it is not that evil black color.

    Why not find a gun shop near the border in PA and drop off your travel gun for a "cleaning" while you are in NY, then pick it up on the way back? Totally legal and should cost you less than $20. You also won't be as limited while you are on the road. You'll just have to get by in NY state with an alternative weapon. Maybe some OC and a tactical flashlight?

    Excellent thought.

    Yes, I am going to my hometown which is about halfway between Erie PA and Buffalo. I am going to look into gun shops in Erie PA to possibly do as Superhouse suggested as that is an excellent idea.
