A right delayed

Is a right denied:

Residents of Onondaga County who want a pistol permit will have to wait a year and a half or more before it’s approved, due to a shortage of personnel and an increased demand for firearms.

    Maybe some volunteers could get it done faster.

    I thought i had it bad in Maryland where the 1 week wait has extended to 4.

    Interesting comparison. Try that with voter registration or school integration, and you’d be in for 50 years of federal supervision. Hmm.

    On the other hand, who wants to do NICS at the DMV? That’s what you’d call a chilling effect in itself.

    I sure hope you guys are paying attention,’cause this is what is going to happen when “enhanced universal background checks” go through.

    The enhanced portion of those checks will (I bet you anything) entail a “thorough” check of all possible databases to ensure you are neither a criminal or crazy. That kind of check will take time and effort. Choke the funding to the check system, reduce the personnel, and(voila) you now have a six- to 12-month wait for EACH firearms purchase. With no alternatives.

    This is why I say that we cannot allow ANYTHING to come through the Congress: the anti-gunners are applying the “Anaconda strategy”. With each breath out, they are squeezing juuuuust a bit more…’til they break us completely.

    It’s like this all over NY. Demand for licenses is going through the roof.

    To be fair, if the delay is new, due to a surge post-Cuomo, it is not unreasonable that they might have to ramp up, people to man those jobs don’t spring out of thin air. No need to start pulling out “a right delayed…” a week after the rush starts.

    That said, his response is BS. He knows state law requires no more than 6 months, so he has no legal or ethical excuse to say “Sorry, you’re screwed.” and wash his hands of responsibility.

    The -first- words out of his mouth should have been, “I’m sorry for this temporary backlog due to increased demand. I will be immediately shifting resources as best I can to meet the demand and will be applying to the County for more funds to hire more staff or pay more overtime. Please call on your local, county, and state representatives to help us serve you properly under state law.”

  9. Matthew Carberry Says:

    To extend my remarks, remember that no one knew Cuomo was going to pass this bill the way he did, even the people who support it were caught flat-footed.

    The Sheriffs had no warning of his action and no real reason to suspect the surge that would result.

    How is it a ‘right’, if you must ask permission?
    Inquiring minds want to know…

    This is actually good. It is the breaking of an inequitable situation. As this rights movement (2A) continues to mature, it is more and more resembling the prior successful Civil Rights movement of the past. The same tools are working slowly and the anti-rights side is fighting a blustering, draconian holding action. in the end, they will be treated just the same as the bigots of the past. Yes these people ARE bigots.

    Yes, a right delayed is a right Infringed.

    There is no non-evil reason to deny or delay the right or the means of self-defense.
