Despite the FOPA Act of 1986, NY doesn't have any "peaceable journey" laws. It doesn't matter where you are coming from or where your destination is, if you come through NY with a handgun, your dead meat.
Most states do not require a license or registration to possess a handgun. Am I correct that a would-be competitor who does not have a carry permit from his home state would not be able to participate in a match in New York?LIProgun said:One of the few exemptions in NY law for possessing a handgun without a NYS license is for non-residents licensed in their home state who are attending a match sanctioned by the NRA or IMHSA.
I don't believe so. The NRA sanctions Action Pistol (e.g., Bianchi Cup) matches, but not USPSA/IPSC matches, AFAIK. Maybe some of the USPSA competitors here know better.Nemo said:Thanx LIProgun! Now, is a USPSA match considered "...under auspices of, or approved by, the National Rifle Association" :?:
