Not only does Schumer carry a handgun, the New York City Police Department also provides armed escorts for the good senator. In fact, the Government Accounting Office -- the investigative arm of the US Congress -- slammed Schumer's use of police resources for personal protection. It's clear that Schumer believes he's special. He wishes to ban private citizens' ownership of firearms, while he enjoys layers of protection.
"No wonder Chuckie Schumer shoots his mouth off so much - he's able to protect himself," says a 25-year police veteran.
a check of Pistol License records shows that Senator Schumer possesses
an "unrestricted" pistol permit, a rarity in New York City. Licenses are
distributed in different categories in the Big Apple: Target Permits
allow only use of a firearm at a licensed firing range; Premises Permits
allow weapons to be kept in a home or apartment; Restricted Permits
allow the gunowner to carry their firearms concealed but only within the
purview of their job (security, jewelers, armored car guards, etc.). So
it's evident that Senator Schumer has two sets of rules -- one for
Americans and one for himself.
So, he and Feinstein and Boxer and the others: not only do they have the permits they think the commoners should be denied, they also demand special treatment from the police. For that matter, I wonder how many private armed security people they have around, the way Nanny Bloomberg does?
