NYC: NYPD moves to revoke disgraced former president’s gun license

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“Police in New York are seeking to revoke former President Donald Trump’s gun licence following his recent criminal conviction, US media reports. Unnamed officials within the New York City Police Department told CNN, the New York Times and ABC News that it was currently completing an investigation that would likely lead to the former president being banned from owning a gun. Both state law in New York and wider federal law prohibits individuals with felony convictions from possessing a firearm. The NYPD has not publicly confirmed the move in the case of Mr Trump. The BBC has approached it for comment.” (06/06/24)
