Oh, they're military rifles. You being from up there and all know they usually work just fine covered with ice. I bet the locals will have much sympathy for the flatlandahs that quit because of a couple days of freezing rain!:)

I hope any "southerners" that are planning to attend are extremely well prepared and well versed for the anti-gun States of NJ & NY as you try to pass through. Preferable to take the preferred detour though PA.

NJ State Police are known to look for NRA stickers on vehicles passing over the Delaware Memorial Bridge into Woodstown, NJ. It seems those vehicles always have a brake light or license plate bulb not working, or "something" suspicious that requires the NJSP to pull over & advise the motorist. Once your pulled over, probable cause is a piece of cake to drum up and then check the vehicle.

None of you guys need to be pulled over like this with a half dozen or more firearms in the vehicle. Doesn't matter if they're fully legal, you'll be in a world of hurt, firearms confiscated and will need to lawyer up to get them back. You'll easily miss the match. This is not propaganda. I can only imagine what would happen if you're near the socialist part of NY (NY City).

That's a great point. I would hate for anyone to not come to the New England Games for fear of being arrested for exercising a protected constitutional right. "Goo Gone" is great for removing potentially offensive pro-gun stickers.

There's the Firearms Owners Protection Act that states it is legal to travel through states with restrictive firearms laws as long as the firearm is legal to possess in both the the point of origin and the destination. This is of little consolation when you are "detained" in a state that thumbs it's nose at federal law. For example, Senator Charles Schumer of New York has stated, and I quote "Bring a gun to New York and we will arrest you."

Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont are freedom loving pro gun states, and they are pretty cool people, even if they are Yankees. Unfortunately, they are isolated from other free areas of the country by states where most residents believe that only the military, police, and the bodyguards of the elite should carry around firearms.

I hope to see y'all there. I'm going to try to attend myself from Maine.

Is there a New York state resident on the forum who can give us the good information on transiting New York with our match rifles, ammo and magazines?

Thanks

Yes, put people at ease so they'll attend. You guys may have won the war, but the South can't let you win everything. It's time for an "invasion" of the North!!!:)


Kind of exciting when you think about it.
