John Stossel Tried To Get A New York Gun Permit­–It. Turned Out Poorly

Image

John Stossel is an outspoken and unabashed libertarian. He’s a public figure on a major news network, where some people think his ideas about free markets and liberty should end with him being shot in the face. Hence, why he wants a gun permit for self-protection. The problem is that Mr. Stossel lives in New York, which is a bastion of anti-gun sentiment. He found that out quite explicitly when he tried to acquire a carry permit. First, the application is about 50 pages because the applicant must not only know their name, residence, lack of criminal history, etc.—but also know the definitions of other weapons.
(..edit...)
Stossel interviewed a military veteran, Robert Martinez, who was denied a permit, even though a man was beaten to death out front of his apartment complex. He said that the NYPD was rude; they had him waiting for over three hours, and denied his application. It’s not unheard of for this process to last up to a year. In Stossel’s case, it took him eight and a half months.

this is not new news, NYC has been denying 2nd amendment rights for decades, 30 years ago it took me about 9 months to obtain a restricted permit.

IIRC when I got mine back in the day (Monroe County / Rochester NY area) It was almost 18 months from the date I sent the complete application in, and it was around $150.

I was denied the first time for forgetting one stupid thing on the application. They are sticklers about that. Second time was fine.
