cation shall submit one photograph of himself or herself and a duplicate

such  investigation,  determine  if  the  applicant  has been previously
denied a license, been convicted of a felony, or  been  convicted  of  a
serious  offense,  and  either  approve  or disapprove the applicant for
exemption purposes based upon such determinations. If the  applicant  is
approved  for  the  exemption,  the  licensing  officer shall notify the
appropriate duly constituted police authorities and the applicant.  Such
exemption  shall terminate if the application for the license is denied,
or at any earlier time  based  upon  any  information  obtained  by  the

dence, present occupation of each person or individual signing the same,

the time of filing such application. Such request shall include a signed
and  verified  statement by the person authorized to instruct and super-

ing officer shall no later than ten business days after the  receipt  of
such  investigation,  determine  if  the  applicant  has been previously
denied a license, been convicted of a felony, or  been  convicted  of  a
serious  offense,  and  either  approve  or disapprove the applicant for
exemption purposes based upon such determinations. If the  applicant  is
approved  for  the  exemption,  the  licensing  officer shall notify the
appropriate duly constituted police authorities and the applicant.  Such
exemption  shall terminate if the application for the license is denied,
or at any earlier time  based  upon  any  information  obtained  by  the
licensing  officer  or  the  appropriate  police authorities which would
cause the license to be denied. The  applicant  and  appropriate  police
authorities shall be notified of any such terminations.

ises. A license to carry or possess a pistol or revolver, OR TO PURCHASE

however,  that if such license was not issued in the city of New York it

county, as the case may be, where issued. Notwithstanding any inconsist-
ent provision of state or local law or rule or regulation, the  premises

licensee  is  lawfully  authorized  to  have  and possess such pistol or
revolver; provided however, that during such  transport  to  or  from  a
location  specified  in  clauses (i) through (iv) of this paragraph, the
pistol or revolver shall be unloaded and carried in a locked  container,
and  the  ammunition  therefor  shall  be  carried  separately; provided
further, however, that a license to have and possess a pistol or  revol-

ises for which it is issued and shall be valid only for such premises.

pistol or revolver shall have on his or her person a  license  to  carry

ination  of  inventory  or  records under this section at such temporary
location shall be limited to inventory consisting of, or records related
to, firearms held or disposed at such temporary  locations.  Failure  of
any  licensee  to  so exhibit or display his or her license, as the case
may be, shall be presumptive  evidence  that  he  or  she  is  not  duly
licensed.
 9.  License:  amendment.  Elsewhere  than  in  the city of New York, a
person licensed to carry or possess a pistol or revolver OR TO  PURCHASE
OR TAKE POSSESSION OF A SEMIAUTOMATIC RIFLE may apply at any time to his

yes
And even after new purchases the license is not required to justify possession.
The license is like pistol in some ways and not like it in some ways.

Give it 5 years and they will outlaw all semi autos with no grandfathering. Turn them in, sell to an FFL, or render inoperable.

If Thomas doesn't come down hard in his decision this month, NY is really toast. You think we have it bad now? A soft ruling will mean the end of all guns in NY soon.

They just outlawed others without grandfathering...and +10 mags before that. Only a matter of time.

That is assuming the Senate does not go full retard and give the entire country the laws of New York State in the near future Schumer has said today that the negotiators either come up with a package by the end of the week or he throws the entire Democrat package at the wall to be voted on (and I am not too confident in the Republicans these days). At that point, the only advantage will be lower taxes in another state. And that even assumes an economic crash does not force taxes up everywhere.

Tangentially; Did I miss something in the language about "Grandfathered Magazines"?   I thought un-SAFE made all magazines except those associated and registered respective to specific C&R Rifles illegal if over ten rounds.

I mean.. The new law also did state they made it illegal to carry guns on school property. It's like they don't even know they already have made stuff illegal..

With safe, you could say "I didn't know my previously legal pre-ban mags were made illegal" and it was a usable defense against prosecution.

With their latest law, it's now a felony to have pre-ban mags. No more "I didn't know" defense.

With NYSRPA vs. Bruen, NY can't really ban mags anymore though...in my non lawyer opinion. There's no way it can stand with text history and tradition.
