    wow!! you dont want to carry a gun in NYC

    i live in arizona where getting a CCW is as simple as an 8 hour class. if you conceal a handgun without the CCW its a simple misdomener. im in new york city right now (03/03/07) this is my first trip here and i love it other than it does not seem very gun friendly. i just got off the 6 uptown and in the train there was a sign that said something like "if you carry a gun without a permit you will get the max of 3 and a half years. this blows my mind. and just yesterday i was on the subway and this guy started yelling an screaming at a lady then from what i could see he hit here with an open hand... a few people looked at the situation and then turned thier heads. wow! with things like this i would want to be armed and am sad that i can't carry here. i realy like it here but the gun laws are crazy. does anyone know the steps and time frame it takes to get a permit in NYC? thanks

    I also have no wish to visit there.

    does anyone know the steps and time frame it takes to get a permit in NYC?
    I think it'd be more a case of who you are and so how much
    ''clout'' and power you have - knowing the right people too.

    For Joe Schmoe - probably a case of ''sorry dude - sit and watch while hell freezes over''!!

    I don't live there....but.....the whole "they voted for it, they derseve it" rap gets old. For, example, there's a good chance the AWB could pass the house, then whose to blame when we all the face the ban? It's easy to pick on blue states and feel superior, but when you look at things at the national level, no one's really safe.

    Some people have NYC permits

    It has been commonly reported that Robert DeNiro, Joan Rivers and Don Imus have New York City CCW permits.

    > steps and time frame it takes to get a permit <

    4hr class, $100, paper app., $10, fingerprinting, $85 last I looked, may vary slightly in different counties (I'm in the worst-Westchester), 4 resident references, police interview. 10 month wait if all your "t's" are crossed.

    The biggest stupidity is--you can't buy or handle a pistol unless you have a permit, and the permit asks for the serial # of the gun(s) you want to own (???). Most dealers balk at that one real bad. They don't want to have some pistol hanging around their inventory if you get denied. I was looking hard at the Para Nighthawg but couldn't find one anywhere, and ended up with my pal in Houston buying one and letting me get to know it when I visited in December. ******* a way to go to test a pistol!

    As for an NYC-specific permit, you better know a lot of "influential" people if possible, and then keep your fingers crossed.

    Yes, you need a permit in NYC to own a firearm; but it goes further than that; unless you are a LEO, you must possess a permit to even be able to handle a gun in NYC to include gunstores (the few that exist). I believe that is also the case in NYS.

    That goes for the entire STATE of Illinois...
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    Many jurisdictions are the same way....want a gun in Puerto Rico?...you better have at least a target shooting or possession to own a firearm permits.
