Comment:
I support the proposed rule changes. I have attached a document of several additional rule changes which I believe are necessary to comply with Osterweil, benefit pistol permit holders, and render the Supreme Court case moot.

We are law abiding citizens and not criminals, yet we are being treated as such. I have went through all of the necessary background checks required to own a handgun and yet NYC continues to infringe upon my Second Amendment Rights.The current rule imposed by New York City is a clear violation of those rights and needs to be challenged.

Rules should permit the right to take pistol outside NYC to any other place lawfully permitted to carry. For example, I have full carry for NY state - I should be able to transport pistol to movie theater in Westchester.

The second amendment states "shall not be infringed" The current rule and even th "new" proposed rule infringe on my right to move the firearms I own. New York City has no right to control my activity once I leave the city.

I fully support the change. It has unfairly rhe ability to train and become proficient with a handgun. Also restricts being able to bring your firearm to an other residence you may have out of the city, even if it’s unloaded and in a locked box. Please change the law.

The process in which to obtain a pistol permit in NYC is a deterrent. The high application fee(s) is a deterrent. Per the guidelines, an applicant (once given a purchase authorization) is free to purchase a pistol throughout NYS. Once the pistol is purchased, inspected by NYPD and brought into your NYC home, your restrictions kick in. As a pistol owner in NYC, you are forbidden to transport the firearm out of NYC for any reason BUT you can transport the pistol to Upstate New York to hunt with (with authorization) while a request to transport the pistol to a range within NYS but outside of NYC is denied...…..CLEAR CONTRADICTION. THE RULES MUST BE FULLY REPEALED. ANYTHING LESS IS UNACCEPTABLE AND UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Thank You and God Bless.

This is attempt to put a band aid on the problem.Anything short of repeal is unacceptable, It’s a our constitutional right not a privilege!

I would respectfully ask the NYPD to expand the language in this amendment to include Limited Carry and Unrestricted Carry licenses as well. All NYC license holders should have the ability to take their firearms out of state for competitions, training, and practice. The current NYC "approved" ranges do not offer many of the training programs available at other locations and most (if not all) require a membership. In addition, the permitted NYC citizens have been through one of the most intensive screening process in the country. If they are trusted to posses firearms in NYC I'm sure they can be trusted to safely transport out of state. Thank you.

NYS Pistol Permit process in and of itself is laughable when one considers the right to self defense and gun ownership is a right not a privilege. "May Issue" permits are blatantly unconstitutional, and then there is a fee as well. NYS beaurocrats should be concerned, since 2008 SCOTUS has ignored the attacks on the 2nd amendment, the court has now shifted and SCOTUS is now agreeing to hear these cases. I think a reckoning is on its way, and personally idprefer the State of New York leaves these laws "as is" so SCOTUS can review them in "all their splendor". Kavanaugh was very clear in his dissent on DC v Heller 2, about Scalia's test of history, text and tradition. I believe there is some concurrence about the level of scrutiny that states must apply when contemplating gun legislation, and I think thats why they may have agreed to hear this case. I believe NY's beaurocrats feel the same way, and thats why your trying to move the goalposts here. I dont believe its going to matter. We will still get review, and the remainder of the law is riddled with violations and inconsistencies.
