NYPD to revoke Donald Trump’s right to carry a gun now that he’s a convicted felon

Gun Rights

Ex-President and convicted felon Donald Trump is on the brink of losing his gun license due to his new criminal status, according to a representative from the New York Police Department.

Following his conviction on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records, a high-ranking police official disclosed to CNN that the New York City Police Department is preparing to revoke Trump’s gun license. It’s a federal offense for a convicted felon to own a firearm.

The senior police official declared that the NYPD’s Legal Bureau is about to wrap up its investigation “that will likely lead to revocation of his license.” Trump’s team has the right to request a hearing to challenge the revocation.

Trump’s concealed carry license in New York was already quietly suspended on April 1, 2023, after he was charged with criminal offenses in New York, the official revealed.

On March 31, 2023, two of the three pistols he was licensed to carry were surrendered to the NYPD, and a third firearm listed on Trump’s license “was lawfully relocated to Florida,” the source further informed.

Last month, the former president received an official endorsement from the National Rifle Association after delivering a keynote speech at their annual gathering. During his speech, Trump urged gun owners to cast their votes in his favor.

In response, the Biden campaign didn’t mince words in their critique of the former president in a statement concerning the expected gun license revocation.

“When Trump tells the NRA he won’t do a damn thing to prevent convicted felons, domestic abusers, and other dangerous people from getting their hands on guns, he’s talking about himself,” declared James Singer, the campaign spokesperson.

The next phase in Trump’s trial is sentencing, which is happening on July 11. Potential jail time on the horizon, but unlikely. In the meantime, Trump, the probable GOP front-runner, faces an extensive appeal process, and several other criminal cases. Of course, he’s still running his 2024 Presidential campaign.

After more than nine hours of deliberation over two days, a jury in Manhattan found Trump guilty of falsifying business documents related to a quiet money payout made to adult film actress Stormy Daniels amid the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump fiercely labeled the trial a “disgrace,” yelled that he was an “innocent man” to reporters, and continues to compare himself to Mother Theresa. He still faces 57 more felony counts across one state court and two different federal districts, any of which could potentially produce a prison sentence.

A felony conviction usually results in individuals losing fundamental civil rights, such as the ability to vote, serve on a jury, and own or manipulate firearms. It can also bar people from working in specific sectors, including law enforcement, education, and healthcare.

Following his conviction on May 30, if Trump still possesses that third firearm in Florida, he might be violating several state and federal laws. CNN has reached out to Trump’s representatives to verify if he still owns a gun in that state.
