Permit holders can also visit to print out a copy of the form, fill-it out and mail it or fax it in to the Erie County Clerk. Completed forms are to be submitted to: Erie County Clerk Chris Jacobs, c/o Pistol Permit Office, 92 Franklin Street Buffalo, NY 14202 or faxed to716/858-6550, Attn: Pistol Permit Office. “I encourage all remaining pistol permit holders who want assurance that their records will be kept private to complete and submit the form to my office,” added Jacobs.

The “Opt-Out” form is also readily available at the Pistol Permit Office located at 92 Franklin Street, Buffalo, NY 14202 and at each of the Erie County Auto Bureau Offices and Mobile Site locations.
