You have to apply on line and pick it up when it is ready. The number for the Wayne County Sheriff’s Pistol Section is (570) 253-2641. You do need a NY CCW for Wayne County to issue you a non resident permit.
You apply on line.
Once approved they will let you know and you can pick it up whenever you want. In fact you can check the status on their website.
There is no interview. Total cost is $25 — below is the link to their website.
Any permit issued by any jurisdiction in New York State without a NYC endorsement is not valid in NYC (by NYC I mean the 5 boroughs). Your Nassau/ Suffolk CCW is not valid in NYC. This has been the case for as long as I can remember. There are exceptions for law enforcement such as the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act.
The other issue in NY is that there is no State Preemption law which means that each county can impose licensing requirements to issue a license which are more restrictive than the State (Nassau drug test).
Just to add to the confusion….. the CCIA authorizes individuals to leave their unloaded handgun in the car in a safe that is secured to the vehicle. However, Nassau Pistol licensing specifically prohibits licensees from leaving weapons in the car.
interesting….so you can stop for gas/food when going to and from range but you can’t with a CCW if you are not traveling to and from the range. I will repeat what I always say….. every time a gun crime is committed the answer is more gun control which only criminalizes lawful gun ownership. Simply turning lawful gun owners into felons.
ViperJohn agree with you100%, but is that you should not be forced by the State to rely on your ability to conceal in order for the State to not catch you committing a class E felony. You should not be a potential felon because the State decides to constantly infringe on your Constitutional Right.
Also have we thought about the Hispanic or black 2A person who is a CCW holder doing the same thing and dealing with an unlawful pat down or pretext car stop after leaving the same gas station getting jammed up with an E felony.
Does a person also have to hesitate and think about getting arrested for lawfully using a handgun in a sensitive location?
……..and while the case is pending you lose your license, guns, job and incur legal fees. I agree with Peconic Paladin, Sig45……. however, NY State is playing with peoples’ rights and wellbeing by continuing to keep laws on the books that can significantly impact law abiding gun owners.
