    There's lots of things someone is legally entitled to do in his state but aren't entitled in another.   Nobody thinks that our laws against prostitution interferes with a Nevadan's right to travel, for an easy example.  

    And as to whether there's reason other than malicious contempt, you're really saying that New Yorkers have more restrictive laws on themselves, and expect Vermonters to follow them while in New York, out of contempt for Vermonters?  That's even less believable than the right to travel argument.  It seems that the only contempt that's being shown is the contempt for New Yorkers to order their own lives without having to accomodate a special set of laws for people who are passing through.  As if Vermonters have this bubble of immunities that they can take and rub in New Yorkers' noses.  

    That's not even "gun control". It's more like "massacre control".
