    Like it or not, "Move" is one valid relief to your discomfort.

    Instead of complaining about it, why don't you work to get the laws changed so that NY becomes "Shall issue" and NYC no longer has Sullivan protection.

    Just a thought.

    People don't always say what we like-this is an Iternet forum, so you can expect about anything. So, I politely say, live with it cuz it ain't gonna change!

    Now if the remainder of NY CCW holders will do the same, then perhaps the gradual changes will improve everyones opportunity to carry.
    New York actually has a high per capita rate of ccw permits. One publication from Ohio, lauding their state's progress in the area, stated that they were now #2 in per-capita ccw permits, with New York #1.

    That was awhile ago, and I doubt it's true, but it's a myth that as a state New York does not have much carrying. New York City IS different of course. But people tend to view the State as the same as the City in regards to gun-issues.

    i had one of those restricted permits for about 15 yrs there, one day I got a letter in the mail asking to make an appointment with the judge reguarding my permit ???? didn't know what it was for, so I called his sec. who lucky I knew, she told me it was to upgrade my permit to full carry, unrestricted, I said whats the soonest I could be there, she said come in today, so for my last 20 yrs there I was unrestricted, so its up to the judge guys..
    yes ny is a beautiful state once your north of orange co. or sullivan co's, which I was.
    according to ny laws I left there yrs ago as an honest citizen, now even with may permits I can not return with one of my carry weapons, WHY NY..
    give me a good reason. 34 other states honor my permits, can't ny honor an ex holder of a full carry permit, after all were honest and responsible people.I go to many state's that i've never been in before and they don't even know who I am ?????? and they accept me and my weapon.

    Tony, I concur completely. Of course, I live in California, so we get it all the time too!

    It's a nice thought. But working to standardize CC laws across the state might end up having the unfortunate result of the whole state being like NYC.

    I prefer working for change at the local level. If NYC residents want change they're welcome to work at their local level also.

    If so, it's a myth I'm happy to perpetrate. I'd guess that New York has the lowest level of restrictions on where we can carry of all the states. (This is strictly anecdotal evidence from this forum after hearing complaints about people not being able to carry in church, in a bar, where there's a posted sign, etc.)

    Did you miss the part where he talked about spreading the word about the pro-gun judge? And even if he hadn't, how would you know whether or not he had worked to get the laws changed?

    "Move" is not a valid option for many people. Not everyone has unlimited money, and some are tied to an area by family or other commitments. Some find CCW important, but not the only consideration regarding where they choose to live. I've been in Chicago and New York City for brief stays, and both are great cities that happen to have idiots running them.

    Just a couple of thoughts.

    Duly noted, cl00bie. Here in NC, our carry laws are nothing to brag about, but we are trying to improve them. There are lots of other great reasons why I live here, and I'm sure it's the same for you.

    Well, if you all are picking on New York, then you are leaving West Virginia alone!

    Just kidding.

    While I have not said anything about New York, my wife hails from the Land of Lincoln. I have said a few disparaging remarks about them and their laws. I will do better in the future not to bash any other state.

    I too live in Broome County NY. It took 4 weeks to get my original pistol permit, and then it took 7 weeks after i completed the Rochester Arms Carry Class for my full carry permit. Not bad at all man, not bad at all. Bunker
