Lol, I respectfully disagree. The officer that handled my application said with the political climate and threat to our gun rights they simply cannot handle the amount of applications. Why would a cop give two shits about delaying my process? Makes no sense to me.About 6 years ago NCPD was issuing a pistol license in 3 months. The county was threatened with a lawsuit. The petitioner dropped the lawsuit and the wait times eventually went back over 7 months.
The SCPD and Suffolk Sheriffs Office can complete applications in the 6 month time frame. It’s done to inconvenience people.
A "cop" might not, but his supervisors and those brass seeking advancement needing the blessing of the political leaders play the tune thats called by the County. There is no investigatory work being done in these license sections that requres 16 months to complete. Pennsylvania, and a plethoria of other states and counties turn these licenses around universally under 2 months, doing the same background check, with the same staffing.Lol, I respectfully disagree.

In the upstate counties, the Judge has the absolute ability to deny you for not being of good moral character. In NYC, Nassau and Suffolk County. The officer gets the paperwork signed off by his supervisor and you are issued a restricted pistol license. A Judge will factor everything since the Local Police and State Police Zone Sergeant for the area are part of conducting the applicant investigation. If you have an issue of a disturbance or known to have a history with the Police in the county. He will deny you, even if you never been arrested.If there was an interest is supporting individuals’ 2A rights more staff would be assigned to Pistol Licensing Division- the Police Commissioner has the authority to issue a full carry (it is done upstate and an upstate resident can carry in LI). The County Executive can also replace the Police Commissioner. The bottom line is that until we all demand it with our votes nothing will change. We should also educate our friends and neighbors and understand that 2A rights are our individual rights and include all races colors and political parties. There are 2A supporters everywhere but NY Politicians are afraid to support it.
