4. New York is a "may issue" state. ....

In such states the rich and privileged often find it far easier to get a concealed carry permit than the average Joe. It's even more difficult for the average Joe to get a carry permit in New York City which Jerome Hauer also has. Unfortunately it also appears that the rich and famous and influential can get away with unsafely handling their firearms and displaying them recklessly. as it looks unlikely that Hauer will be disciplined for his actions.

If I were at a meeting in Florida and whipped out my legally concealed handgun to use its laser as a pointer, I would not only get fired from my job but would also be arrested for brandishing a weapon. I would most likely lose my carry permit even I were a member of the elite. Hell, I could lose my license to carry by merely carrying it into my county courthouse.

Obviously Hauer doesn't understand the concept of muzzle discipline and that is a kind way to criticize his actions.

It appears Gov. Cuomo is a strong supporter of gun control laws unless it involves members of his administration. Why does this not surprise me?
