No eq­uity in is­suance of pis­tol per­mits

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Ed­i­tor, In May, my daugh­ter and her hus­band both ap­plied to the Ul­ster County Sher­iff’s Of­fice for their hand­gun per­mits.

In about 30 days, my sonin-law re­ceived a let­ter that the per­mit was granted and that he would re­ceive more in­for­ma­tion soon. He was is­sued a per­mit with no re­stric­tions.

My daugh­ter had to ap­pear in front of a judge in June and was granted a per­mit with re­stric­tions, but, to date, has yet to re­ceive her per­mit. She has called the Sher­iff’s Of­fice. She was told it was prob­a­bly just sit­ting on the judge’s desk where it even­tu­ally would be signed and sent out.

I feel this is wrong. Two peo­ple with no crim­i­nal his­tory should never be treated so dif­fer­ently.

I would love feed­back on this is­sue. Any­one else hav­ing this prob­lem? Maria Wal­ter Lake Ka­trine
