Donald Trump’s license to carry a gun in NY expected to be revoked after ‘hush money’ trial conviction: sources

Gun Rights

Former President Donald Trump’s license to carry a gun in New York is expected to be revoked after he was convicted of 34 felony counts in Manhattan last week, sources told The Post.

While Trump’s concealed carry license had already been suspended last year, the license will “likely” be revoked by the NYPD unless the president files a legal petition, the sources said on Wednesday.

Under New York state and federal law, convicted felons are barred from possessing any type of firearm, with Trump legally mandated to surrender all weapons to authorities by his July 11 sentencing.

Trump could keep his weapons by applying for a certificate of relief from civil disabilities, but the former president’s legal team has yet to file the petition, sources added.

Since Trump’s New York gun license application included a request for confidentiality, the details of his license are exempt from public records.

The GOP-front runner could also legally keep his firearms if an appeals court ends up overturning his felony convictions from the hush money trial.

Trump had surrendered two of his guns to the NYPD on March 31, 2023, a day before his license was suspended, with a third gun “lawfully moved to Florida,” CNN reported.

But following his felony conviction, the former president could find himself in more legal trouble if he is still in possession of the third gun in the Sunshine State.

Convicted felons are free to transfer their weapons to a local police precinct or legally transfer ownership of the firearms to someone else.

Trump previously told a French magazine that he is always strapped following a series of terror attacks in Paris back in 2016.

“I always carry a weapon on me,” he touted. “If I’d been at the Bataclan [concert hall] or one of those bars, I would have opened fire.”
