NY State firearms law history
I have a question.... the original Sullivan Act required a permit to possess a handgun, and another to carry one concealed. It appears that if you had the permit to possess, you could carry openly without a permit.
At what point in time did New York require a permit for all handgun carrying, either by providing a person needed a permit to carry in any way, or by outlawing open carry?
UPDATE: The Sullivan Law made it illegal to "to have or carry concealed upon his person" a pistol, and provided for permit to "have and carry concealed." It's possible this could be read as making it illegal to "have upon his person or carry concealed upon his person," and conversely making the permit one for carrying, but concealed only.
