Why Gun Control Nuts Prefer Discretionary Carry Permit Issuance

4/18/16 New York Post:
A leader of the Boro Park Shomrim private safety patrol paid NYPD cops nearly $1 million in bribes to score pistol permits for 150 members of the Orthodox Jewish community — including one with a history of domestic violence who once threatened to kill someone, the feds charged Monday.

The stunning allegations against Alex “Shaya” Lichtenstein came as the NYPD announced it was cleaning house at its License Division, where a cop allegedly admitted that Lichtenstein gave him and a supervisor “lunch money” to process applications for him.

The division’s commanding officer, Deputy Inspector Michael Endall, “is being re-assigned to an administrative position pending further review,” Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said in a statement.

150 at once?  "I can get it for you wholesale. "


  1. I'm pretty sure that what's got the politicos so pissed off is that the clerks who were accepting bribes to process carry permits were charging less than the politicos did.

  2. Your closing remark brought to mind one of the few things I know about Terry Pratchett's "Discworld" series" - the national anthem of the city-state Ankh-Morpork: "We Can Rule You Wholesale."

  3. Support your local police. Bribe a cop today.
