Understanding the gun rights laws in New York

It can be hard to fully understand the details of gun laws throughout the state of New York. Here are a few facts to know:

  • A pistol license and background check are required to possess a handgun in New York State. No license is needed to buy a rifle or shotgun, except in New York City, though a background check is conducted.
  • New York is one of a small number of states where local governments can enact legislation that varies from state law.
  • Starting on March 15, 2013, all private handgun, rifle or shotgun sales or transfers (with the exception of those sales or transfers to and between certain family members) will require a background check of the buyer.
  • If your permit was issued before January 15, 2013, the deadline to submit your re-certification is January 31, 2018. If your permit was issued on or after January 15, 2013, the deadline to re-certify is five years after the date the permit was issued. As a permit holder, it is your responsibility to re-certify your permit whether you receive a notification letter or not.
