Would you like to own a rifle & pistol and be able to take them to the range?

Let's say you're a NYer and you want an inexpensive 9mm pistol and a 22 rifle...

Pistol permit: $340
Fingerprint fee: $91.50
Rifle/shotgun permit: $140
Fingerprint fee: $91.50
NYC range yearly membership fee: $300 to >$500 (you can't bring your pistol outside of NYC)
Glock 19: ~$450 (that's outside NYC, on NYC expect to pay much more)
Ruger 10/22: ~$300 (also outside NYC, and make sure your mags are swapped out for 5rd NYC legal mags)

That comes out to around $1,800 before ammo cost, and the locked cases and trigger locks you need to purchase.

Plus the rifle & pistol fees need to be repaid every 3 years.

Just move to France.

Oh really? I guess I have dodged a few run ins with the NYPD then. I have had to crew change up there a few times recently, the whole crew had clip style pocket knives. And when I went sight seeing a few years ago the security guard at the Empire State Building took it their security room, I got it back though.

You can buy firearms outside the city, (NY State only) and it's much less expensive to do so.

Some places don't like filling out the extra NYPD paperwork required, or selling to NYC residents in general.

Once you register a handgun in the city, then you can't take it out.

CSB to follow, TL/DR; pocket knife confiscated then returned at Rockefeller Plaza

With wife & her friend at Rockefeller Plaza to go to the "Top of the Rock" for the view. We got our tickets and made our way up. Security guard sees my pocket knife clipped in my jeans. It's a 3" Gerber folder. He demands to see it. Now I am catching the icicle daggers from wife staring at me... Guard comments "That's some tactical fighting knife you've got there!" as he looks it over. I give the WTF look as he decides that he is going to "hold onto it" while we went the rest of the way up. Wife gives me the "why do you always have that thing on you!?" rant. I found him when we got back down and asked politely for my knife back. He gives me this speech about how he could have confiscated the knife but decided to give it back because I was with two women and had I "been with a group of males, we would have had a problem". I give him another WTF look and we were on our way. I was furious the rest of the day...

From an old post of mine...


Well...6 months after applying...I have been approved for a NYC handgun license...valid ONLY for possession in the home, and for target shooting. Not for carry.

I primarily live in upstate NY, where I have a lifetime CCW permit, and where I keep most of my guns...but I have an apartment in Manhattan that I use for work quite often...so I figured I would get permits to possess some guns there.

What did it take to apply for a NYC handgun possession / target permit?

First, fill out the application, get passport photos taken, and get all kinds of notarized forms together. Notarized leases, notarized utility bills, notarized disposition reports from ANY run in the law you have EVER had (even speeding tickets), notarized letters stating you know NYS laws regarding use of deadly force and handgun laws, a notarized letter stating that you give up ALL privacy rights to your medical records...even notarized letters from anyone you may live with saying they are OK with you owning a handgun in the home...

Oh and a $340 fee to apply, plus $99 for fingerprinting. Non-refundable...even if you are denied. Oh and you have to renew your permit, and resubmit $340 every 3 years. Where does that money go you ask? Since they don't do any more extensive background checks for renewals? It goes RIGHT into the NYPD pension fund...NONE goes to fund the actual handgun license renewals.

What could you be denied for? ANYTHING. Too many speeding tickets? Denied. Not currently employed? Denied. Have a disability like epilepsy, a missing finger, or take any anxiety medications? DENIED. Have tax problems? Denied. Child support problems? Denied. Don't show proper respect to the NYPD gun license clerks? Denied.

Seriously. It is all typed up in their official rules.

So anyway, once you get all the applications and forms together, you have to take a half day or full day off work to submit the application, and get fingerprinted.

Then you wait. About 1-2 months for a letter, asking you to bring in MORE paperwork, and schedule a personal interview with the investigator. Now I have to get notarized pay stubs from my work, or letters of employment...W2s and tax returns from the past few years, AND 3 character reference letters, from 3 people that have known you for 5 years or more, and that live in NYC. Non family members. How many non-family people do you keep in touch with closely for over 5 years?? Not easy to find. The character reference letters must say that they approve of you owning a handgun, and that you aren't crazy.

What happens if all the people you know are anti gun? Or if you don't have any close friends? DENIED.

So after getting all these additional forms together from friends and work and your accountant...you have to go in for your interview.

So you take yet another day off from work, go to 1 Police Plaza, and get interviewed by some low IQ liberal that doesn't speak proper English...and is only 1 step from being a full blown ghetto rat. Not kidding.

