HANDGUN SAFETY CLASS
The Orange County Sheriff's department has now taken over.
In 2014 the Orange County Sheriff's Department started offering a three hour “safety course” of their own design and the Undersheriff is now in charge of deciding who else is allowed to be instructors. The Sheriff department's "approved instructors" are allowed to give a class but they must use the PowerPoint lesson plan that the Sheriff's department created without any changes and they must issue a Sheriff's department approves “Safety Class” certificate. THIS IS NOT AN NRA CLASS.
After January 1, 2015 all safety classes given for pistol applications in Orange County must comply with all of the new requirements that the Undersheriff has created. Only approved Orange County Sheriff’s Department “Safety Class” certificates will be accepted when applying for a pistol license in Orange County.
Because I object to the new system and how it was implemented and submitted a 6 page letter outlining my concerns to the Safety Committee of the Orange County Legislature, the Undersheriff has decided that I am not a team player and will not be allowed to be an "approved instructor" so I will no longer be able to offer the class that I used to offer.
I contend that the Sheriff’s Department has no legal or moral authority to take over the list or even require a safety class for any pistol license applicant to be issued a handgun license. The class that the Sheriff’s Department will not be accepted in any state that I know of, to meet the requirement of a safety class as part of getting an out of state license. Normally only an NRA class or a class given by an instructor approved by that state are accepted to meet that state’s requirements.
I will still offer NRA Pistol classes to people or groups who have a pistol license and want or need the NRA class. Please email to set up a class or for more information.
GUN CLASS IN YOUR HOUSE
FOR PEOPLE IN ULSTER, SULLIVAN AND OTHER COUNTIES
I will come to your house to give the class. If you have at least 2 people, (3 is better,) I will come to your house to give you the class. The Safety Class is good for Ulster, Sullivan, Westchester and other counties.
I have been forced to bring a lawsuit because NY Penal Law 265 and 400 do not give any government entity the authority to require a safety class, to certify instructors, to require that all instructors be NRA Instructors, to require that all instructors give only the Sheriff’s Department class and will not accept NRA classes and to only allow instructors to be from Orange, Sullivan and Ulster Counties, and to limit the total number of instructors to fifty.
Please contact me if you want to join the lawsuit. I am still working out the details with my lawyers but you can sign up with your name or you can sign up as a "John Doe" if you are afraid that the Sheriff's Department will take punitive action against you if your name is on the lawsuit. Remember that he did not put me on the list because I objected to the program. The Sheriff's Department also violated my rights to due process and the equal protection of the laws as guaranteed by the United States and New York State Constitutions.
At a private meeting that I had with the Undersheriff he told me that he had the authority to take over the whole process and only accept certificates from the Sheriff’s Department class. He also said that he wanted his program to be adapted across the state.
I will be working on a page on my website over the next week to put all of the information on line for those of you who want to see the details and sections of NY law. CLICK HERE FOR THE LAWSUIT PAGE
I am paying for this lawsuit by myself so far and I have spent several thousand dollars and expect to spend several thousand more. If I win the lawsuit I have asked the court to decide damages and all cost but until then I could use your help. I need and will accept donations and if I win and do more than cover my cost I will try to refund any amounts over $25 and any amounts less than that I will donate to any local, New York or national group that supports my lawsuit. I am not in this to make money from donations but just to cover as much as possible all of my direct and indirect cost.
Please donate at least $2 because of the transactions cost.
