Important Notice Regarding New York Pistol Permit Re-Certification

If your New York State Pistol Permit was issued before January 15, 2013, as per the NY SAFE Act, you MUST re-certify to New York State Police prior to January 31, 2018. If the issue date of your permit is after January 15, 2013 you must re-certify five years from said date of issue.

 Even if you didn’t receive a letter you must re-certify.

Please visit: https://www.troopers.ny.gov/Firearms/pistol_revolver_license_recertification.php

There you can re-certify online, download the hard copy form, access some frequently asked questions and check the status of your re-certification.

You can re-certify online or in Paper form. To re-certify, the license holder must provide:

  • Some basic identifying information (name, address, pistol permit number, date of birth, ).
  • All handguns that they possess including handguns that are co-registered with another

If you wish to re-certify in paper format, we can provide you with a printout of your firearms information.

We strongly recommend that you complete the “opt out” section on the re-certification form. It is also a good time to check with us to make sure you have one on file here locally.

If the form is submitted electronically the permit holder will receive a receipt that can be printed out. If you choose to re-certify via the “hard copy” form, we strongly encourage you to mail the form to State Police using some trackable format (i.e. Certified Mail).

The responsibility of the permit holder will be fulfilled when the recertification form is submitted to the State Police. If you wish to check the status of your re-certification you may do so by visiting the website above.

According to the Law, the failure to re-certify within the prescribed period “shall act as a revocation of such license” which may result in the loss of all firearms including long arms.

Though you may disagree with re-certification, the best way to protect yourself legally is to just do it. The information that you are confirming and providing is information that the State Police and the Locality should already have.

If you have any questions, need a form, or any other information, please do not hesitate to visit our office or contact us and we will do our very best to assist you.

This is an extremely important issue. Please help us by sharing this information with  your fellow pistol permit holders throughout New York State!

PUTNAM COUNTY CLERK MICHAEL BARTOLOTTI AND COUNTY EXECUTIVE MARYELLEN ODELL BOOST ORGAN DONATION

PUTNAM COUNTY CLERK MICHAEL BARTOLOTTI AND COUNTY EXECUTIVE MARYELLEN ODELL BOOST ORGAN DONATION

For Release:  Immediate (April 19, 2017)

Contact:  Michael C. Bartlotti, 845-808-1142, Extension 49301

Putnam County Clerk Michael C. Bartolotti and County Executive MaryEllen Odell will be partnering with the New York Alliance for Donation (NYAD) to promote organ, eye and tissue donation in Putnam County.  This program is responsible for saving and improving the lives of thousands of New Yorkers in dire need of transplants.

“April is National Donate Life month, and we are delighted to continue working with NYAD on a countywide basis to encourage residents to become an organ or tissue donor.”  Mr. Bartolotti said, “Putnam County is proud to be one of the many counties throughout the state participating in this important program and I am pleased to partner with County Executive Odell in bringing this program to the attention of our residents.”

There are over 19 million New Yorkers; yet only 28% of adults in New York State are registered donors, compared to the national average of more than 50%.  In New York alone, the number of men, women and children waiting for a transplant is over 10,000.  While 37% of Putnam County residents are registered donors, we believe we can do better!

Mr. Bartolotti will be placing brochures and posters in the Putnam County DMV alerting customers of the donor crisis and asking them to enroll on the Life Registry.  Interested customers can also enroll by checking off the organ donor box on any license or non-driver ID card transaction (MV-44).

“21 people die every day due to the lack of available organs.  98% of New Yorkers enroll in the New York State Donate Life Registry through local DMV offices which makes our efforts on this behalf even more important.”  County Executive Odell said, “We can make a significant difference in increasing the numbers of donors through our constant contact with residents, and I am happy to work alongside County Clerk Bartolotti and NYAD to make their goal of a significantly increased registry a reality.”
