Default Moving from NY to FL

I have had it with NY not only the snow March, the S.A.F.E. act and my in-laws want to move to FL.
But I have firearms and NY has tough laws. I have a NY pistol permit that isn't good in any other state. But I also have a Utah non resident.

Do I have to ship my guns from one NY FFL to FL FFL.
Or can I drive to FL with my guns locked in a box.

I know of no law which prevents one from driving between states with legally posses weapons in the vehicle so long as they are stored "correctly". There's the catch. Different states, different laws.

My advice to you would be, put your firearms in a hard, lockable case. These can be bought very cheaply and the lock could just be a padlock on the outside of the case. Also I would take the bolt out of the gun, slide off the pistol, or "make nonoperational" by some means and put a trigger lock or some other locking device on each gun itself. Lastly store the ammunition separately and everything out of reach while driving.

That should get you safely through any state in the union regardless of how grumpy the cop is. Of course not getting pulled over in the first place is the best idea.

Good for you to be moving out from under the control of such an oppressive state. Good news for you is there is no permit or registration in Florida so enjoy!

Make that a positive statement.

(Smart move by the way.)

When headed South- DO NOT DETOUR THRU WASHINGTON DC.

They stil have not read the Constitution.



As said, unload, locked case, put in trunk. Obey speed limit. Make it across the Potomac to Virginia, yer golden.

Did it myself. Went from S. FL to NH and back again. Everything was locked except when I was in a state with permit reciprocity. As c3 stated, stay away from DC!!! Federal law protects the transport of firearms from state to state. Cops can be an ass if you do get pulled over. Just remember some good advice I once heard. You can beat the rap, you won't beat the riot. If they decide to put you through hell. Just keep your wits and get a lawyer. You'll be fine.

I think you are protected by the FOPA. I'm pretty sure it said unloaded and locked in trunk. Like C3 said, avoid DC. Why give those dogs any of your money anyways.

Welcome to free America! You'll love Florida. Glad to hear we are getting another freedom lover in the state.

Good for you. I will probably be following in your footsteps shortly. Maryland is becoming California East.

skywarrior!
Congratulations, Good for You and the family for being able to get out of NY. Let the political dogs like Cuomo and Bloomberg have their socialist state government. Unfortunately there are good folks and up state NY is beautiful. Wish they could succeed from the State of NY! Glad to hear you are making an escape to the land of the free. As the guys have said lock them up put them in the trunk and store any ammunition locked and separate from the weapons. Abide by the laws driving down. Be Safe!

Just dont bring any part of the state you are leaving with you. Remember you are a political refugee escaping tyranny.

Some states have different laws on what is legal in their jurisdiction. California had laws limiting magazine capacity. A cowboy shooter I know was arrested for having a Henry Lever action even though it was stored properly regarding Interstate Commerce protection.