Then you wait...and wait...and wait...about 5 months. Then one fine day, you get a letter saying you are approved.

But wait - there is a catch...if you don't return to 1 Police Plaza within 30 days to physically pick up your handgun license, your license approval is cancelled and you have to start over from scratch. And pay again.

So what if you are out of town or on a long work trip for 4 weeks? Denied. Start over. Sorry.

So you have to take yet ANOTHER day off work to go to the NYPD, pick up your license, and get a "purchase authorization card" allowing you to buy a handgun. And again, YOU MUST BUY A HANDGUN WITHIN 30 DAYS of picking up your license...if you don't, your license is cancelled, and you start from scratch.

So you have your little plastic card license...and you have to buy a handgun within 30 days. What if you can't currently afford a handgun at that time? Sorry. Buy one NOW or your license is revoked forever. What if you want to spend more than 30 days researching the best gun for you (since you were never able to even TOUCH a handgun in NY until you have a permit in your hands)...Sorry, buy a handgun NOW or you are denied.

So you buy a handgun, either from an FFL, a family member with a NYS handgun license, an LEO, or another NYS resident with a handgun license (but you must now get a background check for private sales, unless it is immediate family).

So you bought a gun and you take it home...FINALLY right?

NOT SO FAST...NOW, within 72 hours of purchase, you have to take YET ANOTHER day off work, return to 1 Police Plaza, and present the gun for "inspection."

Here, they make sure it is legal in NY and NYC, and that you have only mags that are 10 rounds or less. They record the serial numbers, and print out a new plastic card with the handgun listed on the back.

Now you legally own the handgun. Finally. But don't take it out of your home, unless you are going DIRECTLY to and from a shooting range or DEC hunting area. Hell, the NYPD even had to give a special "amnesty" to NYC handgun owners when Hurricane Sandy hit, and some people had to evacuate...just so these people could "temporarily" relocate their handguns to a safe place.
The long gun permit you ask? So I can possess rifles or shotguns? Pretty much the same process, except they don't make you bring the gun in for inspection. What guns can you own in NYC? Well if it is semi auto, it can't have ANY evil features. No pistol grip, bayo lug, tele stock...nothing. Oh and NO long guns can have a capacity of more than 5 rounds. No long gun mags can be over 5 rounds. Pretty much eliminating ALL long guns suitable for self defense, no??

Oh and you can only buy / register ONE gun every 90 days
Link Posted: 1/13/2015 10:17:44 PM EST
And...

It is extremely difficult, expensive, and time consuming to get a license to simply own a long gun in NYC. Even when you do, the NYC AWB says you are not allowed to own a rifle with ANY "evil" features at all...in addition, the NYPD has the authority to ban ANY gun for ANY reason they see fit. Abritrary? I think so.

PLUS, you are limited to guns with a capacity of 5 rounds MAX...which eliminates MOST guns that are suitable for self defense in the first place...And 5 rounds is not exactly optimal for protection. This runs awry of Heller and McDonald, no?
Link Posted: 1/13/2015 10:25:21 PM EST
DaveM4P99 nailed the process, absolutely no exaggeration. Except my process was a little quicker, and my interviewing officer seemed decent.

Plus you can be expected to be treated like a borderline criminal by 3 out of 5 of people in the city who find out you own a gun.

Only with 5 round mags...there are some legal garands in nyc but they've been modified to only hold 5 rounds...and the bayonet lug must be shaved off. Travesty to history. Oh and the NYPD will make you get a letter from a nyc ffl attesting to the fact that it is now nyc legal.

Why even bother owning a gun there? If someone breaks into your house you have a better chance of them leaving with only your possessions than beating a murder rap if you shoot them with your NYC legal handgun.

I'm wondering....... The "Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act", passed by the US Congress about 10 years ago, provides that an active or retired police officer can carry concealed in any city or state, regardless of the laws there. I know that NYPD doesn't adhere to the provisions of the FOPA, and will arrest your ass in a heartbeat if you try to travel through NYC with a firearm. But what about the LEOSA? If a retired cop from Vermont moves into NYC, does he still have to go through all the NYPD bullshit and get an NYC pistol permit?

Just for you cop haters out there, I don't think that the LEOSA is fair at all. I served my country for 23 years, and am just as well-versed in firearm safety, and just as good a shooter as any retired police officer. Why should they be able to carry, and retired military not be able to? Or for that matter, why should they be able to carry in NYC, and the holder of a PA or WV or TX CCW permit not be able to?
