    12  his  or  her  license  to  include one or more such weapons or to cancel

     1  Suffolk  to  the  [licensing]  filing officer of that county, who shall,
     2  within ten days after such notification shall be received by him or her,
     3  give notice in writing of such change to the executive department, divi-
     4  sion of state police, at Albany.
     5    10.  License:  expiration,  certification and renewal. (a) Any license
     6  for gunsmith or dealer in firearms and, in the city  of  New  York,  any
     7  license  to  carry  or  possess a pistol or revolver, issued at any time
     8  pursuant to this section or prior to the first  day  of  July,  nineteen
     9  hundred  sixty-three  and not limited to expire on an earlier date fixed
    10  in the license, shall expire not more than three years after the date of
    11  issuance. In the  counties  of  Nassau,  Suffolk  and  Westchester,  any
    12  license  to  carry  or  possess a pistol or revolver, issued at any time
    13  pursuant to this section or prior to the first  day  of  July,  nineteen
    14  hundred  sixty-three  and not limited to expire on an earlier date fixed
    15  in the license, shall expire not more than five years after the date  of
    16  issuance;  however, in the county of Westchester, any such license shall
    17  be certified prior to the first day of April, two thousand,  in  accord-
    18  ance  with  a schedule to be contained in regulations promulgated by the
    19  commissioner of the division of criminal  justice  services,  and  every
    20  such  license  shall  be  recertified  every  five years thereafter. For
    21  purposes of this section certification  shall  mean  that  the  licensee
    22  shall  provide  to the licensing officer the following information only:
    23  current name, date of birth, current address, and the make, model, cali-
    24  ber and serial number of all firearms currently possessed. Such  certif-
    25  ication  information shall be filed by the licensing officer in the same
    26  manner as an amendment. Elsewhere than in the city of New York  and  the
    27  counties  of  Nassau,  Suffolk  and Westchester, any license to carry or
    28  possess a pistol or revolver,  issued  at  any  time  pursuant  to  this
    29  section  or prior to the first day of July, nineteen hundred sixty-three
    30  and not previously revoked or cancelled, shall be in  force  and  effect
    31  until  revoked  as herein provided. Any license not previously cancelled
    32  or revoked shall remain in full force and effect for thirty days  beyond
    33  the  stated  expiration date on such license. Any application to renew a
    34  license that has not previously expired, been revoked or cancelled shall
    35  thereby extend the term of the license until disposition of the applica-
    36  tion by the [licensing] filing officer. In the case  of  a  license  for
    37  gunsmith  or dealer in firearms, in counties having a population of less
    38  than two hundred  thousand  inhabitants,  photographs  and  fingerprints
    39  shall  be submitted on original applications and upon renewal thereafter
    40  only at six year intervals. Upon satisfactory  proof  that  a  currently
    41  valid  original  license  has  been despoiled, lost or otherwise removed
    42  from the possession of the licensee and upon application  containing  an
    43  additional  photograph  of  the licensee, the [licensing] filing officer
    44  shall issue a duplicate license.
    45    (b) All licensees shall be recertified to the division of state police
    46  every five years thereafter. Any license  issued  before  the  effective
    47  date  of  the  chapter  of the laws of two thousand thirteen which added
    48  this paragraph shall be recertified by the licensee on or before January
    49  thirty-first, two thousand eighteen, and not less than one year prior to
    50  such date, the state police shall send a notice to all  license  holders
    51  who  have not recertified by such time. Such recertification shall be in
    52  a form as approved by the superintendent of state  police,  which  shall
    53  request the license holder's name, date of birth, gender, race, residen-
    54  tial address, social security number, firearms possessed by such license
    55  holder,  email address at the option of the license holder and an affir-
    56  mation that such  license  holder  is  not  prohibited  from  possessing

        A. 5599                             3
 
     1  firearms.  The form may be in an electronic form if so designated by the
     2  superintendent of state police. Failure to  recertify  shall  act  as  a
     3  revocation  of  such license. If the New York state police discover as a
     4  result  of the recertification process that a licensee failed to provide
     5  a change of address, the New York state police  shall  not  require  the
     6  [licensing] filing officer to revoke such license.
     7    13.  Expenses.  The  expense of providing a [licensing] filing officer
     8  with blank applications, licenses and record books for carrying out  the
     9  provisions  of this section shall be a charge against the county, and in
    10  the city of New York against the city.
    11    14. Fees. In the city of New York and the county of Nassau, the annual
    12  license fee shall be twenty-five dollars for gunsmiths and fifty dollars
    13  for dealers in firearms. In such city, the city council and in the coun-
    14  ty of Nassau the Board of Supervisors shall fix the fee  to  be  charged
    15  for  a  license to carry or possess a pistol or revolver and provide for
    16  the disposition of such fees. Elsewhere in the  state,  the  [licensing]
    17  filing  officer  shall  collect  and  pay  into  the county treasury the
    18  following fees: for each license to carry or possess a pistol or  revol-
    19  ver,  not  less  than  three dollars nor more than ten dollars as may be
    20  determined by the legislative body of the  county;  for  each  amendment
    21  thereto,  three  dollars, and five dollars in the county of Suffolk; and
    22  for each license issued  to  a  gunsmith  or  dealer  in  firearms,  ten
    23  dollars.  The fee for a duplicate license shall be five dollars. The fee
    24  for processing  a  license  transfer  between  counties  shall  be  five
    25  dollars. The fee for processing a license or renewal thereof for a qual-
    26  ified retired police officer as defined under subdivision thirty-four of
    27  section 1.20 of the criminal procedure law, or a qualified retired sher-
    28  iff,  undersheriff, or deputy sheriff of the city of New York as defined

    32  twenty of section 2.10 of the criminal procedure  law,  or  a  qualified
    33  retired uniformed court officer in the unified court system, or a quali-
    34  fied  retired  court  clerk in the unified court system in the first and
    35  second judicial departments, as defined in paragraphs a and b of  subdi-
    36  vision  twenty-one  of  section  2.10 of the criminal procedure law or a
    37  retired correction officer as  defined  in  subdivision  twenty-five  of
    38  section  2.10 of the criminal procedure law shall be waived in all coun-
    39  ties throughout the state.
    40    § 3. This act shall take effect immediately.
