There is a reason why 18 USC 926A is called the "safe passage" provision of the Firearm Owners' Protection Act of 1986. Your post was irrelevant.
    Correct. 49 CFR 1544.203 is what you want for flying with a firearm:

    (f)Firearms in checked baggage. No aircraft operator may knowingly permit any person to transport in checked baggage:
    (1) Any loaded firearm(s).
    (2) Any unloaded firearm(s) unless -
    (i) The passenger declares to the aircraft operator, either orally or in writing before checking the baggage that any firearm carried in the baggage is unloaded;
    (ii) The firearm is carried in a hard-sided container;
    (iii) The container in which it is carried is locked, and only the individual checking the baggage retains the key or combination; and
    (iv) The checked baggage containing the firearm is carried in an area that is inaccessible to passengers, and is not carried in the flightcrew compartment,.
    (3) Any unauthorized explosive or incendiary.
    (g)Ammunition. This section does not prohibit the carriage of ammunition in checked baggage or in the same container as a firearm. Title 49 CFR part 175 provides additional requirements governing carriage of ammunition on aircraft.

    49 CFR 175.10 covers ammunition:
    (8) Small arms ammunition for personal use carried by a crewmember or passenger in checked baggage only, if securely packed in boxes or other packagings specifically designed to carry small amounts of ammunition. Ammunition clips and magazines must also be securely boxed. This paragraph does not apply to persons traveling under the provisions of 49 CFR 1544.219.

    The reason 18 USC 926A largely does not apply when flying is because the airport where you leave from is your state of origin, the airport where you arrive is your destination state. 18 USC 926A does not cover you in either your state of origin or your destination state, it only covers you in the states in between those two.
    Anyone who says, "I support the 2nd amendment, BUT"... doesn't. Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman.

    You need to live in NY to have a NY license or have a Business in NY

  4. Do you live in NY

  5. When you check a handgun in checked luggage for a flight out of any of the NYC airports, LGA, EWR or JFK, the Airline Agent at check-in will call the Port Authority PD over to "check you out". If you do not have the proper permit to possess that handgun in that jurisdiction (NY City Permit?? not sure) then you will almost assuredly miss your flight and be spending a night in the Gray Bar Hotel. Yeah, I know, it shouldn't be that way......... but it is.
