Default Trying to Travel from JfK or Newark with a Gun is a nightmare, please help

So I'm going on vacation and want to bring my pistol. I have a New York State permit, but it is not valid in NYC, if I try to declare it at JFK they will arrest me, I called, and port authority confirmed.

Newark is just as bad because nj requires a permit, and my ny permit is not valid, same story.

My thought was to buy one at my destination and keep it there. Thing is, I don't own a vacation home there, so where would you guys store it? Airport locker? Bank saftey deposit box? I think those are expensive.

Ffl one to myself? Any thoughts?

Please don't say "move to a free state".

Buy a Wilson Combat 1911 and take your vacation in Kentucky, I'll hold on to it for you.

In all seriousness, I wouldn't buy one and store it...

1. Fly out of Philly?
2. Sorry, under Federal law, you can only buy a handgun in your state of residence.
3. What state are you vacationing in?

They will not arrest you. They WILL ask the police to come over. They, in turn, will check your license, check the gun, delay you, yell, make you sweat. Then send you on your flight per Federal law. In NY. Stay away from Jersey -- on a good day they are just mobsters.

As an ex-NYer born and raised in the city I will say one thing: They will arrest you on the spot. Period. The process of arrest brings revenue either way you look at it. And you will pay.

NJ will not automatically arrest you for declaring a properly cased firearm at the airline counter. If you stop for lunch before checking the firearm that's a different story. Keeping within the safe passage transport laws is a challenge in NJ but it can be done...you just need to be careful. But I agree, avoid the hassle if you can.

I am assuming you are "transporting a handgun." If you are saying you want to carry it in the airport then I agree...don't even consider it, you will go to jail.

I'm addressing "2" in your reply. You can purchase a handgun in any state in the US that will allow the sale to a non-resident. You cannot take delivery. Your purchase must be shipped to an FFL in your state of residence in order to comply with your state laws.
