Ammoland recently obtained several leaked emails indicating New York authorities plan to shut down the entire process of concealed carry permit applications in the coming months.
The state of New York recently passed the Concealed Carry Improvement Act (CCIA), which will require that residents of the state go through new hoops to get their concealed carry permits. This new legislation will need some restructuring in the New York government, so they may be planning on shutting down the permit application process for that period.
As is being reported in Ammoland:
Multiple leaks have indicated that any New York State pistol permit not issued by September 1, 2022, will need to be resubmitted or updated to meet the new training requirement laid out under the recently passed “Concealed Carry Improvement Act” (CCIA).
Multiple emails leaked to AmmoLand News have shown that New York State plans to shut down the permitting process on September 1, 2022.
At least until the Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) and Superintendent of State Police come up with the details of the newly required and likely difficult training regime under CCIA. The estimated date for the training course to be designed and submitted to the State for approval is April 1, 2023!?
That means that New York State will stop issuing permits for seven (7) months.
This would be a massive setback following the victory 2nd Amendment supporters took in New York State Pistol & Rifle Association v. Bruen.
