You have to play politics especially when working in a Police Department. As most know the administration is anti gun and will use certain words like Public safety etc.

I have heard them, direct from the PC to me, and when I said well, in FL, they issue the same unrestricted license in Miami that they do in Apalachicola, I got told "Well, when something happens in FL they go after the State, here, they go after us", to which I countered "Then it's just about you covering your ass then, nothing more, isn't it? It has nothing to do with "Public Safety", or anything else" Silence. Firemanvin was there, he heard it too

i had such a situation a few years ago where a recently deceased WW2 Veteran had a German Walther PPK he brought back after the war as a souvenir.  After he died they found the gun in his safe deposit box.  The gun was surrendered to the local precinct, by a friend of the family with a pistol permit, with a copy of the death certificate and notice they were bringing it in.  The Executor of the Veteran's estate was later allowed to sell the gun [which was now vouchered in  the property bureau at headquarters ] to another person who had a valid pistol permit.

Actually, there is some partially correct info here.

The executor of an estate does have 15 days to legally dispose of a formerly legally possessed firearm, without fear of arrest.

HOWEVER, there  is ANOTHER provision in the Penal Law that allows the non criminal surrender of a non suspicious firearm.

 

Years ago I met my neighbor at an NCPD precinct (I was still active, he was afraid of getting stopped on the way). We turned the gun in, he went up to the squad and made a report, the gun was checked for stolen or wants, and he was able to sell the gun to a friend with a pistol license.

 

If you "find" a gun in your house, you can surrender it to the Police or Sheriff, and if it is not stolen or wanted you can get it back afterwards.

Yes, I found two revolvers in a home that I purchased. The Lieutenant said those revolvers will be destroyed as you do not own them. He was wrong, the property inside a home belongs to the owner on the deed. I would suggest calling the non emergency line to the local authorities and have them respond to the residence. It could become a debacle getting stopped with handguns without them being on a New York pistol license.

In my neighbors case, he had bought the gun legally in Florida when he resided there, so he simply told them that. The amnesty provision in the PL exempts him from arrest for the possession up until the surrender.

The neighbor transported the handgun from Florida to New York?
The penal law protects you buying a handgun out of state. Sounds like many Snowbirds are going to take that advice instead of shipping it to an FFL and keeping it on the books until the transfer.

Yes, he was a resident of Florida at the time and bought the gun legally and never got a permit here.

But the PL allows for a non suspicious surrender.
