when I first got my permit in Erie county (over 20 years ago now- since moved and transferred permit to another less restrictive county) a form letter was sent with the permit that said something to the effect of it is not "good practice" to carry where alcohol is served, at church, in sports stadiums etc. None of this is state law but as we know every jurisdiction puts its spin on permit "rules". Further even things that may not be "law" but are the opinion of the appointed royalty that issues permits can get you in trouble and get your permit suspended/revoked.
I gave an NRA basic pistol course to a fellow that got his permit in Niagara County and he asked me about this. I stated that to my knowledge in NY you could carry in bars. He showed me on his Niagara County permit application that it did state that carrying in a bar was prohibited....Crazy State....each County can make their own laws.
"You will fight the way you train"
Is there a guide/list/copy of the legal verbiage regarding where one CANNOT carry in NYS (assuming you have a full carry permit)? E.g. no federal buildings/post offices, schools, etc? Specifically, I wanted to know about state and local parks (excluding NYC, of course).
My take on this is the bar carry is not a state law, but the judge in the county can say its not acceptable and if you are caught i would think he may take the permit. local parks depend on the county/city, some allow it and some dont, again i dont see this in the nys law. State parks say no firearms and again this is a regulation not a state law, but could lead to your permit being revoked, if i am wrong on any of this please correct me .
According to the State Parks Police, it is a law that you cannot carry in a State Park (including the Erie Canal).
There are federal, state, and local laws regarding no carry zones. As a result, there is no hard list of places you can, and cant carry unfortunately. You learn through research. Best bet is if you aren't sure, dont carry.
One thing that I still cant find and answer to is if "No Firearms," and "No Carry," signs have force of law. That is, if you see it and disobey it, is it actually a crime. It could potentially be trespass which could be aggravated by the firearm although I have never heard of that happening.
