“The Regional Gun Violence Research Consortium at the Rockefeller Institute of Government is launching the New York Firearm Storage Map — an interactive map to provide New Yorkers with over 180 locations for temporary, voluntary firearm storage. This tool provides secure options for gun owners to safely store their firearms outside of the home to reduce the risk that their gun may be misused or stolen. As outlined in the New York Governor’s 2020 annual policy agenda, the Consortium at the Rockefeller Institute partnered with the New York State Police and New York State Division of Criminal Justice Services (DCJS) to develop this online firearm storage map of law enforcement agencies (LEAs) and federally licensed firearm businesses (FFLs) that offer public, short-term storage.
Disclaimer: This map is up-to-date as of the date the survey results were compiled. However, this map does not represent ALL voluntary, temporary firearm storage options in New York; it reflects ONLY the agencies and businesses that responded affirmatively to the survey. We will continue to update the New York Firearm Storage Map as new entities complete the survey or update their survey submissions. If you are a law enforcement agency or federal firearms licensed businesses who is interested in participating, please complete this survey to be included in this resource. Locations listed on this map are willing to consider requests for temporary, voluntary firearm storage; however, each agency or business may decide to store or not to store a firearm on a case-by-case basis and may have their own storage policy or practices.”
