Fortunately, there is one sheriff who is not afraid to make a stand for the right to keep and bear arms.
Lorey is intending to uphold his oath against those Second Amendment hating politicians in the state capitol.
In a video posted on Friday, this is how Lorey opened his remarks to a small group of concerned citizens, “We’re starting this fight, this fight is going to be a long and difficult fight. The government and Andrew Cuomo are dragging us into a pit. These are the folks (present meeting attendees) that are going to drag us out of the pit because I think this war is going to last that long.”
“One of the things I want to talk about is the renewal of pistol permits,” the sheriff continues. “There is a lot of scuttlebutt going around about it and I want to set the record straight. Fulton County is one of the pilot counties…they are going to send out 500 invitations to my county and that’s all they are is invitations. The invitation is going to ask you if you would like to renew early…I’m asking everyone that gets those invitations to throw them in the garbage because that is where they belong.”
New York has two types of handgun permits. One type is a permit to carry, which is rarely approved. The second is a permit to possess a handgun. Regarding the permit to possess a handgun, the sheriff is telling his audience to allow their permit paperwork to expire.
“Don’t do it, let’s have everybody’s permit expire the same day and let them see what they are going to do with it,” he said.
