Trump’s gun license set to be revoked after conviction in secret trial

Former President Donald Trump’s gun license should be revoked now that he has been convicted of 34 counts of falsifying business records, according to a New York Police Department spokesperson.

Trump’s firearms license for New York City was suspended following his indictment, the spokesperson said.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the expected revocation, which was first reported by CNN.

Gun licenses are often revoked after convictions in New York.

It’s clear when the former president last held a gun, but his New York City firearms license was active at the time of his indictment in the hush money case in March 2023 , according to the NYPD spokesperson.

He has been under Secret Service protection since 2015, when he became the Republican presidential nominee.

Trump was found guilty last Thursday on all 34 counts of falsifying business records, a historic verdict marking the first time in history that a former US president has been convicted.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on July 11, just days before the Republican National Convention where he will be officially named the party’s nominee for president.

The former president gave a speech last month at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting, where the group officially endorsed him. During his speech, Trump urged gun owners to vote.
