Son of a Gun: More Celebrities Than Ever Are Carrying Firearms (New York)
People ^ | 9-27-10 | Tim Nudd

They might not be dangerous, but they're armed.

Seeking an added layer of protection, more high-profile celebrities are seeking permits to carry guns in New York City, according to New York's Daily News.

Among the big names licensed to pack heat: Marc Anthony, Robert De Niro, Donald Trump, and his son, Donald Jr., Mets third baseman David Wright, and Martha Stewart's daughter, radio host Alexis Stewart.

Anthony, 42, has a special permit that allows him to carry a loaded weapon in the city, and has a similar permit for Nassau County, where he and Jennifer Lopez have a $2 million home in Brookville.

It’s not just a role, it’s a way of life.

Am I wrong to assume that the average New Yorker cannot do this?

Hopefully (the NRA maybe) will this be challenged now that it’s brought to light. Not because they can ‘carry’, but because I cannot.

Since when is Marc Anthony’s life worth more than the average szchlub? If this isn’t a 14th amendment issue
I don’t know what is.

Don Imus has been carrying a gun in New York City for years. In fact, I remember reading somewhere that he met his wife for the first time when he saw her getting mugged in the city and used his gun to chase the mutant away.

As long as some punk cop, or government thug can carry a firearm and I can not, the existance of equal protection under the US constitution is simply not there.

That’s OK...after all, they’re IMPORTANT! But “little people” had better not apply for CC permits in Bloomberg’s paradise!!

The article is written in a way that the reader is pushed from the question ; “Wait a sec... Why are there elites who can do more than anyone else ?”

How come they can get a permit in places where “normal” people like us cannot? Are their lives more important than ours? Makes you wonder.

No, that’s not it. They just have more money and clout than you or I.

Outside of NYC is different. Both Mrs. panax and I can carry concealed in every county in the state, except New York City.

This won’t make Rosie O’Donnell very happy.

But then again, when is she ever?

Are you sure about Long Island?

I’m a resident of Suffolk County, and I can’t just go and get a carry permit. Well...I COULD get one, if I get a “target shooting” permit, which would allow me to carry on my way to and from a pistol range. And ONLY to and from the range. I can get a household one, or a business one, but as far as I know, I am unable to get a regular old CARRY permit, for personal protection.

Unless something has changed in the last few years, I’m not sure you WOULD be able to carry here on the Island. Then again, perhaps you are grandfathered in? Suffolk county USED to issue them, but things changed a while back.

Regards,

PS: If I’m wrong on this, I do hope someone will tell me. I’d love to be able to get a permit, if it’s possible.

Nothing new about this. Even DC will accommodate the rich and famous. Take a look at what jumped off the screen during the late Senator Kennedy’s funeral extravaganza in Washington. How many of us would have been allowed to walk around unquestioned by the cops with a bulge like this on our hip?

Son of a Gun: More Celebrities Than Ever Are Carrying Firearms (New York)

Well, Reagan packed a .38 cal pistol after being threatened by (film)
union thugs.

I wonder how many of these current celebrities know they are simply
following in Ronald Reagan’s steps?
More than likely NONE.

Maybe I’m wrong, but on the back of my license it says:

1. It is revocable at any time.

2. If issued outside of New York City, not valid to carry a weapon in New York City unless approved by the police commissioner of that city.

Not sure about Long Island. Is that in NY? Just kidding. Seriously though, do you have to go through NYC to get out to the Island? That might be the issue because you couldn’t carry while in the city limits even though you’re just passing through. Sort of like being “land-locked”.

I’ll call our pistol clerk and get back to you shortly.

Just got off the phone with our pistol clerk. She says she is not aware of any restrictions for Suffolk County. And that my permit allows me to carry concealed statewide except the 5 burroughs.

She suggested that you call your pistol clerk. Good luck on getting your permit! Let us know.

Isn't it great to be part of the Elite of society?

You can defend yourself, while the great unwashed are denied that basic human right.

I believe the founding fathers warned us of this in Federalist No. 39 Conformity of the Plan to Republican Principles

“It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion, or a favored class of it; otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans, and claim for their government the honorable title of republic. “

Thanks for the update, panaxanax. In order for me to get anywhere north of the City, yes, I would have to pass through the 5 boroughs. (Unless I took a boat.)

I’ll double check down here, and if I remember to do so, I’ll let you know what they tell me.

Take care,
