Of course my statement is true

I can't control what a particular cop will arrest for, but there is nothing illegal about traveling through NYC from upstate to Long Island with a properly locked unloaded handgun, and a valid NYS pistol permit to carry.

NYS law, Section 400, number 6 "Such a license to carry or possess shall be valid within the city of New York in the absence of a permit issued by the police commissioner of that city, provided... being transported by the licensee in a locked container and the trip through the city of New York is continuous and interrupted."
