    Here's the deal:
    I'm a resident of Colorado, going to school in upstate New York. I spend about 9 months out of the year there, so I'd like to keep shooting. I've done some research on the laws regarding possession of firearms in NY, and it seems (according to http://www.nraila.org) that I cannot legally take a rifle with me when I go back next semester. Handguns are completely out. The only way I can have a rifle is if I get a hunting license.

    Now, my question is this. Is there any way for me to legally keep a rifle/shotgun at school, according to state laws? Can I get a hunting license without intending to use it, or would that be frowned upon?

    Interestingly, my college is (relatively) accepting about firearms--I'd have to register it and store it with the campus police, but I would have access at any time.

    Thanks,
    LM

    Looks like all you need is a note....

    State Laws and Published Ordnances - Firearms - New York

    However, you should contact New York's Attorney General for the correct answer. Don't trust your freedom to us internet non-lawyer legal consultants. :) That includes the NRA and packing.org legal opinions.
