Amazing how NY has these strict gun laws, but they are completely different requirements County by County. Living in Upstate NY just about everyone gets CCW permits. When you purchase a new gun, you have to go to the County Clerks office and they add the gun your permit. You get coupon that goes back to the FFL/Seller as the proof the County has registered the gun against your permit. No police involved. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
