Thread: Need help about rifle transaction out of NYC

  1. How does NY State , or how did they find out about his weapons. I live in Western NY, and the only weapons they know I have are my Handguns. They don't have a clue about any Shotguns, or Rifles

    and considering I lived in NJ for more than 25 years and then transferred those very same weapons to FLA. was I in violation of federal laws for all these years? I don't think so.

    When the uncle, a resident of New York, transfers the rifle to the nephew, a resident of New Jersey, the uncle violates 18 USC 922 (a)(5) and commits a Federal Felony. When the nephew returns to New Jersey with the rifle, he violates 18 USC 922 (a)(3) and commits his own seperate Federal Felony. The transfer between two residents of different states MUST GO THROUGH AN FLL to be legal!

    18 USC 922 - Unlawful acts
    (a) It shall be unlawful—
    (3) for any person, other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to transport into or receive in the State where he resides (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, the State where it maintains a place of business) any firearm purchased or otherwise obtained by such person outside that State,
    (5) for any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) to transfer, sell, trade, give, transport, or deliver any firearm to any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) who the transferor knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, does not maintain a place of business in) the State in which the transferor resides;
    (b) It shall be unlawful for any licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to sell or deliver—
    (3) any firearm to any person who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, does not maintain a place of business in) the State in which the licensee’s place of business is located, except that this paragraph (A) shall not apply to the sale or delivery of any rifle or shotgun to a resident of a State other than a State in which the licensee’s place of business is located if the transferee meets in person with the transferor to accomplish the transfer, and the sale, delivery, and receipt fully comply with the legal conditions of sale in both such States

    NYC Requires a permit for all long guns just like pistols. They need to be notified about disposition and will require proof of such. If you don't dispose of guns properly, they will arrest you. BTW - here is the letter they have sent to everyone.

    bwahahaha, I left NYC in 1982 with ny registered handguns and never told them squat, I've been back hundreds if not thousands of times ( I commuted to work daily for almost 20 years after moving out)
    I have not been arrested, the only issue I could envision is if I ever moved back and tried to register guns there in the future.

    He lives in New York City and the city makes residents register all firearms.

    back in the day registration was mandatory but it was self reporting, I used to buy long guns out of the the city and never register them. the only ones who cared about the registration was NYC the rest of the state did not enforce the city regs

  8. Some people would rather not violate laws if they are given the option. That's why I believe it is only fair to inform them of what the laws state so they can make an informed decision with the facts.

    Don't egg him on,I'm not so sure he knows all what he claims to but he definatly lives for this stuff, funny thing every time I have ever tried to look up some regulation he's quoted, I cannot find it, or it is not specific, I lived in NY for a lot of years before moving south, and they do have some really screwed gun laws but long guns are not treated the same as handguns, so I would say go and get your uncles guns, give a notorized paper saying you were given the guns and take them home, I know it would be easy to say transfer them through FFL dealers, but that could cost $25-$50 a gun, and if you did try to call authoritys to get a specific answer, you wont or you will most likely get some LEOs interpretation of the law
    Bad Guys of the world beware the next time you think about jumping on a old guy, because its a fair bet he's to old to fight and probably to fat to run, but can put one in your eye at 50ft with his weak hand

    My suggestion is definitely easier said than done. You could simply have your uncle give you the guns and then if any trouble ensues fight it in court and use the 2nd Amendment as your defense.
