    Default Ability to own replica guns in NYC?

    I was curious about whether or not it's legal to own a non-firing replica rifle in new york city (specifically in regards to ww1 and ww2). I've read some people say that all replicas are illegal and others say that only replicas of post 1889 weapons are illegal, and I'd like to get it cleared up. Also, this is my first post on this forum and I don't really know where to put this, so apologies if this is in the wrong section.

    Local groups are usually the best: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    As always and as post two indicates: Consult a local attorney that understands the particular section of laws you have questions about.

    Replicas and deactivated guns are like hammers and you can do as much damage with one. Problem is if you have one it doesn't come with a 4X8 neon sign that says it is. So where they become dangerous to you, is when the authorities sees it/them. In NY city where guns are even less allowed than in Canada my advice is... you better ask the ones who might shoot you if for some reason they have to break in to your home and see guns hanging on the walls, my guess is they will not ask you if they're replicas or deactivated, they will be ready to face an armed man.
    So yeah you "MIGHT" (I don't know NY laws but this comes from good'ol horse sense) need some kind of license so the police knows when they punch in your name or addy that you ONLY have replicas or deactivated guns.

    Save your money, move to a free state, buy a real gun, and never, ever vote for another Democrat ever again.

    Meh! some of them are pretty life like, (I agree those aren't inflatable) they don't grow old, they don't mind if you roll over as soon as you're done and best of all they don't talk

    That's what I was saying, police don't take any chances if they see anything that looks like a gun they're on high alert. You'd even be better off anywhere in Canada lolll
