There have been numerous non NY residents who have been arrested at NY airports because they did not have a NY pistol license. Please don't confuse the two and please don't spread rumors without fact.
I recently traveled through LGA, checked my handgun, and the PA officer who cleared me commented there had been 5 non-res arrests in the previous week alone.
