It is pitiful, but true I can pack a pistol (assuming I drive around IL) from WA to PA, but when I hit the NYS line, I can no longer even "possess" that very same pistol. (It originally came out of NY, and was even licensed to carry in NYC. Gift from FIL)
HR822 will be the greatest thing since sliced bread if it makes it though. I will even be able to visit my wife's family again.
Bottom line is: If you do not live in NY and have not jumped through their hoops, until HR822 (or something like it) passes, leave your handgun home. Not worth the risk.
