The rules seem to be the same as they always were here in Rockland County. I tried to get my restrictions removed on Friday and they told me the Supreme Court ruling was irrelevant. Until they here different from the Governor I still need to prove a "just cause" to carry and my reason can be denied by the judge if he feels it's not sufficient.So what's the thought on the process to get your license adjusted to a full carry conversion in places like Westchester County?
Do we fill out the paperwork and just request full carry? Jochul posted a tweet basically saying that "the rules don't change," (which is absolutely comical), but posted the NY website which quietly implies that it does.
Reason for full carry on the form "need for self-defense"
A firearms license is a state license however it is issued under the authority of county licensing officers.www.ny.gov
- As of the U.S. Supreme Court’s Bruen ruling, only the proper cause requirement to conceal carry is no longer applicable and ordinary citizens are deemed to have a self-defense basis for applying for a concealed carry permit.
Some counties are not complying with the Supreme Court decision. I don't know what I expected to be honest, this is New York after all...
