Using the gun's laser as a pointer? How is this guy even qualified to carry outside his home?

Not surprised at all about the waiver. But what an idiot, using a gun laser as a pointer, and then sweeping it across a person!

Hauer’s 9-millimeter Glock first came to the attention of local newspapers when he used the gun’s laser sighting attachment as a pointer during a meeting with a Swedish delegation. That event occurred last October at a State Police bunker, and was first reported by the Albany Times Union in January.
The Left Wing Elite can do whatever they want to do. They make the laws for the serfs not for themselves.

they keep saying he used the laser attachment... did he leave it on the gun? Almost seems like they want everyone to think that, but sounds more like he removed the attachment from the gun, and used it by itself.
You could color me many things, but surprised isn't one of them. They're not subject to the same laws as you and I and nobody is making sure they are.

Doesn't matter whether the laser was attached or not. He obviously has been carrying for some time, against the law. Whether he felt he had the right because of his position or the fact he was issued a waiver after the fact, he is in violation of the law. Ignorance is no excuse and after the fact still means he broke the law. Sometimes it doesn't matter what you know, but who you know. Sadly and Unfortunately.
If he was a conservative, he would be facing multiple felonies.
Also, isn't the waiver functioning as an ex post facto law?

This should be used by the first defense lawyer defending someone for a similar offense.

Unless I'm wayyy mistaken, he cannot do this.
I'm not an attorney, however, unless I misrember my civics, I do believe that laws cannot be changed post facto from an event. They cannot be "backdated". If this apparent human chose to break the NY laws, then he did so; and waivers could not excuse a previous violation. <P>
"...the gun’s laser tracked across one of their heads before Hauer found the map of New York, at which he wanted to point...”
This is simply not forgivable.
Oh, and just what are the conditions for a "waiver", how many waivers have been issued, who issued this one, and is there any conspiracy involved?

If anyone dislikes the article I linked, feel free to googlenews your own.
In Gibson v. Commonwealth, 237 Ky. 33, 34 S.W.2d 936 (1936), the High Court stated: “[I]t is the tradition that a Kentuckian never runs. He does not have to.”
It doesn't matter if he is a lefty or a righty, ALL of the politicians try to exempt themselves from the same laws that everyone else has to follow. During the "government shut down", you noticed that Congress and their lackeys still got paid. They are exempt from the "Affordable Health Care Act",
