Paying Bribes to Get Your
Rights Back in New York City

By Rob Morse. April 23rd, 2016

It isn't what you know that counts in New York City. It is who you know, and how much you pay them, that counts. Here is another example. It takes a long time for ordinary honest citizens to get a permit to own a gun in New York City. It is impossible for ordinary citizens to get a license to carry a concealed firearm in public. Being New York City, that rule has exceptions. You can get a carry permit if you make large political donations or are a major celebrity. Those exceptions almost don't matter since most of these people rent their own armed security details. Lesser human beings like us have to do without self-protection .. or we have to pay off the police to get a permit. That isn't an accident.

Let's put the latest events in context. Murder, rape and other violent crimes are increasing in New York City. In this recent case, ordinary citizens paid a man with political connections so the ordinary citizens could get firearms ownership and concealed carry permits. What these New York citizens wanted was what we all want, and what most of us in the rest of the United States already have. These citizens wanted the right to keep and bear arms to protect themselves, to protect their family, and to protect their co-workers. That takes a permit application and a couple of dollars in most states. In New York City, it takes a couple months and a pocket full of money for bribes.

How did this happen.. again? New York has a may-issue firearms permit scheme. That means it is up to New York City law enforcement to issue a permit to carry.. or not. .....

It's a sad fact that the few states or cities that still have "may-issue", almost all show the same lack of respect for the law abiding citizen's need to have self protection. Seemingly, all too often if a person is 'well connected' and possibly wealthy as well, a permit may be granted but if just a regular Joe - well, probably outa luck! For the most part it appears that instances of extreme over control of CCW permiting coincide within areas of the highest crime rates. Go figure.
