I've looked for the New York State laws pertaining to firearms on school property and hoped someone here can help. I read the federal law that says that you can not carry on school property unless your gun is registered. Well, pistol licenses require registration of your gun in this state. But I could not find where the oposite is true in New York law. Can someone help and point to NYS law. Thanks.
