I've lived in Louisiana for the last 15 years,and enjoy its CCW permit as well as Florida and New Hampshire non-residents' permits. I am a native of Chemung County in NY and may very well find myself back there due to my Mother's health.
I know these permits don't mean squat there and it is going to be a real shock for me if I have to go back as far as carrying. Here, I often open carry-banks, Walmart, buying liquor at the corner mini-mart. How can one go from this to that? My drivers' licence is good in every state, why not my permit?
I've read through these NY posts, but do you have to obtain a permit in the county you live in? Is it only good for your county? Can you go to an 'easier' county to get it? We still have a place on Keuka Lake(I think Wayne County) for a different mailing address. Is a permit from upstate good in NYC? I looked at Steuben and Chemung county websites and not even a mention of how to get permits. Are they the issuing authority?
Ah, geez....I'm getting depressed.
