    You've gotta give us more than that.
    It sounds like you basically said, "I went to the bank to get money but was told it was illegal, so went home without any money"

    You've gotta give us ALOT more input, for starters (and don't just answer these questions, add other information to it) how old are you, what'd you buy, how'd you pay, which seller did you get it from, is the seller reputable, did amazon cancel the order or did the store, is your credit card in good standings, what's the seller's feedback report, have you had any other problems in the past, what exactly did the cancellation say, which law was broken, etc?
    With the lack of information you've given nothing can be done to help, assist, or even begin to guide you to the right path correctly. All you're going to get are replies that say something on the lines of "Why are you buying from Amazon, but from an actual airsoft online retailer"

    If you live in NYC, it is a problem. When I lived there, I got one of my first airsoft guns there. When I went to the airport and flew home, I was arrested and held for two hours because I had an airsoft gun in my suit case and had residence at Manhattan. That was quite a problem and the only thing that saved me from trouble was my father's diplomatic immunity.

    Are you arrested often, Shifty? JUST KIDDING!!!

    OP, your best bet would be to move ;). As shifty said, New York is a big pain in stuff like this…….New York and Illinois.

    As theonlybuster said, I think we’re going to need a lot more info. Out of curiosity, what gun were you attempting to purchase?

    Edit: Never mind. Didn’t see that sentence.

    You are correct about Illinois. The local cops aren't all that bad the don't really care and kind of promote it with safety, on the other side of things in 2008 (yes same year Shifty had his trouble) the farming operation I own with my dad, sold some land to one of our friends, to build a grain terminal and when they got it, built I received permission to continue using the woods we played in since the woods are still my property. The only trouble I've had is BNSF guys coming to games and trying to kick us off my property, but the cop that showed up knew me, he said it was my property and carry on :D I know this was a little unrelated. But I hope the OP gets his gun, I know I tried ordering a paintball gun to have around for fun a couple years ago and bass pro would not ship it to me.

    Eh no. Op I'm not sure whether you live in the city or outside it. If you do then you're limited. First off I wouldn't order an airsoft gun off amazon. Here are some sites that ship guns to nyc.
    Evike
    Airsoft GI
    Airsoft Atlanta
    and others.

    Airsoft megastore will ship gear bb's and mags but not guns.

    Also airsoft laws in nyc are changing. Guns are perfectly legal as long as they are mostly clear or bright colored.

    You can do that or just order it from Evike, Airsoft GI, or Airsoft Atlanta and it will come right to your door...

    Im in western NY and have no problems but if you live in the city (witch you do) most sites wont ship a gun to you. Call the site before ordering to see if they will or wont.

    Most sites always say it under their shipping policy. But It seems to be that theres more sites that do ship then don't. For example, out of Airsoft Atlanta, Evike, Airsoft GI, and Airsoft Megastore, only 1 didn't ship to ny.
