Pistol permit resolution
Wednesday, February 7, 2018 - 10:41 am

I fully support and applaud the St. Lawrence County Board of Legislators resolution to remove the duties of issuance of pistol permits from the St. Lawrence County court. This should also be a call for our state legislature to follow suit with crafting legislation to bring much-needed uniformity in pistol licensing statewide. While not mentioned, I'm hoping your usage of "chief law enforcement officer" for issuance rightfully points to your county sheriff, leaving only the matter of revocation to the DA's office in concert with the sheriff. In this, we may finally bring needed due process to the system.
