    NYS Pistol License Suspension

    So my wife gets a certified letter in the mail requesting that she report to the Pistol Licensing Division to discuss an issue related her pistol license. When she gets there she is told that her license is suspended because my sixteen year old grandson, that lives in an apartment with my daughter in our house, has some gang affiliation (he had been arrest two years ago for stealing cell phones and spend a year in a juvenile facility and released about 10 months ago). She is told that she has to immediately turn in her license and pistol

    While she is there my name is brought up and she is told by the police officer interviewing her that I should expect a letter in the mail notifying me of my license suspension.

    At this point I don't think there is anything we can do to halt the suspension but if any of the legal minds out there, familar with law in the peoples republic of NY have some advice, I'm all ears. I've contacted the NRA and I'm waiting to hear back from them.

    Did I read that correctly, the State confiscated your property?

    You heard it correctly. My guess is that either we turn them over "volunteerily" or they will be confiscated.

    Yea, maybe your due process was violated? I'd contact the NRA on this, you and your wife are essentially being your license because of something someone else did.
    If you were in a shall-issue state, you'd have no problems winning this. But these stupid may-issues give the authorities the right to pull licenses for ANY reason. So I'd get the NRA involved if I were you.

    Welcome to "Guilt by Association" the Nanny state's best friend.

    You have my sympathy , but you need to realize that your state
    keeps all of your "rights" on a leash , and is ready to yank them back at any time.

    I know this because I -WAS- a refugee from NY.

    If you don't comply the state will more than likely charge you with
    something to apply pressure.

    It's like saying that if teenage son gets a DWI we're going to suspend the driver's licenses of the parents and confiscate their cars.

    I'm still kind of in shock and trying to processing all of this. Neither of us has ever been arrest or had any trouble with the law, never ... and now this.

    I'd say this is one of the few times to go knocking on the NRA door and ask for help. If they're not willing to jump in at the very least you can ask them for a lawyer in that arena that they would be willing to recommend or point you in the right direction.

    Sounds like you were just violated to me...then again, I don't live in NY where they blame everyone and everything but the real problem.

    Long story short...don't go down without a fight.

    Her pistol is still her property.
    She should at least be given the chance to sell it legally or be monetarily compensated for it.

    My wife is trying to calm me down because I've got some serious heart issues but I'm totally ticked off. Feeling violated? You bet I do.

    If you dont mind me asking what county are you in? Regardless of the "may-issue" status of this state I would definitely fight it. If the NRA doesnt come to your aid, im sure they will have the names of a few attorneys who could help.

    It appears to be a clear violation of your rights. Especially the confiscation of your guns. I'd fight it in court, contact not only the NRA, but also GOA.

    I plan on putting up a fight but I don't think there is much we can do in the short term to prevent the confiscation of our firearms. The licenses are issued at the sole discretion of the licensing agent and they can deny, suspend or revoke a license for any reason leaving it up to you to take them to court to fight the suspension which as we all know can drag out for months or years and be costly. We're typical middle-class Americans just trying to pay the mortgage (no bailout money coming my way) so I'm not sure how far we could take a legal battle.

    I will take your advise to contact the GOA.

    Where in NYS are you? If you are downstate in the NYC area I suggest you checkout the website of John S. Chambers (google him). He comes highly recommended. Personally, I think you are getting BUSHWACKED. If the NRA doesn't come to your aid, you need to Lawyer Up. Good Luck and keep us updated.

    Store your firearms out of state until you can load up a U-Haul and get out of there!! If you stay and put up with this nonsense or spend a bunch of bucks to fight it, you will never feel like anything but a second-class citizen.

    Sure, changing jobs, and moving away from friends and maybe family is tough, but it can be done. You may make a lot less money but there is more to life than a stack of frog pelts. Your ancestors knew this, or you would have been born on a different continent
