NY Sheriffs Association


Erie County Sheriff Tim Howard is featured in a national video promoting firearms safety. The National Shooting Sports Foundation interviewed Sheriff Howard this past summer and shared his thoughts on gun locks, gun safety and responsibility. According to Sheriff Howard, 99% of gun-related accidents are preventable.

Sheriff Howard said that, as in most counties, pistol permit applications in Erie County have been  sharply on the rise and his staff that handle the  applications is very busy on a daily basis.
