New York's pistol permit system is a farce and an absolute waste of resources and it is an undue burden on the applicants. I moved out of New York more than a decade ago and since then I have lives in two "shall issue states". A "shall issue" state means that if you do not have a criminal background and your references check out, you get your CCW permit. The incidence rate in "shall issue" states is lower than it is in New York. New York's system is set up to deter people from applying. New York's handgun registration is a prelude to confiscation, in-fact, confiscation was Cuomo's first desire, the SAFE act is that extremists lowest compromise. Make no mistake New York, when they get a chance, Cuomo and Gerace are coming for your guns.

I got mine last year and it took a full 8 months. Ridiculous since I have a spotless clean record. Not even a speeding ticket.

I got my NY permit several years ago, it took 10 months. I also have my permit in Pennsylvania, it took 10 days. My NY permit is "valid unless revoked". A broken promise by NY with the "SAFE" legislation. Outlaws, people who operate outside the law, do not go through this process. I think "shall issue" is good enough.

It is amazing to me that some people think that losing an election is reason for a revolution. Sour grapes to the extreme!

Monkey I've been telling you it's coming way before this election. I think you may be to young to understand why the people of this country are so up in arms. This government has exceeded the will of the people. Law abiding citizens continue to loose our freedoms and rights because of the actions of a few. Our taxes are wasted and this administration has divided the people by the workers vs the takers. The takers are winning. That's the only reason Obama got reelected. The takers outnumber the hard working taxpayers that don't want your government in our life's. You will wish you were armed

It's the same as a lot of laws. You have certain rights as a citizen but those rights can be delayed, dismissed or denied by whatever ideologue is in office. monky--what makes anyone think that because they got elected for four years, they get to change the country forever ?

Scally, you are spouting the party line that pits people against each other. The politicians of both parties have been exploiting any differences they can to show that the 2 parties are different as a way to get votes. If you believe that the country will fail if the other party gets into power then your party gets a confirmed voter. Unfortunately it also means that you get a disfunctional congress and and a population who are at each other's throats about every issue with no one willing to compromise.

50s4ever, first of all Obama has been elected for 8 years, not 4. Second, many presidents have changed the country forever-Lincoln, FDR, Kennedy, Reagan. You may not like the changes if the president is from the opposing party but that's the way it is. Any president who gets to nominate 2 or more Supreme Court justices changes the country forever.

Absolute no party line here. I develop my opinions based on logic experience and observation and I'm telling you it's gunna get ugly. This country and society can not possably continue to exist in its current state. It's unraveling piece by piece day by day. It's currently in ecceleration mode

Feb 7 2013 Post Journal Editorial is probably the most misguided and unintellegent piece of garbage the Post Journal has ever printed. Since when is the 2nd Ammendment about hunting? New Editor ? Maybe New Janitor would be more accurate. I want Ms. Herbst back.

Right, Scally, the end is near. You better get down in your bunker and fondle your guns until a drone comes and blows you to Kingdom Come. You make as much sense as the people who said the world would end when the Mayan calendar ran out or the bible thumper in California who predicted the end 3 times in 2011.

Obama had the audacity (nice way of saying it)to run for 8 yrs on his first campaign. I think he knew his party's relentless lies and attack on the opposition through his media (prostitutes) and having a built in race card would pull it off. Those heroes you mentioned were not as great as your history shows them, and I bet they'd like to have a do over.

50s4ever, where exactly did I say those presidents were my heroes? Reagan certainly wasn't. All I said was they changed America. I also remember Obama running for a second term. You are entitled to your own opinions but not your own facts.

Guess you weren't paying attention when Obama ran his campaign for his first election. He twice said the wanted 8 years. But, being a prog, you can make up your own facts.

I'm done. You can't debate with someone who makes up their "facts".
