Democratic gun-grabbers (including their staff). They just won’t take firearm possession seriously:
The Cuomo administration has obtained a waiver to allow the head of the state Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services to carry a handgun at work.
The required sign-off from a law barring state employees from packing a weapon at their workplace came from the state Office of General Services four days after the Times Union published a story about DHSES Commissioner Jerome M. Hauer using his handgun’s laser sighting attachment as a pointer in a meeting with a Swedish delegation.
The Daily Caller goes on to note:
Officials at the meeting said “that three Swedish emergency managers in the delegation were rattled when the gun’s laser tracked across one of their heads before Hauer found the map of New York, at which he wanted to point,” according to the Times Union.
…Hauer denies that, but not that he was carrying a gun, and that he was using the sight as a laser pointer (he only pointed it at the ‘wall.’ Hauer also claims that he had verbal authorization to carry the gun, which is nice… and not a legitimate defense under NY state law. Hence, the sudden waiver: because when guns are outlawed, only outlaws – and incompetent New York state officials – will have guns.
PS: Please do not use your gun as a laser pointer. Even if it is unloaded. And I do not believe that I had to write that sentence out.
