I live in suffolk county new york WE MUST carry concealed going to a range The law in new york city and the 5 boroughs is you must carry your pistol in a locked box CASE CLOSED
i know i didn't start this but you are out of line. my permit, my buddy's permit, and this other guy's permit is restricted. yes we can not carry "24/7" i personally know why my buddy and mine is restricted, i can not speak directly for the other. unless we can show "proper cause" to "need" a 24/7 permit you will not get one. either you live in a "better" county or you have a reason to "need" a 24/7 permit. which if is the case i wouldn't mind hearing what yer "proper cause" is. with that said, i have read my buddy's paper work which states that he can "carry concealed" to and from his "activities" nothing stating that it has to be locked up (as a side note his paper list's his sportsman license for hunting, target, camping, hiking, birdwatching, and i believe there was at least one more). just like the other poster's paper work states that he can carry his weapon to and from his activities. as far as my county, i have not been able to get an answer to what i can and can not do with my sportsman's restriction, i've gotten as far as the officer that run's the permit application's. the last step i have to finding out my restriction's is talking to the judge. which i hope to hold off untill i get my restriction's removed. you really do come across as somebody who thinks their better than everybody else just because you have a 24/7 permit. for what it's worth my mother and late father both have had their 24/7 permits for 30+ year's.
oh and YES i can carry while driving as long as i am going to or from on of my above mentioned activities.
Homebuilt..give it up. I said everything I needed to say to armed-an-rdy. He just doesnt get it. As you and i said, he seems to think he is better than the rest of us. All I know is we, in this forum, are all on the same team and are here to learn from each other. Anyone who goes through the trouble, hassle, expense, training and intensive backround check deserves to have an unrestricted license. Some counties are more 2A friendly than others. Does that make us any different. I dont think so. Remember we are all "ARMED AND READY".
