I lived in New York once. When I got there after a week I called in to register my pistol. The Detective got annoyed because it took me a whole week to register it! He actually sent a squad car over to pick it up as apparently you must surrender your weapon for 6 months when you move into the New York. I moved out of the state after nine months and it took nine months to get it back even though my brother was a cop (not in NY though) at the time. I'll never live in New York again.
