    Question NYC Questions. Need help on a serious matter.

    I have a very close friend that I grew up with in NYC. He currently lives in Queens and several years ago divorced his wife. His wife remarried a man ( a known gang member) that recently threatened the life of my friend and his family. My friend wants to purchase a firearm to have in his home to protect his family in the event of a possiblity that he may have to someday protect his family. He is certain that the police will never make it to his home in time, in the event the person that threatened him actually follows through with his threat. He is scared for his life and the safety of his wife and children.

    He does not want to obtain a carry permit but wants to know- is it illegal in the City of New York to posses a firearm in his home only for personal protection. If not, then what does he need to do legally obtain a firearm for his home in NYC.

    I wish I knew...

    If there is a urgent need, I might not concern myself too much with being 100% legal. That however, is a highly personal decision. risk vs. reward. $$/jail vs. fear/death.

    It is definitely legal to purchase a firearm in NYC with a valid Premises Permit. The waiting period for this when we applied years ago was something like six months. The whole process is a huge hassel and quite expensive, but it's the only legal way to possess a firearm in one's home.

    By the way, your friend's reason for securing a permit must be "target/hunting.'' NYC doesn't believe self defence is a good reason, unless you're a celebrity or "connected." Also, a requirement was that you belonged to a fireing range. I remember we had to secure a letter from a range in Brooklyn showing we were members - yes, we had to pay to join BEFORE the fact!

    Here is a FAQ on firearms in NYC NYPD - Permits

    Here is information on handguns in NYC.

    The License Division

    The License Division receives many inquiries from the public regarding the procedures involved in obtaining a permit for a handgun. Because of the serious safety concerns inherent in the possession of handguns, it is recommended that the decision to obtain a handgun license be carefully considered and that a licensee receive training in the safety and use of a handgun. Licensees must become familiar with all laws and regulations relating to handgun ownership. The following sections provide information in order to assist persons who wish to apply for a handgun license. They do not in any way imply that a license application will be approved.

    The following pages have been prepared as a guide to assist you in deciding which type of handgun license may be appropriate for you. If you decide to apply for a license you must APPEAR IN PERSON at the License Division with the completed application, the documents specified in the application instructions, the application fee, and the fingerprint fee. These are the only fees you are required to pay to have your application processed. The fees must be in the form of two U.S. POSTAL OR BANK-DRAWN MONEY ORDERS, made payable to the New York City Police Department, CASH IS NOT ACCEPTED. Make sure that you save the receipt for your application fee given to you by the cashier. This receipt is proof of payment and contains your application number, which is required for any subsequent inquiries regarding the status of your application.

    If you intend to apply for a license related to your employment, profession, or business, you may ask to speak to an application reviewer who will screen your application and documents, and will assist you in determining the type of license you appear to be eligible for. Whether or not you choose to have your application screened by a reviewer, you will have to provide the documentation specified in the application instructions at the time of application submission.

    After you file your application you will be contacted for an interview and may be required to submit additional documentation. All documents will be examined and evaluated, and all factors will be considered in making the determination as to your qualification for an employment, profession, or business related license.

    Regardless of the reviewer's recommendation, you may apply for whichever type of license you choose. The screening process is merely an attempt to assist you, and does not affect the final decision regarding your application. You must be twenty-one (21) years of age to apply for a handgun license or rifle/shotgun permit.


    Types of Licenses

    PREMISES LICENSE: IS A RESTRICTED TYPE OF LICENSE. It is issued for your RESIDENCE or BUSINESS. The Licensee may possess a handgun ONLY on the premises of the address indicated on the front of the license. Licensees may also transport their handguns and ammunition in SEPARATE LOCKED CONTAINERS, DIRECTLY to and from an authorized range, or hunting location. HANDGUNS MUST BE UNLOADED while being transported.

    CARRY BUSINESS LICENSE: Is valid for the business name, address, and handguns listed on the front of the license. It is not transferable to any other person, business, occupation, or address, without the written approval of the commanding officer, license division.

    LIMITED CARRY BUSINESS LICENSE: IS A RESTRICTED TYPE OF LICENSE. The licensee may only carry handguns indicated on the license in accordance with the specific limitations listed thereon. At all other times the handgun may be possessed only within the confines of the business address listed on the front of the license.

    SPECIAL CARRY LICENSE: Is valid for the business name, address and handguns listed on the front of this license, only while the licensee has in his possession a valid basic county license issued according to the provisions of article 400 of the N.Y.S. Penal law. Upon the revocation, suspension, or cancellation of the basic license, the special license is rendered void and must be immediately returned to the license division.

    CARRY GUARD LICENSE: (SECURITY GUARDS, ETC.) Applications for this type of license must be made with the documentation provided by a company's Gun Custodian. It is issued only for the handgun listed on the license. The handgun may be carried only while the licensee is actively engaged in employment for the company whose name appears on the license, and/or while licensee is in transit directly to or from residence and place of employment. At all other times the handgun must be stored unloaded in a locked container, at either the address on the license, or at the employee's legal residence (within the State of New York).


    Hangun License Consulting Firms

    It has come to the attention of the License Division that certain consulting firms have advised licensees that renewals are no longer automatic and that the License Division has refused to renew hundreds of licensees. This is untrue. License renewals continue to be routinely processed and approved in the overwhelming majority of cases. Only in an extremely small number of cases in which the application indicates a substantial change in circumstances, e.g., different business, does the License Division require additional information in order to determine continued qualification for a carry permit. In such cases licenses are routinely extended for those individuals who need time to provide additional information. This is not the first time that the department has received complaints concerning misrepresentations and misleading information proffered by various persons or associations who indicate that they can assist applicants in receiving a handgun license or can expedite the process. These firms cannot obtain a handgun license or renewal for you if you do not qualify, nor can they expedite your application. The application instructions are self-explanatory, and the License Division screening and information process will provide assistance to applicants and licensees. If you have any questions, contact the License Division renewal section at (646) 610-5872 and someone will assist you.

    If you were ever convicted or pled guilty to a felony offense or a serious offense, as defined in Penal Law Section 265.00(17), an original Certificate of Relief of Disabilities, signed by a judge, must be submitted.

    Default NYC Defies the Laws of Physics

    I'm from NYC originally and when it comes to firearms---NYC Defies the Laws of Physics--it sucks and blows at the same time. The laws are specifically set up to prevent the lawful citizen from obtaining a firearm. Long, expensive and dealing with monumentally stupid city employees!
