I understand you don't have to worry about the PA laws, they can only sell you what is legal in yourHOME state. For instance an M1 is considered an "assault rifle" in NYso a NY resident won't be able to buy one in PA. Good luck, I'm glad I don't live in NJ. []
(Sorry to rub it in)

NJ gun laws are bad. But as for NY, just remember it is only in the city that we have crazy laws. Upstate is pretty lienent and I know a few people who have full carry permits. Lucky for me, I am a cop, and since HR218, I really don't have to follow any laws other than that one! I love it.

ronrobb,
Since you are a New Jersey resident, you would have to have a NJ firearms ID card. Just be aware not all PA dealers will sell to NJ residents.

Actually one side note... because we purchase our guns in NY using our Police ID cards from work, it is actually pretty hard for me to get a gun anywhere but in NYC or the surrounding counties.

I was in Chenango County NY and tried to buy ammo with my ID card and theyrefused to sell it to me because I did not have a valid NY gun permit, technically.

It would be nice if now that the Fed Gov has given us the right to carry everwhere, they would issue a nation police concealed carry ID card to simplify the process.

I'd like to see a nation wide concealed carry ID card for all citizens. It's strange, I have concealed carry permits for both NY and PA. 2 very populated and liberal states. Well if I'm safe to carry there why not every state?
