NY City Gun permits and the wealthy
The New York Post has an article on who's got NYC gun carrying permits. Needless to say, wealth and power help. On the list are billionaires Donald Trump and Ronald Lauder, plus several multimillionaires, actors Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel, shock jocks Howard Stern and Don Imus. Anti-gun activist Fernando Mateo has a permit to keep a handgun at home or in his business, as are judges, prosecutors, and high-profile attorneys.
All of whom undoubtedly are more vulnerable, less protected, and more at danger than some average citizen in a high-crime area... (Hat tip to Bruce Stern).
Curious how they overlooked Chucky Schumer. Isn't he rich and infamous enough?

We have a copy of the list. Neither Chuck Schumer nor his wife have a pistol license. That's a long running myth.
