The Elite in New York Have Always Had Access

SayUncle notes that Goldman Sachs execs seem to be getting pistol permits in New York City. Good thing they are rich bank execs, because a New York City pistol permit costs 170 bucks every three years. Now, if they want a license to carry a gun, they have to be connected, but no doubt a wealthy bank exec will have no trouble. Ordinary Joes might have a lot more.

  1. The author of the Bloomberg article had some misunderstandings about guns and permits. I set her straight in a polite sort of way.

  2. Carl from Chicago says:

    It will be nice when an incorporation decision finally spreads NYCs system of discriminatory licensure wide open to court challenge.

  3. Rwilson452 says:

    I believe I heard that NYC is next on Gura’s list.

  4. Jacob says:

    No, the cost is $340 plus fingerprints and photos.

    Despite being in PRNJ, I’ll defer to NYC being the next recipient of a constitutional whupping; despite the absurd length of time, the paperwork to own is at least near to “shall issue”. (Bear is another thing, but one battle at a time)

  6. Stan says:

    I’m pretty sure those are just licenses to OWN a pistol. Carrying it would be right out of the question I believe.
