Good afternoon to all County Clerks. Following up with a quick note to everyone regarding our meeting this morning at the State Police Headquarters in Albany. Present for the meeting from our Association were Paul, Brad, Holly, Michael, myself, and Patrick Cummings. Representatives from the Governors Counsel and State Police were also present. The meeting was mostly positive overall with our group doing a great job of addressing the serious matters and concerns of the law.
At this point, there was nothing we could gather from the meeting that would indicate there will be any delay or change in the law. However, there is no doubt that our efforts are leading to a more defined, softer posture by the State Police as now indicated by the very recent change to the FAQ's now posted on the State Police Website. I have attached the link below and encourage everyone to read each point. You will see the goal of compliance rather than one of "gotcha". This theme was emphasized over and over by their group throughout the meeting. https://troopers.ny.gov/FAQs/Firearms/Recertification/ That is a quick summary for now.
Best Regards, Craig A. Hayner Saratoga County Clerk
