    NYC disagrees.

    The definition of residency can vary state-to-state, and from application to application within a state. For example, in NY, owning property can count as residency for purposes of a pistol permit despite having a drivers license and primary residence in another state.

    Also, many people pay state income taxes to multiple states. The exact laws vary by state, but, generally speaking, if you work over X days in another state that is not your residence, you may owe that state income tax.

    I can only speak of Pa. One question to get a license to drive in pa is do you have a current license in any other state. if so it must be surrendered. If you claim residency in Pa you have X number of days to register your cars in Pa. If you are a resident of pa you pay state income tax but get credit for what you pated elsewhere.

    As for the dual residency matter, if a person lives in another state and has a DL from that state/pays taxes, etc, he is a resident of that state. However, if that person owns a home (cannot just be property, it must be a residence - house, condo, trailer, etc.) in another state and lives there at times, and pays the real estate taxes on that abode, in the BATFEs eyes they are a dual state resident. They are considered a resident of that state when they are actually living in that house.

    I work with 6 dual state residents at my shop. 5 of them are residents of FL and PA (they all have FL DL's but live in PA 4-6 months per year and in FL the rest of the time). While they are living here, there is no problem with the PSP with them getting ANY firearm. My NY/PA resident (and he lives in NYC) has purchased several handguns, 2 suppressors and a Reising .45 submachine gun as a PA resident. No problems with the PSP or BATFE (NFA Division). The firearms he buys in PA stay in PA because of the NY laws. And he does have a NY carry permit (very draconian laws to the way it is handled and issued). He told me that once he retires he will be moving to PA for good but he is a business owner and makes really good money right now in NY.

    That said, if they don't/can't get a carry permit in their home state, they probably will not be able to get a LTCF here in PA under the dual state resident consideration because that is BATFE ruling. But to be honest, I don't know anyone who has brought up the dual state resident thing with the Sheriff of the County where their PA residence is to see what they say.
