If it passes I hope there is no carve out for off duty and retired law enforcement.

I'd be shocked. They already had an exception for concealed carry prior to last week's ruling.

Its not going to change anything. They still have to issue the permits, and people can still carry on the street.



All SCOTUS said was they had to issue permits, but NY still gets to set the bar to allowing them, and they just raised that bar pretty high.


 requires applicants display “good moral character,” pass a firearm safety course and provide data from their social media accounts as part of strengthened background checks.


Applicants must participate in a firearm safety course, undergo “enhanced screening” with in-person interviews and submit to reviews of their social media. Additionally, the New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services will review permit holders’ records monthly for criminal convictions, criminal indictments and protection orders.


Purchasing ammunition would also trigger a background check by DCJS, and the bill further restricts the types of body armor that can be sold. And Hochul said Friday she’d tear up a deal struck under her predecessor Andrew Cuomo that stalled the implementation of an ammo sales database.
