NO SUCH THING AS A 'PERSONAL CONCEALED CARRY LICENSE' IN NYC

New York City does not recognize a "personal" concealed carry, unless you are Donald Trump, or Howard Stern. In other words, you are a highly visible, high profile person.  In order for a non-celebrity/high profile person to qualify for a concealed carry within NYC, one must establish "proper cause." In general, this means you must have a business need to carry a concealed handgun.

*********************************************************

John S. Chambers, Esquire, a former New York City prosecutor, has been practicing law before the New York City Police Department, Pistol License Division, since 1986.

Mr. Chambers specializes in all phases of pistol licensing from the initial application through the challenging of a final agency action in New York State Supreme Court, and into the appeals process in the Appellate Division, and Court of Appeals.

Having argued at ALL levels of the New York Court system, including the highest Court, the New York State Court of Appeals, located in Albany, Mr. Chambers is a highly experienced litigator.

No other lawyer who claims to be a "pistol licensing" attorney has had as much experience in the realm of licensing and litigation, as has Mr. Chambers.

Before specializing in the field of firearms licensing, Mr. Chambers was a New York City assistant district attorney. Both as a prosecuting attorney, and for a short duration as a defense attorney, in his early career, he tried felony and misdemeanor cases, including jury trials, and homicides.

While his practice before the Pistol License Division began in 1986, he did not commence ANY litigation in connection with the denial of a pistol license, or a revocation thereof, against the NYPD until 1993.

During the years 1986-1993, the License Division operated in a fair and equitable manner. During this period, the were clear "standards" by which this law firm could measure the likelihood of an applicant's (or licensee's) success. The gaps in the New York State handgun licensing statute were filled in, at least during this time period, by internal policies which were both predictable, and reasonable.

Since then, the entire process has become more and more arbitrary, leaving the licensee and applicant without much guidance.

In Mr. Chambers' very first lawsuit against the Police Department in 1993, (before 1993, lawsuits were not necessary against the Pistol License Division, as the agency acted reasonably, and without arbitrariness) he challenged the Pistol License Division's denial of a concealed handgun license to a 24 hour gas station owner.

The Pistol License Division erroneously claimed that 1) the applicant failed to distinguish himself from countless others in every conceivable occupation without the benefit of a concealed handgun license, and  2) there was already one carry license issued to the business.

Almost immediately after Mr. Chambers commenced an Article 78 lawsuit, and his law firm's litigation papers were filed in New York State Supreme Court, the case was swiftly settled by the attorneys for the City of New York and the Police Commissioner, and the applicant was immediately issued a second N.Y.C. concealed handgun license for his business enterprise (his partner/brother held the other one).

Since then, Mr. Chambers has assisted thousands of individuals who have faced issues relating to their firearms licenses, or in connection with their firearms license applications. His reputation speaks for itself, as does his record.


 


The Handgun Licensing Process in NYC is a Complex Maze
 
The NYC handgun license application looks deceptively simple.  However, in reality, both the application, and the process itself can be daunting and tantamount to a mine field; not surprising, as the government's agenda quite often seems to be to dissuade and discourage you. Consequently, if you are serious about obtaining a handgun license or a rifle/shotgun permit in a New York City, you owe it to yourself to consider hiring an expert attorney in the field.
