Note this is a cross post with ar15 forum. Having reviewed a few boards I haven't gotten a satisfactory response from posters on a couple of questions 1) Federal Transportation laws as it relates to NYC licensees' 2) Why is there a 3 month Wait time for pistol purchase orders on top of the 3 month wait period to apply for a purchase order. 3) What is the proper way to apply a C and R FFL in NYC. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is a first cut unedited draft. I will be directing this letter to the NYPD licensing Division. I have several questions and concerns regarding the issuing of pistol purchase orders, the transportation of firearms across state lines and the ability to obtain a curios and relics federal firearms license. I have concerns about the transportation of firearms across state lines from one jurisdiction where I can legally posses one(New York City) to another jurisdiction(Florida) where I may legally posses one. I understand federal law Title 18 § 926A(Interstate transportation of firearms) Protects an individual from transporting a firearm from any place where he/she may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any other place where he/she may lawfully possess and carry such firearm. What is the NYPDs stance on this law and NYC licensees transporting firearms from their residence to another jurisdiction where they can legally own a firearm provided they follow local and federal guidelines for transporting the firearm (Unloaded in a locked container)? I do a bit of personal travel mostly to Florida and I also intend on taking a few Black Water Pistol classes for my Birthday it would be prohibitively expensive to FFL (Ship) the firearms back and forth to dealers in NYC and my destination. I have attached a US Department of Justice opinion in reference to several incidents involving transportation of firearms to and from John F. Kennedy Airport. I understand that in 2006 the New York City Council passed legislation to limit one pistol purchase every 3 months. In dropping off my request for a purchase order I was informed that it would take an additional 10-12 weeks making the actual time 6 months to purchase a firearm. Why does it take 10-12 weeks to process a purchase order? I have become very interested in shooting in matches a 6 month turnaround time would be a great hindrance to my new hobby. I would like to apply for a curios and relics federal firearms license in order to obtain discounted ammunition and supplies. I have contacted the ATF field office in Brooklyn in regards to this matter and they have informed it that the box requiring law enforcement sign off should be signed off by the local precinct. What is the NYPDs stance on obtaining a curios and relics federal firearms license? Is the ATF directing me in the appropriate direction for sign off and if not who should I go to? Any answers\assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
