Things to know about the New York pistol licensing law
- If you are in violation of licensure law, you would not be subject to criminal prosecution, but you may face suspension or license revocation. However, if you commit a crime while you are IN violation or without a license, you could face serious penalties.
- New York State Penal Law provides for immediate revocation of permit if you are convicted of a felony crime or serious offense.
- Muzzle loading pistols and revolvers do not have to be registered IF you do not intend to fire them. If they are loaded, or if you own the components necessary to fire an antique pistol, you must be registered on a valid pistol permit.
- If you inherit a pistol lawfully after a licensee has died, you can possess the firearm for up to 15 days if you have the sole purpose of disposing of the firearm. If you cannot dispose of the weapon, you must surrender the property to a law enforcement agency.
- A pistol permit issued in an upstate county is valid in any other county in the state EXCEPT New York City.
