Washington, DC –-(Ammoland.com)- Ray Kelly, NYPD Commissioner has been one of the most outspoken supporters of anti-gun Mayor Michael Bloomberg's gun control initiatives.
Kelly regularly gave interviews in which he made his anti-gun sentiments known.
Now, according to DNAInfo, the police chief, who will no longer lead the NYPD after Bloomberg leaves office, says he needs a security detail of 6 taxpayer funded detectives to protect himself and his family.
According to the DNAInfo piece,
Citing the fact that he will remain a “high profile target” after he leaves office, Kelly informed insiders at Police Headquarters that he will request the contingent of detectives — each will remain on the city payroll making about $120,000 a year — to shepherd him around town and protect him and his family during their travels, sources told “On the Inside.”
This is further hypocrisy by elite anti-gunners who don't believe that private citizens should be armed, but enjoy round the clock armed protection themselves.
The request would have to approved by Kelly's replacement and would likely need the approval of City Hall as well.
The article also says that Michael Bloomberg will be hiring his entire 17 person NYPD security detail as private security, paying each member of the detail $150,000. The multi-billionaire should easily be able to afford the annual $2.5 million security costs.
Yet another example of the anti-gun hypocrisy. Bloomberg wants to see guns banned, but will enjoy round the clock protection by 17 armed individuals.
