    The Syracuse paper has been running prominent web ads in the right hand columns for the last 15 days at least, for a "huge' Sportsman's Show in Harrisburg, PA in February.  One can reach Harrisburg in 2-5 hours from upstate NY.  

    Conveniently Rt 15 south into the Harrisburg area has mostly been reconstructed and is now a beautiful road, making travel easier and faster.

    Until there are restrictions on transportation over state lines, things will continue.  Bet you can go into a gun shop in NY and see flyers which say, "Here's a coupon for $2. off admission.  See me at booth #2_5, for special deals for NYS residents."  

    Dealers are supposed to get rid of the 8 or more ammo clips in their inventory by selling them 'out of state'.  !!!!

    ^^^^^^
    Whatever, we are very pleased about this - hopefully it helps to prevent some tragedies and those who own guns take better care and responsibility in their handling and storage.  Of course none of our reps in this area voted for this - don't even have to look it up!!

      state laws only go so far in a situation like this as they are fairly easily circumvented. NYS's new law is only a start.
