RE: The issuance of an additional hand gun permit

  Members, Below is a copy of a letter we sent to the NYPD. If you fall in this situation regarding the issuance of an addittional hand gun please feel free to copy this letter or modify it to fit your situation. Tom King   Commanding Officer License Division One Police Plaza Room 152 New York, NY 10038   Regarding: NYC Pistol Permit Number ————-   Dear Sir: I have been recently notified by the NYPD Licensing Division that my application for adding an additional firearm to my NYC permit has been declined. It has also been brought to my attention that numerous individuals received a “Handgun Purchase/Addition Disapproval Notice” from the License Division. They all have a computerized checkmark next to number one “Insufficient need for an additional handgun.” Please provide the authority upon which “need” must be shown, and what constitutes “need” sufficient to add a handgun to an existing license. NYC Laws and Regulations provide that requests for additional handguns shall be reviewed on an individual basis.  Please describe the individual review conducted for the requests received. Lastly, the Disapproval notice provides a ten-day time period to request reconsideration.  Please provide the basis for that time period and the procedures of the reconsideration process. Thank you for your consideration, Your...
MidwayUSA Update

MidwayUSA Update

Members, It has come to our attention that a number of MidwayUSA customers were notified that Midway could no longer ship primers or powders to Upstate New York. We have resolved that situation through working with the good people at Midway, shipments of primers and powder will resume. At no time were the Midway people attempting to curtail any 2nd Amendment Rights they were merely responding to an erroneous computer code that they corrected immediately when we discussed the issue with them. What many of you might not know is that MidwayUSA is a huge financial supporter of all the NRA programs and sponsors the NRA Annual meeting. Please support MidwayUSA as much as the support us.

New York: Further Infringements Avoided as Session Comes to an End

New York: Further Infringements Avoided as Session Comes to an End

Legislators concluded the 2016 Legislative Session last weekend as Friday, June 17, turned into Saturday morning in Albany.  Lawmakers typically force a long list of bills through the process in a short amount of time in the waning hours of session, and this is the time of year to be hyper-vigilant.  Like the SAFE Act, much of this legislation goes through in the middle of the night with little or no public input or attention. As the frenzied end of session came to a close, your NRA-ILA is happy to report that gun owners were spared this session from additional damage.  Despite the fact that anti-gun politicians secured one of the toughest gun control laws in the country with the passage of the SAFE Act in 2013, they will never be completely satisfied until guns are completely banned in the Empire State.  The dozens of anti-gun bills introduced this year are proof of that.  Groups like New Yorkers Against Gun Violence unbelievably claim there aren’t enough gun control laws, and they continue to push for more restrictions on your Second Amendment rights. The 2016 session had no shortage of gun control bills.  Three bills headlined the push from anti-gun groups in Albany, and NRA vigorously fought these bills, in addition to others.  S.2050A, sponsored by state Senator Daniel Squadron, would have banned .50 Caliber rifles, even though this firearm is virtually never used in the commission of a crime.  Bill sponsors certainly can’t point to an example in New York.  Fortunately, the bill did not move and failed to clear the Senate Codes Committee.  Legislation requiring mandatory storage of firearms was...
