No offensive but its probably easier just to move out of New York. You'd probably even be treated like an American citizen! (as long as you didn't move to Connecticut, Maine, Colorado, California....). It is kind of cool to think of NY as a "1911 state" and to carry a "New York reload." It's just badass to carry two 1911's : ) But I would prefer to actually have ALL my constitutional rights. Good luck. 11 months to get a carry permit is damn near tyrannical!
