Permit deadline looms for tens of thousands of NY gun owners

December 14, 2017

remoteALBANY — A little known section of Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s New York SAFE Act is causing big headaches for some upstate county officials who oversee pistol permits.

‘It’s like we’re living a nightmare,” said Niagara County Clerk Joseph Jastrzemski.

Jastrzemski and other county officials said they are scrambling to remind gun owners who acquired pistol permits before January 2013 that they are facing a Jan. 31, 2018, deadline, imposed by the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act of 2013, to get those documents recertified.

Failure to do so, officials say, will result in those gun owners having their permits revoked.

    The counties had five years to get this job done and they dropped the ball. Had the law been passed in January of this year they might have a leg to stand on but since the law was passed in 2013 they had more then enough time. The law makes perfect sense, up dating your information is a good idea, you have to renew every other license.

      Read the 2nd amendment ass hole. You know nothing of “perfect sense”. All you ever do is state your “opinion” and have never backed that up with any facts. You’re a looser Democrat and a complete ass hole.

      DACA recipients had more than 5 years to get their status legalized, yet they “dropped the ball” and still liberals demand extension after extension. And they are NOT American citizens with rights guaranteed under the Constitution. (Remember that the “D” in DACA stands for “Delayed” and not “Done away with”)

      “…up dating your information is a good idea,…” Same could be said for our immigration laws. How about requiring all non-Citizen aliens to update their addresses and personal info with the government so that we know where they are? After all, a guest in a hotel must check in with the desk occasionally, and they are guests in this country. Using the intent of this law, to verify the folks who own guns should still be allowed to, would not this be a good idea with our alien “guests? To insure they have not overstayed their welcome, to ensure Also, does not having to provide personal information, including presenting ID, to exercise a Constitutional Right against your “code”? You are all up in arms when a state requires an ID to cast a vote, why should they require an ID to own a gun?
