If you've been keeping up with your firearms news, you probably learned over the weekend that Morgan Stanley chairman John Mack counts himself among the 37,000-plus people licensed to own up to 25 handguns in New York. And not just in his home in Westchester where he might need protection from the Chappaqua riffraff-- Mack has permission to bring his gun into the city. Naturally, this revelation brings up a couple of questions.
First off, does he bring a gun with him every time he comes into NYC, or just for meetings he thinks might get particularly heated? Did he have a gun with him the time he told Tim Geithner to go fuck himself and if yes, how close was he to whipping it out?
Second, and more importantly, what kind of heat do we think Mack is packing? A six-shooter? A sawed-off shotgun? A FN Five-SeveN? A lipstick gun? And how about if- and we're not saying he does but if- he's also got some unlicensed weapons, what's included in that collection? A musket? A Red Ryder BB Gun? And does his hand count as a weapon, as it well should?
