i officially hate nys even more than i did before because today i found that not only do you have to be 21 to purchase ANY handgun but also you have to wait 6 months and get 7 civil servant references to boot then pay some special "gun" tax and at this i found my new fueled hate i cant even take a handgun out hunting with me and now ill have to waste extra shotgun or rifle ammo just to put the friggin deer down if i had a bad shot this pisses me off

NY sucks?

It sounds like you live in the nyc area,move to anywhere in the upstate area as gun permits are far easier to obtain, forget writing to a Gov. who did not ask for the job in the first place, he is a liberal democrat and you will only be beating a dead horse :mad:

Move West, young man! You'll be welcome out here as long as you leave you NY city attitudes back East.

Guns and stuff are easier, but the government (generally) doesn't pretend to be your mommy so much.

Federal regulations prohibit sales of handguns to anyone under 21 from a licensed dealer, it's apparently silent about private transactions. States can restrict as well. So don't just get mad at NYS for not getting a handgun.

I hate NY too, but you don't really know the meaning of "suck" until you've lived under the mega oppressive guns laws in mAssachusetts.......

You could move to Virginia like I did. The deer are about the size of chihuahuas here in the south, but if you shoot 3 or 4 of them, you can make a meal.
You aren't anywhere near the Thousand Islands, are you? State senator Darrel Aubertine is a hunter, so you should start by publicly questioning him about any intentions of getting rid of some of the ridiculous handgun laws up there. I don't know about Renzi, but with the current pissing contests going on between the two, it might be a good time to bring up the topic.

Yankees suck. I mean, NYS sucks. Those gun laws sound ridiculous, but not much compares to MA. :(

You must live down near the city. I live in the Adirondacks and only took me about 3-5 weeks to get my permit with no hassles at all. 4 references, finger prints, application and i was done. If it was any simpler to get a permit the state wouldn't be issuing them... I think like vermont if i'm not mistaken. Hamilton county in particular (where i live) is the easiest county to get a permit from what i have heard.

Thats one of the many reasons I moved from CA to OH.
Half my guns would be illegal in CA.

I love Colorado!!!! I took an NRA class that was 3 days long. Great class. Got to shoot in the dark, from behind baracades, practiced shooting before getting stabbed. ( the Stabber was behind you.) You had to place two shots in a target in front of you before he could stab you in the back. I was done in one weekend. Applied for my permit the next Tuesday. They said it would take 6 weeks. Two weeks later I was carrying with a valid permit in my wallet!!! I love Colorado!!!! We don't even need references...just a background check.
