Washington, DC –-( 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.

150,000 a year and I get to carry a gun ? Where do I sign-up. That was easy.

This is the first lay out of firearms, by Laws Enforcement that look like, they will work.
There are two revolvers-with scopes that no one would pick for concelled carry.The other, I know the gang guys love to hold to the side.Very Hollywood. Most look 380’s, 9mm, maybe a 40 or two and one looks .45. Of Course no history of each.


Wouldn’t it be ironic, if not only was the security detail denied.. but that he was attacked and stabbed instead of shot.

Please, I’m NOT inciting violence or irony..


God how I pray that DeBlasio destroys NYC.


Will their mags have only 7 rounds?


When you are in public office or are selected by another to take public office, then you have to accept risk, just like our troops in service all over the world, all the way up to POTUS.

If he feels unsafe in NYC then he is free to go live somewhere else where nobody will care about him.


Who does he think he is, The POTUS?

He should have zero protection, he can keep his personal firearms(s) and that is that.


This is getting out of control. The NYPD Commissioner (A COP) needs a 6 man security team for 24×7 protection? And wants the tax payers to foot the bill. First of all, isn’t it your job to make your city safe for everyone? second, your a fucking cop!!! Carry a gun just like all the other ones do. Oh but wait, you will be a civilian and that means you cant carry a gun in your State. I guess you will just have to call 911, like everybody else. Also, how long do you get the benefit of this taxpayer… Read more »


Citizens willing to give up the right to arm themselves have no idea what they are willing to give up. One reason why some despot wanna-be like our present leader has not dissolved the Congress, declared martial law and suspend the Constitution is the realization that so many citizens are armed. Absent the right to “keep and bear arms” we would be at their mercy. Our founding fathers knew well what was at stake when they wrote the Second Amendment. To give up that right would be an insult to their memory.


he is against guns ,give him squat he dosent deserve 6 armed body guards he carry a pistol we dont

I believe; President Obama wants to disarm Americans because Disarming America will make The us a target from what is coming next.

Anyone wanting to take my firearms from my cold dead hands.


That’s fine … as long as they are “armed” per the constraints this assclown mandated for everyone else: 1 pocketknife with a blade that does not exceed 3 inches.


His, is the face of corruption, in New York city. I thank my lucky stars,every day, that I live in ARIZONA.

John A. Reimer

wats he afraid of?? take my guns deserves to be shot!!


Their lives actually mean something.
They are important people.
You don’t deserve to live. You are a nobody.

In the eyes of the elite, the only difference between us common folk and a sack of dog shit is the sack.


And the sad part is he will get his wish, he’s got the connections. They are the elite class, we are the peasants.


Someone should ask Raymond Kelly how he was permitted to be hired by the NYPD. Raymond Kelly is no more than five feet five inches tall. When he joined the NYPD in the early 1960’s there was a height requirement of five feet seven inches. Many men who were not able to meet the height requirement were unable to become police officers. However it looks like Kelly had someone pull some strings. Just goes to show you how corrupt New York is!


I’ll bet you all of Bloombergs’ cash that his “security” won’t just be carrying a simple Glock or Berretta either.
NFA all-the-way for this elitist, hypocritical, anti-american commie.

I’ll also bet they don’t train near as much as the average citizen even IF they are/were part of NYPD swat.

The “security” should be called-out as hypocrites as well.

p. arel

say no ! you are not getting them.


Democrats proving their Common Sense approach works. Way to go!!

BTW: how many murders with firearms are listed in NYC now? Hmm…

Robert Shuttles

The city of New York should give the retiring Commish a gun insted of a gold watch and advise him to protect himself. That is still more than he would allow the rest of us to have.
