If your firearm is locked within checked baggage with a TSA inspection sticker on it, and you happen to land by air travel in either Islip, LaGuardia or JFK airports, you will be immediately arrested and charged. Period. These are traps you need to be aware of. Beware!

no. no handguns are allowed in NYS without a permit.. its allowed only if you drive through NY with NO stops. spending the night. and even stopping for food could possibly be breaking the law. when driving through with no stops, it has to be locked away in the trunk and away from ammo. for no other reason can you posses a pistol in NYS without a NYS pistol permit.

Just don't stop in NYC for food or gas. Go right through that 'city trap.'

I used to drive from Maine to IL quite often, it's impossible to not stop for gas, food or the restroom in NY. What a bunch of asshats making laws in that state, as bad as IL or maybe worse.

There are no TRAPS landing in NYC. What nonsense. They will hand you your luggage with the gun and off you go. I do it all the time.

However, when LEAVING with a handgun, the policy is to call over either the NYC Transit or regular Police. Once these donut-eaters arrive at their leisure, they will harass you and delay to make you miss your flight. Last departure I built in an extra hour and a half, just made my flight and only because a supervisor walked me through security, someone in baggage tried to steal my gun from the safe that was cable-tied into the luggage, and note I am authorized to have a handgun there!

Federal law allows you to transit transportation hubs in posession of a firearm regardless of local law. However, without the right authority, you may not stop or stay in NY City or NY State with a handgun unless it is licensed. Carrying for citizens of the state is hard enough to arrange, almost impossible, and essentially impossible in NYC except for wealthy celebrities who donate alot of money to anti-gun Mayor Bloomberg.

Shotgun might be better. Ticket agent just asks if gun is unloaded, maybe locked, you sign a card and slip it into the case... But even there, remember, you are only passing through Bloomberg's city, NY CITY -- you didn't and will not stop anywhere in the five buroughs. Right!?

As for NJ, I would avoid it with any arm at any cost always. The donut-eaters there WILL arrest people regardless of the law and have the attitude "so, sue me." They are sued, the state taxes people to pay, and the tough cop who saved so many people is promoted. In the meantime you are in jail and considered a felon which will always follow you somehow -- they do not care.

In both NJ and NYC only the police are supposed to have guns they are sure, otherwise you are automatically a criminal.

Aren't these statements kinda counter intuitive?

Perhaps, which is why I was careful about writing the truth so people wouldn't have to intuit anything.

What they definitely are is counter-heresay. Counter rumor.

What they are not is contradictory.
