  Section  1.  Subdivision  10  of  section  400.00 of the penal law, as
amended by chapter 1 of the laws of 2013, is amended to read as follows:
  10. License: expiration, certification and renewal.  (a)  Any  license
for  gunsmith  or  dealer  in firearms and, in the city of New York, any
license to carry or possess a pistol or revolver,  issued  at  any  time
pursuant  to  this  section  or prior to the first day of July, nineteen
hundred sixty-three and not limited to expire on an earlier  date  fixed
in the license, shall expire not more than three years after the date of
issuance.  In  the  counties  of  Nassau,  Suffolk  and Westchester, any
license to carry or possess a pistol or revolver,  issued  at  any  time
pursuant  to  this  section  or prior to the first day of July, nineteen
hundred sixty-three and not limited to expire on an earlier  date  fixed
in  the license, shall expire not more than five years after the date of
issuance; however, in the county of Westchester, any such license  shall
be  certified  prior to the first day of April, two thousand, in accord-
ance with a schedule to be contained in regulations promulgated  by  the
commissioner  of  the  division  of criminal justice services, and every
such license shall be  recertified  every  five  years  thereafter.  For
purposes  of  this  section  certification  shall mean that the licensee
shall provide to the licensing officer the following  information  only:
current name, date of birth, current address, and the make, model, cali-
ber  and serial number of all firearms currently possessed. Such certif-
ication information shall be filed by the licensing officer in the  same
manner  as  an amendment. Elsewhere than in the city of New York and the
counties of Nassau, Suffolk and Westchester, any  license  to  carry  or
possess  a  pistol  or  revolver,  issued  at  any time pursuant to this
section or prior to the first day of July, nineteen hundred  sixty-three
and  not  previously  revoked or cancelled, shall be in force and effect
