New York State gun laws are among the strictest in the Nation and even though citizens have a federally protected Constitutional right to bear arms, navigating the application process can be a daunting and time consuming task.
If you are considering applying for a New York State Concealed Carry Permit, or have already been denied or facing revocation, contact Cillis Law for help with any of the following:
In order to possess a concealed handgun in New York State, one must submit to a thorough background check and complete a State and local pistol permit application. Do not apply for a New York State Pistol Permit without consulting with Cillis Law first.
Any omission, no matter how small or how old, on your New York State Pistol Permit Application can be grounds for denial. With our help, we can determine exactly what your background check will show so we can make sure we make a full and accurate disclosure on your application.
If you have already applied for and been denied a New York State Pistol Permit, let Cillis Law review and determine if we simply need to amend your application or prepare an appeal. Many times, denials are issued without good cause and we can determine the issue and help you correct it.
Even if you already have your New York State Pistol Permit, do not take it for granted. Any new arrest or issuance of an Order of Protection can be grounds for suspension and revocation. Even previous mental health issues and treatment can give rise to a suspension and revocation proceeding.
Often local law enforcement agencies are reluctant to return seized weapons, but don't let that be the end of it. Cillis Law can facilitate and obtain a Court Order directly the police to return what rightfully belongs to you.
