NYC firearm permits
An interesting article. 37,000 permits of one or another type, about half of them to security guards or retired LEOs, most of the remainder only allowing possession but not carry. Only a little over 2,000 full carry licenses.
Mayor says that for the last "you should have to really show that your life is in danger, and that having a gun will protect you, will improve the chances of you surviving.”
Curiously, the last include a fair number of actors, celebrities, and politicians. I wonder why Donald Trump, Robert DeNiro, Tommy Mottola, and Don Imus' lives are in danger to a greater degree than anyone else's.
