The FBI has uncovered an illegal operation in the New York Police Department License Division. Both pistol purchase and carry permits were expedited through bribery to members of the Orthodox Jewish community. Court papers say that Alex Lichtenstein offered a whistleblower $6,000 a permit to continue the scheme, which would net him as much as $900,000 for 150 permits. Former NYPD officer John Cardillo of “The John Cardillo Show” says that it was the opportunity for discretion that allowed for the corruption. If New York City had Shall Issue right to carry, there could have been no opportunity for abuse. Originally aired on Cam & Co 04/19/16.
