Becoming a responsible citizen and firearm owner depends on clearly understanding the gun rights and state laws that apply to you. New York is one of America’s most densely populated states, with over 19 million people, yet only 1% of them are licensed to concealed carry (CC). This equates to around 196,000 licenses issued as of August 2021.
Understanding reciprocity – how your gun rights translate across state lines – is essential. New York has reciprocity agreements with 26 states but doesn’t recognize permits or licenses from any other state. The minimum age to concealed carry in New York is 21 (or any age for honorably discharged military), and there’s a five-year recertification qualification to remain in possession of a license.
Those interested in obtaining a concealed carry license need an education partner they can trust. Concealed Coalition has trained over a million U.S. citizens on how to carry their weapons safely and effectively. Contact us to find online or local training to get your CC license.
