What NYC Laws say about blanked-firearms

 
Administrative Code of the City Of New York

This is the section of City law that regulates the movement of "weapons" (as defined by the city) into and through the boundaries of the City. Why is this relevant? Because the movement of firearms by a NYS-Licensed Firearms Manufacturer are included, but only if the delivery and/or pick-up point is that of a New York City licensed gun dealer.

The only entities who may be in possession of "BLANKED" firearms, within the city of New York, and New York State are licensed Manufacturers who are also licensed Dealers in Firearms, by the city or state. Because the transport and subsequent possession as well as "LOCATION" to such transport and possession, is NOT to or from a New York City Licensed Dealer in Firearms, New York City's restrictions do not apply.

New York State's Penal Law on the other hand, specifically names what entities can be in New York State with weapons.

July 2nd, 2008
According to NYPD-License Division Director, Thomas Prasso:

"Any "weapons dealer" who attempts to transact, transport, or possess a NYC defined "weapon" (firearm {handgun & assault weapon}, rifle, shotgun or machine gun, must first receiving a "log number" from the NYPD's Licensing Division."

The actual section of the New York City Administrative Code to which Director Thomas Prasso is referring to is detailed below.

A shipment which is within the City of New York and involves any off-loading of the weapons from one means of transportation, followed by subsequent on-loading of the weapons to another means of transportation, shall not be considered a transitory shipment.
  5.  Unanticipated Delay. For purposes of this chapter, the term "unanticipated delay" is an event involving the operator of a vehicle who intended to make a transitory shipment of weapons when s/he entered the City of New York with a shipment of weapons, and having done so, has experienced an unexpected mechanical problem, or other unexpected condition or set of circumstances which causes the operator to remain within the City, and off of a limited access highway, for a period of greater than one hour.
  6.   Weapon. For purposes of this chapter, the term "weapon" shall mean a "firearm," "rifle," "shotgun," or "machine-gun," as those terms are defined in §265.00 of the New York State Penal Law and shall also include anything that is defined as an "assault weapon" in §10-301 of the New York City Administrative Code.

§16-02  Applicability.

  This chapter shall apply to all persons who transport or deliver one or more weapons into or within any location in the City of New York, except that it shall not apply to:

 (b) the shipment or delivery of five (5) or fewer weapons from one licensed weapons dealer located in New York City directly to another licensed weapons dealer located in New York City.

Such request shall include the following information:

(1) The name and address of the source of the shipment of weapons. If the source is a corporation, the name of the president or authorized representative of such corporation shall be included.
(2) The number of weapons, including the manufacturer's name, caliber, and model identification, for each type of weapon being transported.

(d) Upon receiving a request for authorization to transport or deliver weapons, the Police Commissioner shall cause to be conducted a review of Police Department records to ascertain whether the intended recipient of the weapons shipment or delivery is an authorized person, and whether there exists any information which would otherwise provide a basis for denying authorization to receive such weapons shipment. The Police Commissioner or her/his designee shall then notify the requesting person that such authorization has or has not been granted.

(1)  The Police Commissioner may require, as a condition of the authorization to transport or deliver weapons, that shipments of weapons which will be off-loaded from one means of transportation and subsequently on-loaded to the same means or another means of transportation within the city of New York, be escorted by a uniformed member of the New York City Police Department, from the time of on-loading until such point that the shipment has left the jurisdictional boundaries of the City of New York.
