Records check update

It is my understanding that the NYS Health Department has hired 2-3 people to process the backlog of records checks for pistol license applicants.  I don’t have a number, but it has to be in the thousands of applications going back to at least March.

  1. Markie Marxist sez: “Ha! Ha! Private gun owners are guilty until proven innocent! And we’re in no hurry to do that! What a bunch of rubes! They allow themselves to be presumed insane, until they’re proven not to be! Is there anything that we can’t con private gun owners into accepting? I can hear the conversation now:

    “Oh, yeah! We have to check you out fist before you can get a gun! You might be crazy!”

    “I might be crazy? Oh, okay, go ahead and check me out. I wouldn’t want anyone to get a gun if they were crazy.”

    “Well, the criminally insane can get one on the street in about five minutes, but for a law-abiding citizen like you, it’ll take about a year or so.”

    “Isn’t that kind of slow?”

    “We’re doing all the checks on an emergency, rush priority basis, that’s why it’s only taking about a year.”

    “Oh, rush priority, huh? Oh, okay, that’s good. I’m glad you folks are working as fast as you can on it. I wouldn’t want to be delayed unnecessarily.”
