1. Maybe he had a dream the feds were coming to arrest him ...

and he's thinking about a stand-off with them.

2. YES, LETS give Trump A gun (sarcasm)

This is the last thing he needs, and the Secret Service should take it away from him, in his mental state.

6. You can get a gun permit if you don't live there?

Huh? You can't get a driver's license in a place you don't live. What's up with this?

7. Sadly, it's probably much easier to get a gun

than a drivers license

8. It's legal in PA, if I am reading this correct:

http://www.psp.pa.gov/firearms-information/Pages/Carrying-Firearms-in-Pennsylvania.aspx

Individuals who are 21 years of age or older and are NOT Pennsylvania residents may apply for a license by submitting a completed Application for a Pennsylvania License to Carry Firearms to any Pennsylvania County Sheriff’s office along with the required fee. A Pennsylvania license cannot be issued to a resident of another state who does not possess a current license or permit or similar document to carry a firearm issued by their home state if a license is provided for by the laws of that state, as published annually in the Federal Register by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms of the Department of the Treasury.

9. I think it's a permit to CARRY a gun, not to BUY one

Presumably Junior already owns the gun and has a NY gun owner license. He's applying for a carry permit, if I'm reading this correctly. A carry permit means you're allowed to conceal the gun (like an undercover po-po or private eye) which is what most celebrities would want to do.

This isn't so unusual, I guess. Maybe he'll shoot himself in the foot, you never know.

11. I think if they come to arrest him he will off himself

rather than go to jail. Face it those soft boys will not do well in prison, even a country club prison.
