I’m a veteran with an honorable discharge. I’ve never been arrested or convicted of a crime, I’ve never been diagnosed as “crazy” or spent any time in the ha-ha hotel. But if I applied for a handgun carry permit, I’m sure I would be turned down. Only the well-connected or rich can get one in New York.
But the president, the mayor and the governor — all ardent anti-Second Amendment activists — don’t need one. They all have security details armed with submachine guns.
My life apparently isn’t worth as much.
