Pistol Permit "Opt-Out" Forms Available for Pick-up

February 16, 2013 Updated Feb 16, 2013 at 9:49 AM EDT

Erie County, NY – In an effort to quickly distribute the newly released “Opt-Out” form Erie County Clerk Jacobs will open the Northtown Auto Bureau on Saturday from 9:00am-12pm so that any pistol permit holders, especially those who are not able to access the form on-line, can obtain it conveniently.

“I want to ensure that all pistol permit holders have several options in which to get hold of this form and as quickly as possible,” said Clerk Jacobs. “The law provides 60-days for permit holders to exercise this “opt-out” provision before someone can make a request for pistol records. So we are encouraging pistol permit holders who want assurance that their records will be kept private to obtain and complete the form immediately.”
