  •  Concealed carry in NYC just about non-existent (4+ / 0-)

    unless you are a cop, a security guard (ex-cop), a diamond merchant, a high profile celebrity, or another very special circumstance. If you are a minority teen ager living in the Bronx, the chance that you are carrying legally is virtually zero. That's why in the documented cases of cop on cop shootings in NYC, the majority of off duty black cops were shot by white cops on duty. While their motivations are not known, one can surmise that the white cops assumed that the most likely explanation for an armed black man in the neighborhood was that he was a bad guy.
