Today is the deadline for New York residents with pistol permits obtained more than 5-years ago to get re-certified.
Under New York’s Safe Act, those who had their permits issued before January 15, 2013 must renew or their permit could be revoked. For those that obtained a pistol permit after January 15, 2013, then you must recertify by the 5-year anniversary date from when you originally obtained your permit.
State Police are available to answer any questions about the recertification process you may have.
