Well, I've done it. After finding out this morning that my NYS Pistol License has been re-assigned to a different Judge, I carefully composed a letter asking that my license be converted to an unrestricted (CCW) license.
I'm 90% sure I'll be denied because in my county, you need to "prove need." I don't happen to have a "need" just a "want" and a right as a US citizen. (Which don't really seem to matter around here..)
Sooooo..I'll sit on pins and needles until I hear back from him. He can't be any less 2A friendly than my issuing judge. I figure, all he can do is deny me, then I'm right back to where I am today. BUT, in the off chance he goes ahead with it, it will be a major victory.
We'll see. I'm not hopeful that I'll get my CCW granted, but no guts, no glory, right? Isn't it funny how we live in the same country, but have different rights?
