Anti-gun New York Dem packs heat

Yet another "do as I say, not as I do" report, this one about an anti-gun New York Democrat (but I repeat myself) politician from the Big Apple:
Democrat State Sen. Eric “Show Me the Muh-ney!” Adams carries a concealed handgun and wants to arm his staff for travel around his high-crime Central Brooklyn district—but at the same time wants to make it tougher for you to have a weapon for our personal protection.

Adams, whose rant for a pay raise was immortalized in a YouTube video, wants to hire an ex-cop to escort staff on trips throughout his district.

“It's not for me," he said. "I'm my own bodyguard. It's mainly for my female staff."

Adams told The Post he carries his own gun when home in Brooklyn, but leaves it in a drawer when he’s at work in Albany.
But while Adams has no problem increasing the number of guns on the street in his Brooklyn Senate district, he’s one of Albany’s most ardent anti-gun lawmakers, earning a failing grade from the NRA for his positions. ...

Read about it here. Doesn't Mr. Adams know that New York City bans ordinary folks (the "common people", in case that helps him recognize who we're talking about) from carrying guns? Thus, he and his staff have nothing to fear on the streets of Brooklyn. Right?

Note that Mr. Adams "carries his own gun when home in Brooklyn[.]" So he's not adverse to using guns for personal protection. He just doesn't want you (see "common people", above) to be able to do the same.
