Trump’s gun permit in New York revoked after conviction: sources

(NEW YORK) – New York City police will revoke former President Donald Trump’s gun license following his conviction on 34 crimes last week in Manhattan, sources told ABC News.

Possession of a firearm by a convicted felon is a federal crime.

The former president’s gun license was initially suspended after he was criminally charged by the Manhattan district attorney’s office last year.

On May 30, a jury convicted him of 34 counts of falsifying company records in the criminal case related to an alleged hush money payment to adult film star Stormy Daniels. Trump has maintained he did nothing illegal and said he will appeal the decision.

The verdict is scheduled for July.

It is unclear when the NYPD will officially revoke Trump’s gun permit, sources said.

Trump will still have the protection of the Secret Service.

The former president was indicted twice by special counsel Jack Smith on federal charges related to Trump’s alleged interference in the 2020 election and alleged keeping of classified government documents at his Mar-a-Lago estate.

Trump also faces state charges in Fulton County, Georgia, over his alleged interference in the 2020 election.

The former president has pleaded not guilty to these charges and denied any wrongdoing.
