I just sold my Norinco AK and the guy who purchased it lives in staten island NYC. He is current active LEO and sent me a copy of his NYPD ID card. I am 99% sure I can just box up the AK and ship direct to him but I just want to be sure.

I've seen many threads regarding shipping from NY residence to NY residence. That is legal. What makes this interesting is he is shipping from NY to LI through NYC.

owning maybe, shipping is a big if.

city statute says it can be owned in performance of duties.... I may be reading it wrong though

from nypd rant:
An active Police Officer who's a resident of NYC can own/possess an "Assault" Weapon.
Upon seperation from Police employment the weapon must be disposed of (sold or transferred to another active PO/sold or transferred to an FFL/surrendered to the NYPD) or simply removed from the confines of NYC. If it's a post-2004 weapon in pre-ban configuration, it must be disposed of or removed from NYS in the same manner as a NYC weapon.

Rick,

I would ask him for a letter from his dept head as to what they authorize their members to have if said officer should retire or here is a number to the NYSP you can ask what their opinion is on it. 518-464-7120 to CYA. Personally I will not deal in AR's or AK's to the 5 boroughs just because of the liability of the potential mishap or what if's. It is your call though.

I too would be very wary of that. I would think in NYCafornia that not even police are exempt unless they are using duty rifles and they don't take them home...

So in NYC, the people sworn to uphold the law are themselves above the law. What's that saying about only the police owning guns in a police state?
*psh* Yeah, next thing you know the mayor will fly is helicopter around and ignore noise ordinances, or something like that.

from nypd rant:
I would not take legal advice from the rant. I do not believe there is an off-duty police officer exemption in local law 78. I may be wrong, but you can always call the License Division and ask them. That's probably the safest way to go.

legal advice no, but its the closest way to get a collective answer from MOS on this subject. I think the only issue here is shipping. if he does FTF then its on the new owner if they bring it to the city of bloomberg. Maybe worth the ffl fee to just make it kosher.

shipping it could be fine. there is always the chance the box gets ripped open and someone has a heart attack. SEND IT UPS! USPS IS THE WORST!
