Right, point being if you buy a gun anywhere, there's a record of that transaction and an background check with that serial number. So if you're caught with it, and anyone has the inclination to investigate, one would think that paperwork could turn up.Wrong necs check only list serial # long gun
Hence the question: can you buy out of state without a permit? There is no federal law against buying long guns out of state and transporting them back (no FFL to FFL transfer). But can NY still prosecute for bypassing the permit requirement? Just wondering how NY could enforce this on other states.
