    I am preparing to apply for a pistol permit and I'm confused as to which locality to apply in. My mailing address is Schenectady 12309 while my property is within the town of Colonie and I pay Colonie taxes. This is a case where the zip code overlaps the county border. Based on this should I...

Would that be an automatic denial due to my residence? 2. Under the section where you put all your information, it...

    I have a cottage in Wyoming county in Perry, NY and I live in Erie county (Kenmore). I know that Erie is much longer wait for permit processing, would it be possible for me to change the address on my NY ID to my other address and then do the application in WYO instead? I would probably be...

    California's 4th District (Division 1) Court of Appeal just held that the Second Amendment does not apply to semi-automatic firearms like "AK" platform rifles.

  11. Pistol Permits
    Going to be going to Maine for a week or so this summer, mainly to hike and enjoy the national park. They don't honor non-resident permits from anywhere, so I need to get a Maine non-resident. Anybody here ever gotten one? Seems straight forward except that they want proof of training.
  12. Laws and Politics - Firearms/Self Defense/Weapons
    IMHO, if this makes it to scotus, it will be because the 7 round mag is a de-facto ban on hanguns which Heller has already ruled on. It will also bring the entire pistol permitting process into focus. If everyone applies, it will log jam the system and make it appear even more broken than it...
