Hi, I don't have a car, my job is only a few miles away so I've always used a bike to save money on gas, insurance, inspection, etc. How do I transport a shotgun on bike (I live in Suffolk County, Long Island, New York).

Well, in a recent appeals court case, the DA from Westchester Co argued that you could always openly carry a shotgun if you could not obtain a PL 400.00(2) pistol license.

As for LI? I would make sure you have complied with all of Suffolk Co's screwy firearm laws, and be very careful. I would carry it with a sling across my back. If you can legally possess the weapon, it should not be a legal problem if it is openly carried.
