    That brings up the point. They have had your money for over a year. Hmmmmmmm
    I wonder if there is any legal point here.
    If you owed the IRS a hundred dollars for over a year there would be interest and penalty
    So they have the money in the bank for over a year with nothing to show for it.

    I wonder if a class action lawsuit would build a fire under their fannies.

    He said they got over 1000 applications in 2009 because of Obama.
    1000 permits for SEVEN employees in this office. That works out to 19 applications per WEEK if it takes a whole year! Seven people can't process 19 applications per WEEK in an entire year?? Sorry, they need "overtime" in order to do it.

    Soon. Moving soon. This motivates me even more to get out of this state.

    Agreed.
    But the people of New York and Erie county voted in the turkeys that made these laws in Albany, in the first place.
    Then we voted in the County Council and the Judges and the Sheriff's.
    We have been lead to the slaughter by elitist progressive self-serving politicians with a partner in the main stream media, slowly but surely.

    Now Bloomberg is positioning to run for Governor?

    I only hope that other states wake up in time to not follow the morally bankrupt and fiscally bankrupt Soviet Socialist State of New York.

    Another Good Point well taken. only problem is its hard to judge those politions when thier running for office the lies just keep going and going. all pistol permit holders in Erie County need to form an assiociation to stop these County workers from over running us and stand up for what is right sometimes one voice is just not enough. we need to be heard I only wish it was that simple If any of you have any Ideas on how to put something together let us know together we can make a difference

    In Minnesota it takes less then 10 days for permit to buy, 30 days for permit to carry. I have been reading all about the hassle a resident of NYS has to go through just to put holes in paper with a .22.

    This is just unbelivable.

    My heart goes out to those in NYS. I have heard that NJ is even worse.

    Hang in there.

    The permit came today. The end of an 18 month odyssey, starting with my decision to get a permit, then waiting for the course to be held, then 16 months from the time I submitted my application to the day the permit arrived.

    If the Supreme Court rules that the second amendment applies to the state, I wouldn't be surprised to hear some politicians in Erie County clamoring to revoke all revocable handgun permits on the theory that they were issued under a "revocable at anytime" premise. If the second amendment applies to the states, the county might not be able to issue "revocable at anytime" permits. So they might simply revoke all such existing permits and make everyone apply for permits that can't be revoked at any time. I'm sure blumberg has already thought of this for NYC.

    But if that happens I think one could successfully argue that a constitutional right that takes more than 6 months to exercise is a denial of those rights. Unfortunately, it will take lengthy litigation to get to that conclusion.

    Please tell me how long it took from the time you got the "you have been approved" letter until you actually got the permit. I'm on week 12 since I got my approval letter and I've filed a complaint with the county clerk due to this delay. I'm at a full year since I submitted my application. This SUCKS! Just move to another state if you have the means. It's not even worth it.

    I got my approval letter November 25 (the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.) I went to Gander Mountain Thanksgiving night and bought a S&W 22A because it was a sale for $230 and I got $40 in gander cards (which turned into $60 because they couldn't process thye paperwork that night and gave me another $20 for having to come back Friday.) My net cost was $170 for the gun.

    I went to the Clerk's office Friday November 27 to drop off the paperwork, pay $20, and smile for the camera.

    That was 68 days ago - 2 days shy of ten weeks.
