The deadline to re-certify your pistol permit is fast approaching in New York

11.22.17 | Dee Haley

New York state residents with pistol permits issued prior to 2013 will soon have to re-certify.

State police are reminding pistol permit holders of the fast approaching January 31st deadline to re-up licenses with the state as a required part of the SAFE Act, the state's 2013 gun-control measure.

State law requires permit holders to file with the state every five years. If a permit holder misses the deadline, the license is automatically revoked.
