February is nearly over and the first two months of 2024 are already in the books. If you are a pistol permit holder in Erie County, there is some good news. If you need to add guns to your permit, or change details, there is a convenient option.

Erie County Clerk, Mickey Kearns has announced that the Elma office is open various times per week for those who need to do certain updates on their permit.

Here in New York State, the laws regarding firearms, and specifically handguns, now require action for renewal.

But as part of the handgun laws and regulations, those who have a pistol permit are required to renew their registration with the state every few years as described and outlined by The New York State Police on X.

To help transition from the five-year recertification requirement to the new three-year requirement, anyone who had a concealed carry permit issued before September 1, 2020, will have until August 31, 2023, to recertify. In addition, those individuals who were issued a concealed carry permit or recertified after September 1, 2020, will not become due to recertify under the new law before August 31, 2023, and may therefore wait to recertify until the third year after permit issuance or their last recertification.
