Earlier this week, Governor David Paterson (D) introduced a proposal that would set up a process by which pistol license holders would be “recertified” every five years by having a NICS check performed.
Under the plan, the issuing authority would simply run the check at the time of renewal or, in the case of those with lifetime licenses, every five years. Still under analysis is another provision that would require any employee of a licensed firearm dealer or gunsmith undergo a background check as a condition of employment.
No action is needed at this time and we will be sure to inform you when we have completed our analysis. Please continue checking your email and www.NRAILA.org for updates on this issue.
