    In about 2-3 weeks at most I'll be applying for a full carry permit in NY. The process is ridiculous! I have to have 4 references sign 3 applications and then I must provide envelopes with the references address so they can be mailed a questionnaire to fill out and mail back! I also must have a picture of my safe bolted to a wall or the floor. Then I have to write a letter on why I want a full carry that goes to a Judge! I will also have to have a court date set and appear in front of the Judge and explain why I want a full carry permit. Somewhere in the process I have to go to the Sheriff's office and get fingerprinted...pretty standard....and have an interview with a Deputy.
    The amount of paperwork I must send in with my applications is massive....lol!
    Now I do have some people helping me out with the process so it should be pretty quick by NY standards, but I'm guessing a few months as opposed to 1yr....hopefully!
    I got the Chief of Police and a Lt as 2 of my references so I should be okay....I hope...lol

    Because bolting your safe to the floor of your home, makes the gun you carry in public inherently less dangerous. Love me some politician logic.

    It’s sad all the hoops you have to jump through these politicians came up with.

    When I lived in Jersey we had to do the references, fingerprints and wait just to get the Firearm Purchaser ID card. That was only good on long guns. You had to reapply for a pistol permit that let you buy a pistol. All the same paperwork and wait times. Plus it expired after about a month so you had to buy that pistol within the timeframe or you were out of luck. A carry license was unobtainable.

    Texas, go to your gun store, provide ID, quick NICS check and your out the door.
    Carry license, took 30 days to get after mailing in the paperwork and taking class.

    I’m always surprised when you tell people you’re from NJ.

    That was WA state until July 1st this year. Now state is doing background. No more NICS courtesy checks.

    Constitutional Carry in my state. Don’t know how long that will last and then I will have to get CCW. F**k those liberal states and their absurd gun laws.

    Surely not a slam towards you, but...
    When the demonrats take over, your state will be just like all the rest of the liberal states. Enjoy your freedom while you still can.

    Not sure what county you live in, but most county`s here in NY won`t let you use law enforcement as references (any county officials for that matter). I was told conflict of intrest is why we cant use LE (or county officials) for references in my county. You might want to talk to your county clerks at the court house on that. Make sure you`re in the clear, because that would suck having to start the process all over again and be delayed that much longer.

    And GOOD LUCK, i hope you get it! Back when i got mine, 3 month wait, it was in my hand.

    Constitutional Carry has been expanding across the USA like CCW had years before.
    As divided as the nation is currently I hope that the younger generations will look into the reasons for the divide and learn the beauty of our founding and lean towards freedom and liberty when choosing politicians in America’s future.

    But we are all going to campaign hard and vote right see to it that the Dems never take charge, right? It's really important this time.

    No offense taken whatsoever, and I fear you are right. My state is already leaning more liberal thanks to all the liberal douchebags from California moving here. I will eventually move to the last conservative stronghold I can find and then the liberals will come for my firearms one day and I will gladly let them take it from my cold dead hand.

    I will probably get my CCW before too long just so I have it in case something stupid changes here with the gun laws. We will see how it all plays out. We are living in some crazy times man. I am not going to preach to anyone and push my faith on anyone but IMHO it is time to get right with God or whatever higher power you believe in and get ready for what’s coming.

    The Dems have gone so far left it is unreal. I don’t know how anyone could support democrats at this point. Say what you want about President Trump, like him or hate him I don’t care but the Dems have completely gone off the rails.

    It is my belief that that God is the higher power and "what is coming" can be adverted at least for a while. We just need to all get involved.

    In my county they accept LEO's on the application. You are right though! Most counties do not accept Leo's as references.
