  Section 1. Subdivision 6 of  section  400.00  of  the  penal  law,  as
amended  by  chapter  318  of  the  laws  of 2002, is amended to read as

  6. License: validity. Any license  issued  pursuant  to  this  section
shall  be valid notwithstanding the provisions of any local law or ordi-
nance.  No license shall be transferable to any other  person  or  prem-
ises.  A license to carry or possess a pistol or revolver, not otherwise

police commissioner of that city. Such license to carry or possess shall
be valid within the city of New York in the absence of a  permit  issued
by  the police commissioner of that city, provided that (a) the firearms
covered by such license have been purchased from a licensed dealer with-
in the city of New York and are  being  transported  out  of  said  city
forthwith  and  immediately from said dealer by the licensee in a locked
container during a continuous and uninterrupted trip; or  provided  that
(b)  the  firearms  covered by such license are being transported by the
licensee in a locked container and the trip through the city of New York
is continuous and uninterrupted;  or  provided  that  (c)  the  firearms
covered  by  such  license  are  carried  by armored car security guards
transporting money or other valuables, in, to, or  from  motor  vehicles
commonly  known  as armored cars, during the course of their employment;
or provided that (d) the licensee is a retired police officer as  police
