There are counties in New York that hand out an unrestricted carry permit first try no problem. For the rest of us, we are given a restricted pistol permit. We are having the possibility of protecting ourselves or our loved ones if ever put in a terrible situation restricted to dwelling and sportsman, maybe less. I’m sure there are people out there that just got their pistol permit to shoot for fun, but I can say with confidence that the majority of people went through the process to have that ability. To be able to protect themselves, their loved ones, or a total stranger in need of help. Why restrict to dwelling and sportsman? What if someone thinks something is sporting and the county doesn’t. Risking our permit, our guns, a possible charge because someone may think a different way.

Remove the restrictions from pistol permits. Allow the law abiding citizens the ability to carry going to the atm, to the store, walking home in a not so good neighborhood. As pistol permit holders, we have all gone through our counties respective applications. Been photographed, finger printed, taken a class, paid our money, gotten personal and employer references. Passed the back round check and even opened sealed files. We have shown we will follow the process and the rules on how to obtain our permit. We are turned down because we don’t live one county over. I respect everyones beliefs on guns and if they don’t want them and don’t like them, I believe that’s their right. But our beliefs shouldn’t be shadowed by that and restricted.

My name is Keith Baker. I am from Oswego county. I went through the process to try and receive my unrestricted carry permit. While I am grateful to have received a permit and have what I do, I made this petition to find out how many people have had the same thing happen to them and feel the same way that I do. To try and make a difference with everyone showing how they feel at the same time.
