    John Stossels Denied Permit?

    I must say I was surprised to see him denied.

    Either he is NOT politically connected as I thought he was or not nearly wealthy enough.

    Anyone who is sighted in the immediate area of Sean Hannity, Bill O'Rielly, or Ted Nuggent will automatically be denied.........

    LOL..Probably true however; I noticed Donald Trump was granted a license, and as far as I know, Mr. Trump has been on FOX news many times.
    The only difference is Mr. Trump has a little more money than Mr. Stossels. ;) Mr. Trump I believe has political leanings to the right as well.

    Money still speaks loudly as it always has.

    Saw on Fox last night that an appeals court said that California cannot deny ccp's because a person "hasn't shown the need for one". Stossel said that was the reason he was given in NY. It was just on the crawler on the bottom. Havent seen or heard any more

    I don't think it's that Stossel doesn't have connections. His intent was to show that ordinary people, as a rule, do not get issues permits. He didn't try to use his money or connections to stand out, thus was denied like every other citizen.

    And I met a guy at a range in Pa. who has a NYC permit and showed it to me. He told me he was a sanitation worker and had no problem getting it.......go figure.

    That is ridiculous. There are a few places I hope to never go. Washington D.C., NYC and I've been to Chicago (never again!).

    I don't see what the big deal is. After you are robbed/raped/stabbed/shot/etc. and survive, you'll be able to get your permit.

    Stop whining.

    a NYC permit to carry?
    NYC will issue "target" permits and "premises" carry permits are way harder to come by.
    NYC uses the same criteria that was just ruled unconstitutional in CA.

    I believe he has a Nassau county permit, he doesn't live in NYC so it would unusual for them to issue him one

    John Stossels Denied Permit?

    I know, but he also has an NYC permit. Not all that shocking as he works in NYC. It came out when that newspaper in NYS published gun owners names. Someone else posted a list of NYC permit holders...he was on that list along with Donald Trump and other connected people. IIRC, think Howard Stern has one, too.

    Hannity was annoyed (rightly so), when his name appeared on the NYC list. He talked to Trump about it on air.

    Watched this episode. They gave him a "premises" permit, but wouldn't grant him a carry permit. This is after he showed threats he had received from the "loving and tolerant" he some how offended through the years.

    You ever see what happens when those guys go on strike? They have more juice than the NYPD.
