Bribes For Gun Permits in NYC
The Supreme Court will soon decide whether the government will let residents carry guns. It’s not an easy process, says John Stossel, who once tried to obtain a carry permit in New York City.
“They didn’t make it easy,” he says. “They required pages and pages of forms, notarization, records of death threats I’d received and two trips to police headquarters.” Not to mention a $430 fee. Stossel says the whole process took 8.5 months and the results: Denied.
Further investigation by Stossel not only found that the rich and famous in New York were easily obtaining carry permits, but also cops were being bribed in the “permit” department. He found that some politically connected individuals were offering cops as much as $6,000 to issue permits. More on the story with Stossel.
