Not from the state but generally speaking you are required to have the firearm locked up and ammo seperate.

JJ. The best advice I can give you is to talk to one of the Troopers at the local NYSP barracks. I myself have a lock box bolted to the floor of my truck, and located behind the seat. I unload, place the magazine in the door pocket, and lock my pistol in the box. Upon returning to my vehicle, I unlock the box, remove the mag from the door pocket, reload, and reset my gear after I am in the truck. To the best of my knowledge, unloaded in the locked glovebox is fine when you are not in the vehicle, but I am not a lawyer or a LEO. Check with your local LEOs, or maybe the pistol permit clerk. One or the other should be able to help you.

And yes, NY's laws can be very vague, and can be interpreted in several different ways sometimes. Concealed carry laws are especially unclear. By the way, If yoiu get a clear answer, pleas epost it so the rest of us know what it is. Thanks and best of luck.

There's no law on leaving your gun in your car. I live in Orange county. When I got my permit they included a letter with info and it suggested not to leave your gun in your car without locking it up.

I don’t think there is a law either, but you are responsible for your firearm. Leaving it unsecured when it’s not being used by you may be construed as negligence, and probably will be considered negligence if it is used in a crime.

No I agree its not responsible and the county clerk doesnt want you doing it as stated in their letter when you get your permit. They don't recommend it its just not a "law".

Firearms laws vary from county to county in NY on top of all the state laws. Check with the local Sheriff's office on the transport requirements for the county you live in.

I work at the V.A. It was told by every employee, you're are not and I say again you are not allowed to carry a fire arm into any federal facility. You will have to check it in at the the police or security. I questioned a Buffalo Police Officer about his weapon while visiting a friend here. He replied that he was not aware and he would go talk to the officer downstairs so he would'nt get jammed up.
I then spoke with a seargent about it, he claimed they knew,which they did'nt and I brought it to the attention of the assistant director and he said they were not allowed to enter the building with out checking out there weapons. So do not attempt to enter a federal building with a weapon without checking it in.

Even the Federal law that allows CCW in Federal Parks for persons CCW licensed in that particular State does not allow you to carry in any building in which Federal employees work. There are even signs on the restrooms indicating that you cannot carry in the building.

The NRA tooted this as a great law allowing CCWers to carry in Federal Parks, what they didn't tell you is this you have to hold it until you get home.
