Bill Cosby doesn't want you proles out there carrying guns, saying that: “When you carry a gun, you mean to harm somebody, kill somebody.”
Of course, Cosby excuses himself. He thinks he should be able to carry guns.
How do I know this? Well he applied, and successfully got a NYC carry permit. A process that is very expensive, involved, and legally complicated, thus it is not done casually. Mr. Cosby had to have really, really, really wanted to be able to carry a gun.
Also, I'm sure Bill, likes the approval process itself. New York City only issues licences to "the right" people. Can't have the common rabble, those without political connections, and those that are just "the wrong sort" carrying guns, eh Bill?
Again, it's not about the guns, it's about the control.
