Im looking to buy my first firearm, but i dont really know the laws surrounding NYS.
Can anyone help clarify some things? I dont ever want to have to discharge it outside of a range but if its necessary, my main concern is right now, as far as I know NYS is not a stand your ground state and I remember someone getting convicted of manslaughter a few years ago bc he shot an armed [or was he unarmed? i forget] home invader in the back as he was running away or possibly moving for cover, but backward.
My main concern is understanding self defense laws in the state, what to get, and recommendations if anyone here is in the long island area [if you dont want to comment locations just dm me recommendations]
— Im not a big AR fan tbh, but thats bc i just love wood stocks too much lol unfortunately the M1A is ungodly expensive compared to it. Is it true that you cant own an AR in NY unless youre military or law enforcement?
Also, how difficult is it to get a concealed carry pistol permit here bc i’ve heard its incredibly difficult but some people with no law enforcement connections have also told me that they just paid an extra fee and they got it with no problems.
