Thanks for all the information my new friends. This is what is so frustrating about NYS—no one there really seems to know what the law is. The Federal law is fairly simple to understand on this subject, but state law and even county law in NYS is so problematic and confusing no one can make an assessment—one way or another. Even lawyers don't agree on anything, and the frustrating part is no one knows the law until your arrested and then (?)...well I won't even go there. I just wish there was somewhere a person could go to find out what the law really is without paying a lawyer 1M per hour do find the NYS gun (ever changing) laws. I just wish I could leave that state for good and stay in Florida. The taxes are lower, the weather is better and that song "Dixie" is sounding better everyday to me.
