As part of the newly-enacted NY SAFE Act, gun owners can opt-out of having their information available publicly.
According to Genesee County Clerk Don Read, though, there are no concrete plans for the opt-out process at this point, even though Erie County will likely have forms available as early as Feb. 15. Erie County has already set up a website to obtain a form through email.
Read said this morning he hadn’t received any specific instructions from the state and doesn’t know at this time if the opt-out will be performed through the county or the state.
In Erie County, permit holders who do not want their information made public will have 60 days after Feb. 15 to submit their opt-out form to their county clerk's office.
More information for Genesee County gun owners hoping to enter the registry should be available soon, Read says.
