lesson. No guns for cops, politicans and the rich, they'll think twice before making it super hard for normal people. which is impossible to get a ccw for normal people. my evidence is the news links below.
MEN and women. Democrats and Republicans. Doctors, lawyers, merchants and moguls. A remarkable, if relatively small, cross-section of New Yorkers legally own handguns, according to public records obtained by The New York Times.
Among the more than 37,000 people licensed to have a handgun in the city are dozens of boldface names and public figures: prominent business leaders, elected officials, celebrities, journalists, judges and lawyers.
Some expressed pride in their gun ownership, like the renowned divorce lawyer Raoul Felder, who readily posed with his .38-caliber Smith & Wesson. Others, including David Breitbart, Yetta Kurland and Walter Mack, all well-known lawyers, were irked to learn they would be included in an article based on the public records. And there were a few conflicted souls, like Alexis Stewart, co-host of “Whatever With Alexis and Jennifer” on SiriusXM radio and the Hallmark Channel.
“I don’t believe people should be allowed to have guns in America,” Ms. Stewart, daughter of Martha, said in an interview, explaining that she bought a .357 Magnum after 9/11 — but would be happy to give it up if handguns were banned. “Having a swimming pool is way more dangerous than having a gun,” she added.
Schumer himself is reported to possess a New York concealed handgun permit, and both U.S. Senators regularly employed armed guards for their personal protection.
Just because a politician recognizes that being armed makes THEM safer, doesn’t mean they support YOUR right to keep and bear arms. They think they’re different than you and me, that because of their title they’re entitled to MORE rights than we are.

Billionaire mogul Stewart Rahr, banned from Nobu, allegedly pulled gun on Trump Tower elevator operator - NYPOST.com
This guy really pushed his buttons.
An elevator operator at Trump Tower claims a billionaire office tenant threatened him with a revolver after the employee refused to wait around to take him down to the lobby.
Stewart Rahr, who sold his drugstore-distribution company for $1.3 billion in 2010, told The Post he was with Sen. Charles Schumer outside the mogul’s 24th-floor headquarters on Nov. 1 when “I told the guy, ‘I’m in a hurry. I’ll be back in 30 seconds.’ ”
But the elevator man already had a passenger and shut the door.
Rahr, a pal of Donald Trump and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, said he later tracked down the employee and chewed him out.
The worker, Rahr said, accused him of going ballistic and drawing his revolver.
