My best guess would be that if someone other than you was found in possession of your registered AW, that the State would deem that to have been "transferred", which can now only be done legally through an FFL for ANY firearm. They will use any term or loophole to make another arrest for the SAFE Act to pad their numbers to show how well it's working. Look at all these dangerous criminals with these evil weapons that we've arrested. New Yorkistan is now so much SAFEer since 1/15/13. Now if your "AW" wasn't registered..........................Can a person other than myself be in possession of my registered AW? After all, it is registered right?
That is one of the many problems with this law, it is not how "you" define possession/transfer it is how the enforcers and prosecutors define it. If I loan my .22 to my neighbor to pop a woodchuck I certainly would not call that a "transfer" but I'll bet Cuomo and his minions would.It really depends on how you define "possess" and also "transfer".
Yes absolutely. If the law is struck, it is as if it never existed. It cannot be enforced, even retroactively, and all prosecutions based on portions of the law that are struck will be vacated.Lets say I don't register and move my Black rifles out of state then the Safe Act get repealed in the courts two years down the road can I bring them back into the state?
I got an answer to this in a roundabout way when calling the NYSP "hotline" (their advice is worth whatever you think it is worth). I was asking about registration of a jointly owned gun and how I could pass the gun on to my kids.Can a person other than myself be in possession of my registered AW? After all, it is registered right?
