8. The dude at the counter is expected to know the gun laws of all 50 states?

It would be easier if the gun owner were responsible for knowing the gun laws in just two states-- the one he is in, and the one he is traveling to.

The guy behind his desk already needs to know the policy for his state, the TSA, and the airline. He calls ahead to the destination and calls local authorities so they can make sure the gun owner is in compliance with their law.

However, I would propose that if the gun owner is in compliance with his departure city, notifies the proper people, and is allowed to board the plane, then he has not broken any law. When his luggage arrives in New York, it should be both legal and required for the police to take custody of the fire arm, NOT the person. So long as the gun owner isn't allowed to receive their own luggage with the gun in it, they should not have been illegally carrying the weapon.

The cops should just hold it in a vault until he's ready to go home.
