PISTOL PERMIT RE-CERTIFICATION

PISTOL PERMIT RE-CERTIFICATION

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...

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...

Session will see a push for new gun safety law

Session will see a push for new gun safety law – New Yorkers Against Gun Violence, one of the state’s most prominent pro-gun control groups, is planning to advocate for new legislation to be introduced by Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, D-Scarsdale, aimed at keeping guns out of reach from children.  In New York state there is no law requiring gun owners to safely secure their guns and keep them out of the reach of children. Although the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Act, or SAFE Act, passed last year includes a provision requiring gun owners to safely store their guns away from any household member who has been convicted of a felony or domestic violence crime, has been involuntarily committed or is currently under an order of protection, the law does not require guns to be safely stored away from children in the...
