Hi All, I just got a Nassau County Target/Hunting Pistol license. I do business trips to North Carolina monthly and was wondering if I am able to fly with my pistol there out of JFK with the license I have or will I have issues? As a side note, North Carolina is a open carry state by default however they accept NYS Carry Permits to conceal carry. As my permit is restricted in Nassau County, Do you guys think I will be able to conceal carry in North Carolina while on business? TIA

Hey,

 

I think the list shows which takes accept the NC permit.

 

On the site it says that they accept permits from all 50 states:

 

"Effective December 1, 2011, North Carolina automatically recognizes concealed carry permits issued in any other state. Out-of-state permit holders should familiarize themselves with North Carolina’s laws."

 

Thanks

Nassau and NC may not be in issue but you are going to have to deal with port authority police at jfk which is in the city

Any NY Airport as a resident of NY you may travel with a firearm that is unloaded in a locked gun case with ammunition in a separate locked case. You must declare that you have a firearm with the airlines first and they will notify Port Authority Police to check your pistol license and firearm.

According to the Concealed Carry interactive map North Carolina honors the New York State license.

As a NYC resident I should be able to fly out of JFK or LGA also right now that the SCOTUS case is settled?

Did NYC agree to allow a premises pistol license holder to travel outside of NY state?

I’m not sure you should fly out of NYC airports. Try Mac Arthur?

If you Do Not Have A Valid NY or NYC Pistol License or not covered under LEOSA. You will be Arrested. An out of state Pistol License will not cover you legally.

My License is a Nassau County Target/Hunting. 

 

It does say on the back not valid in NYC, however I'm wondering if the Port Authority police will give me issues if I did decide to travel with it to a state that is open carry or has reciprocity with NY.

You may at any Airport in New York with a valid NY pistol license. You must follow TSA protocol, declare the firearm at the ticket counter and await Airport Authorities to check the firearm and pistol license.

I have no idea. They did say we can take our pistols out of the city, to ranges and residences outside of the city but didn't offer any further clarification than that.

Have you done this? JFK is in queens and our licenses state nyc is a no go. I know we can pass through with a locked container but nothing states we can stop in an airport...just curious.

No, I would call the N Carolina Sheriff's office in the area you are visiting. NCPD knows nothing about N Carolina law, and has no jurisdiction there. There are threads on here that deal with the mechanics of travel. Unloaded, locked container (NON TSA lock), allow extra time.

I've done it.   Rifle & Pistol.     No problem at all.   Just be respectful, and don't do anything stupid with your mouth. .    You need an extra hour, even through it's maybe 15 minutes...
