Yes, but what are the odds that the former NYPD captain would favor allowing law-abiding New Yorkers to do the same?
The Democratic front-runner in the New York City mayoral race said last year he would not use personal security if he wins the election, opting instead to carry his own gun.
“Yes I will, No. 1,” Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams said in January 2020 when asked if he would keep his firearm if elected mayor.
“And No. 2, I won’t have a security detail. If the city is safe, the mayor shouldn’t have a security detail with him. He should be walking the street by himself,” he added.
