    With the recent Supreme Court decision regarding the Chicago gun ban now in effect has there been any change in the NY law prohibiting non residents possessing handguns in NY state?

    It is my understanding that only residents can possess handguns and only with a permit. No reciprocity exists with other states CCW permits.

    I don't expect to carry my gun in NY but would like to have it close by in the trunk. Is this now legal?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    Handgun laws vary by county in my homestate of NY, but if I recall my last reading, you can tansport a handgun only if it has been ground to powder and cast into the hood of your vehicle.
