Legal status of blowguns in the state of new york
Question Details: I would like to know:
Is it legal to carry an unloaded blowgun in a public place
Is it legal to use a blowgun against targets on owner's private property
Are there special exceptions to the state law in NYC proper
Blowguns are not illegal in New York State BUT ARE ILLEGAL IN NEW YORK CITY. It is probably not illegal to carry one in public or to use it on private property outside NYC. I would, however, check with a hunting and fishing store in your area. They will not the limits of what they sell. They do not want to do anything illegal.
