Hawley urges pistol permit holders to recertify by Jan. 31, 2018
Press Release, Assemblyman Steve Hawley
In his ongoing efforts to preserve our Second Amendment rights, Assemblyman Steve Hawley (R-Batavia) today reminded pistol permit holders to recertify their permits by January 31, 2018 in order to prevent them from becoming invalid.
If your pistol permit was issued before January 15, 2013, you must recertify your permit before January 31, 2018. If your permit was issued on or prior January 15, 2013, the deadline is five years after the date the permit was issued.
“Unfortunately, this is a new mandate on pistol permit holders in New York and the first year that owners have to recertify,” Hawley said. “The deadline is coming up and many New Yorkers may be unaware of these new requirements. As much as we may disagree with the unconstitutional Safe Act, if we come out in droves to recertify it will send the message to state leadership that we cherish our Second Amendment right to bear arms, and will not be silenced by any big government policies, as frustrating as they might seem.”
