No.A license is required to possess a handgun for any purpose. The Commissioner of the New York City Police Department is the issuing authority for handgun licenses. Unless indicated otherwise, such licenses and permits shall expire on the first day of the second January after the date of issuance. Every license to carry or possess a pistol or revolver in the city may be issued for a term of no less than one year or more than three years. There are different handgun licenses with different privileges granted under each. A license for a handgun shall be issued as a:• possession license for in a dwelling by a householder or in a place of business by a merchant or storekeeper;• have and carry concealed for employment purposes;• have and carry concealed, without regard to employment or place of possession;• have, possess, collect and carry antique pistols.
