So, the judge who signed my permit recently retired, so that means my permit has been handed off to a new judge. Now I am concerned about adding a new pistol to my permit. Seeing that I live in Albany County and a judge has to sign off on every amendment, I am concerned that whichever new judge I get might now restrict my unrestricted permit. Any thoughts...

But your never gonna buy another firearm in NY again cause that?? buy what you wish and send the amendment in, nobody gonna turn your permit into target/premise just cause your adding a new one on.

I really feel sorry for you guys having to worry about piddle ass **** like that, It's nice to guy go buy what ever you want when ever you want. I just bought a S&W 64-3 on Friday and I picked up a Taurus 85T and an old malin 22 rifle that I had on lay-away yesterday. No purchace tickets, no waiting for a lame ass anti-gun judge to sign orr, no coupons to pick up at the Sheriffs office.You just buy them and take them home. No permit needed to buy, sell, trade and open carry.

I'd buy your new gun and start another on a lay-away program, it's your right to be able to bear arms.

I can only speak for St. Lawrence County; my years-old not-restricted permit was NOT encumbered with restrictions when adding/removing some handguns. Just make it clear when applying for the amendment that your permit has NO restrictions, because the paper pushers will probably not even recognize this when making changes to it. Not sure about your county, but the judge does not even see amendments to the permit here in SLC. Everything is handled by the girls in the Clerk's Office as you wait. At least we still have that going for us.

Here, when adding a new pistol, the only card that is modified is the weapons list card. I just have to flash the actual permit one to prove I have it, but they only fiddle with the list one.

I notice that all the replies are from people who live outside Albany Co. It could happen ,but if your original permit was issued in Albany Co I think you will be alright. People transferring their permits from other counties into Albany Usually end up restricted . That's just the way Albany does things. Keep us posted on what happens. Right now amendments are taking about 3 wks.

The amendment forms you put in wouldn't say if your permit is restricted or not. That would only become a concern if changing the actual permit or when unsafe act renewals come into play.

I guess "afraid" was too strong a word. More like concerned. I just assumed that the judges that received piles of pistol permit files from a retiring judge would look through them. If you happened to get reassigned to a judge that does not believe in unrestricted permits, could he then go and add restrictions since he is now the judge of record?

I would highly doubt that a new judge would modify existing permits based on his own opinions or beliefs,assuming he is anti gun,more likely he would be less inclined to issue new unrestricted permits.

If you're still concerned about it, call and just say politely that you have a question you'd like to ask anonymously.

I had an unrestricted permit for over 25 yrs. I wanted to update my permit as it was well wallet worn and an old, old picture. My issuing Judge passed and
Judge Joseph Teresi got my file and my request for an updated duplicate. It came back "restricted". We had a meeting in his chambers, him and I, where he told me he didn't want people to have unrestricted permits and the state of NY says he can restrict and I could get a lawyer and fight his decision if I liked...

I believe no Judge's decision on a PP has been overturned in the history of the system in NY.

If I wanted to buy another pistol I wouldn't hesitate...

I'm having trouble following your reasoning. Aren't you saying "I got burned in exactly the way your worried about, so go ahead and get burned too"?
I have had this same concern in Orange. I'd like to pick up another pistol, but not if it meant losing my Unrestricted. And I'm worried about the new renewal process too.

Not sure I would let anything like that not make you buy another handgun. You won't be breaking any laws by continuing to carry like you always were, worst case scenario if they do, which is a possibility. If you're getting police checking your guns then you have other problems to be concerned about.

Wow,I guess I stand very corrected,I guess there is no limits to what liberal progressive douche nozzles will do with a little power.
