Westchester County, New York Proposing to Change Pistol Licensing Authority!

Friday, February 2, 2007

 

County Executive Andy Spano has proposed changing the pistol license authority in Westchester County from elected county judges to the un-elected police commissioner and requiring all pistol license holders to reapply for their licenses every five years, providing justification as to why they still need them.  A copy of the proposal is available at http://www.co.westchester.ny.us/currentnews/2007pr/statelegpackage.htm

Please contact your county legislators and State Representatives and let them know you oppose Spano's plans.  The deadline for them to act is February 12.  The next scheduled meeting of the Board of Legislators is Monday, February 12, at 10:00 a.m., in the Legislative Chambers, 8th floor of the Westchester County Office Building, 800 Michaelian Office Building, 148 Martine Avenue, White Plains.
