A NYS resident can have a NYS-legal AR. duh.
NYC residents cannot have the same rifle in NYC. duh again.
Can the NYC resident leave a NYS-legal AR outside the city as long as its locked up?
Can a NYC resident get prosecuted in NYC for owning an NYS-legal but NYC-illegal AR in a summer home upstate, or left with a friend on LI, etc. ?
"Any resident of the city of New York acquiring a rifle or shotgun outside the city of New York shall within seventy-two hours after bringing such weapon into the city make application for a rifle and shotgun permit, if such person does not already possess such permit, and for a certificate of registration." (so just don't bring it into the city?)
"It shall be unlawful for any person who is the lawful owner or lawful custodian of a weapon, as that term is defined in section 10-311, to store or otherwise place or leave such weapon in such a manner or under circumstances that it is out of his or her immediate possession or control, without having rendered such weapon inoperable by employing a safety locking device." (so it has to be locked no matter where it is if you are an NYC resident?)

Of course as always you need to talk to your personal attorney and not take advice from dummies over the Internet.
Opening that letter must of been like getting kicked in the balls..........twice.
