New York Sheriff Tells Oath Keepers to Violate Gun Law, Throw Renewal Permit Apps ‘In the Garbage’

Snippet from article:
A New York state sheriff called on a group of residents to violate the state’s gun laws and refuse to renew their handgun permits.
Thomas Lorey, a sheriff in Fulton County, told a gathering of Oath Keepers that they would be receiving invitations to renew their handgun licenses early through an online program. The Oath Keepers is a network of current and former law enforcement officers across the United States who pledge to protect the US Constitution — including by refusing orders they believe to be unconstitutional.
“I’m asking everybody that gets those invitations to throw them in the garbage, because that’s where they belong,” Lorey said, in a statement that was filmed and shared on YouTube. “They go in the garbage because, for 100 years or more, since the inception of pistol permits, nobody’s ever been required to renew them. It’s a ridiculous way that’s going to cost you money at some point in your life, even when though they say it isn’t.”
