This is a very transparent attempt to move the goal post in the recent Supreme Court case. As a gun owner I oppose this rule change and the abuse of power this clearly shows.

For the safety of all New Yorkers, I implore the mayor, the city legislature, and the NYPD to leave this rule in place. That’s at a minimum. What we really need is for this rule to be strengthened. Why can people just carry their guns willy-nilly to ranges in the city? That just leads to people being stopped by the police and wasting the police’s time. I saw one guy who didn’t even have a gun, but the police thought he had one so they had to shoot him. It is unbelievable that we allow people to waste the NYPD’s time like that. If nobody was allowed to have guns at all, then only the police would have them and we wouldn’t have to worry about all these criminals legally carrying guns around. Take away their permits, and boom, no more criminals carrying guns. Only the police, who are trained to be expert marksmen. That’s why they give them 12-pound triggers — because they’re so skilled and knowledgeable about firearms. So please, don’t just leave this rule in place. Strengthen it for all New Yorkers and make people just keep their gun safely in a locker at the range all the time. And when you’re done with that, I was at Williams-Sonoma shopping for cookware, and I saw knives just laying out in the open, for sale to anyone who walks in! I mean, I grew up using paring knives and butter knives, we have a long tradition in this country of cutting apples and making PB&J. But an 8” chef’s knife? That’s only designed to kill people as many people as possible as quickly as possible. Nobody needs an 8” blade. So once you’re done implementing common sense gun safety policies, please ban these assault knives. They do not belong on our streets. Don’t let this absurd Supreme Court lawsuit scare you. I saw some people on the internet saying you’re considering this rule change purely in a doomed, bad-faith attempt to moot the case. That’s BS, I believe in you. So I believe that Mayor de Blasio can stand up to the gun and knife lobbies and finally rid New York of this outrageous scourge of individuals being responsible for themselves instead of just calling the police.

Guns are available for rent in most ranges/shooting clubs/competitions. If they don't have a carry permit, they shouldn't carry it - no matter what condition the gun is in. If there's a need to transport, submit an application for carry license. I oppose to the proposed amendment

This proposed rule change is fantastic and welcoming to us gun owners. Many of us have multiple residencies and would like to legally travel. This will not deteriorate any progress that NYPD has done to get guns off the streets, because NYC has the strictest gun laws, and extensive background checks are already being done.

This rule is vital to public safety in the city. People with premises permits can't be trusted to go directly to and from locations outside the city. The "target license" was eliminated "because of the difficulty in verifying whether a target licensee is, in fact, traveling to a firing range outside the City". The current rule "allows the City to promote public safety by better regulating and minimizing the instances of unlicensed transport of firearms on City streets". The rule has survived every court challenge so far, so it's worth defending at the Supreme Court. It passes intermediate scrutiny, so it complies with Heller v. DC and McDonald v. Chicago.

these new rules should not be adopted because the current rule is vital to public safety in the city.

I strongly disagree with the proposed rule changes. New York is the safest large Ciry in the nation because of our strict gun control. Any loosening of this control would undo the progress we have made.
