    I have my application in front of the judge right now. I am not interested in a CCW, no real need for one but I do want the target, hunting and hiking restriction. But I was arrested back in college for being involved in a fight and received 2 counts of disorderly conduct, not something I'm proud of at all but it's there to stay. I live in Onondaga county, do I have a chance at even getting a permit at all or should I just count this one out?

    How long ago did you get arrested? If it is in front of the judge the background section must have passed you. I'd say it depends on who you get. Judge Walsh is tough on permits, while Aloi is a little more lenient.

    I was arrested three years ago, a really minor stupid thing, but I am really embarrassed about it even being on my record. I am worried that because of such a small incident I won't qualify even for a restricted carry seeing as how strict Onondaga county is. And thank you to KB2MBC for the link, lots of useful info in there.

    Taken from the NYS Penal code:

    S 240.20 Disorderly conduct.
    A person is guilty of disorderly conduct when, with intent to cause
    public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creating a risk
    thereof:
    1. He engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening
    behavior; or
    2. He makes unreasonable noise; or
    3. In a public place, he uses abusive or obscene language, or makes an
    obscene gesture; or
    4. Without lawful authority, he disturbs any lawful assembly or
    meeting of persons; or
    5. He obstructs vehicular or pedestrian traffic; or
    6. He congregates with other persons in a public place and refuses to
    comply with a lawful order of the police to disperse; or
    7. He creates a hazardous or physically offensive condition by any act
    which serves no legitimate purpose.
    Disorderly conduct is a violation.

    Since it's a violation, I wouldn't think it would be much of a big deal.
    Good luck!

    In NYS, a violation isn't a crime. Only misdemeanors and felonies. I think that you're fine OP.

    Just as an update I was granted a sportsman carry restriction on the 8th and am now a proud Glock 17 owner. Picked the gun up this morning. After all of this my wife, who has been a life long hater of guns decided to go for her license as well and is very excited about it, she's even trying to convince one of her friends to do it. What she said as her reason for changing her mind gave me goosebumps. "I figure that since guns are going to be in our home and in our lives that I should learn to overcome my fear and learn to respect and use a handgun properly." I am so proud lol. She said she will go for her license as long as she gets her own gun. As if I'm going to say no.

    Congratulations.

    My wife never handled a firearm before we got engaged.
    She started shooting for the same reasons as your wife.

    Now, she's about the most pro-SA person I know and has many handguns and long guns of her own. In fact, I 'lost' a few of mine to her.

    We now have grown & married daughters and they also are licensed and do carry.

    Good luck.

    Assuming you two are going to stay together, I suggest putting each other's guns on both permits. That way, if anything ever happens to one of you, then either of you are still legal with all the guns in your house.


    The other school of thought, from some people who have gotten divorced, is to not list the guns on each other's permits, that way dividing them up is easier. Something like that, but I don't subcribe to that school of thought.

    That's a really good idea, I have never thought of that. I think that is something we will definitely do.

    It will still show up on your criminal history so I hope you disclosed it.
