Martha Stewart’s Daughter Granted Handgun Permit in NYC

Handguns are not banned outright in New York City, but they are heavily regulated, and applicants are required to prove a “special need.” I'm not talking about carry permits; this is just what it takes to buy a pistol.

Self-defense alone is not enough justification for an ordinary citizen to get a handgun permit in New York. You wanna know what Alexis Setwart’s special need is? She keeps a gun so she can shoot her aged English Bulldogs if there’s another terrorist attack, and she needs to leave town fast.

I don’t have the imagination to make up this kinda stuff folks.
