NYSRPA-PVF                     90 S. Swan Street Albany, New York, 12210   May, 12, 2017 Babylon Republican Committee Anthony Pancella, III, Chairman 101 N. Wellwood Ave., Suite 6 Lindenhurst, NY 11757 (631) 226-4500 babylonrepublicans.com   Dear Sir,   The New York State Rifle & Pistol Association – PVF is an affiliate of the nation’s oldest and the state’s largest pro-gun civil rights organization, as such the Sheriff’s race in your county is of great interested to us. We believe in the right man for the right position and therefore in this race place great value on law enforcement experience and in this particular instance we also value the candidates support and belief in law and order and support of the Second Amendment.   One of the candidates while professing his belief in the Second Amendment actually voted for the SAFE Act after promising constituents and supporters he would oppose that heinous legislation. For those reasons and his lack of law enforcement experience we find him unsuitable for this position.   Conversely, Fred Sales, has a nearly a four decade long law enforcement career, Thirty-two years as a Suffolk County police officer and six years as a New York City corrections officer. Equally as important he spent fifteen years as the Suffolk’s PBA liaison to the state legislators in Albany.   Mr. Sales vast experience and strong Second Amendment beliefs make him our candidate of choice for Suffolk County Sheriff.     Sincerely,   Thomas H.... read more

PISTOL PERMIT RE-CERTIFICATION https://firearms.troopers.ny.gov/pprecert/welcome.faces Ladies and Gentlemen, I know there is a lot of talk and consternation regarding the re-certification process and the page that has recently been made active by the NYSP. Let me perfectly clear; while we object to any regulation that places any additional burden on the practice of our Second Amendment Rights we cannot advise you not to re-certify. If we preformed that illegal act it would have dire consequences for the Association. I would suggest to those re-certifying to visit their County Clerk’s Office to make sure your permit matches what is on file in the office. Remember you have one year to perform this re-certification, make good use of that time, make sure everything is correct. I would also suggest that December 29, 2017 would be a good time to re-certify for two reasons (1.) It will give us time to work on a legislative fix (2.) It would be a good test of the system’s capabilities. If you have any questions please contact us. Tom King Cogito ergo armatus... read more
RE: The issuance of an additional hand gun permit

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... read more
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.
