They issued the following statement:
“We want to make it 100% clear that this ruling did NOT invalidate conceal carry permits in New York, and New York is NOT an open carry state.”
“The Supreme Court decision will impact some pistol permits, however, we must wait for the licensing officers to develop those processes. All current applications are in good standing. We encourage people to sign-up to receive email updates from the County Clerk’s Office as we continue to receive guidance from New York State Police and Licensing Officers.” according to County Clerk Jamie Romeo.
“With the Supreme Court’s Ruling on Thursday striking down New York’s proper-cause requirement there have been some misconceptions circulating in the public that are important to address,” said Monroe County District Attorney Sandra Doorley.
“The ruling did not invalidate concealed carry, New York did not become an open carry State. It is important that licensed gun owners know the facts to prevent a situation where they might unknowingly break the law and face possible consequences.”
“We understand this ruling has caused uncertainty for many local residents, and we will diligently provide further clarification as we work with our government partners to understand the full implications of this ruling.”
