The police have confiscated two guns belonging to a New York billionaire and are weighing whether to revoke his handgun license after officers responded to an incident this month at Trump Tower, according to a police official and two people familiar with the matter.I guess there goes Greg's theory about how the wealthy get preferential treatment.
The billionaire, Stewart J. Rahr, 66, a philanthropist who calls himself the “No. 1 king of all fun,” declined to comment on Wednesday.Details of the incident at Trump Tower were not immediately available. But Benjamin Brafman, a lawyer retained by Mr. Rahr, said in a statement: “There was a minor incident that the police are reviewing, as is standard practice. Based on my understanding of the facts, I am very confident that the matter will be closed without any formal proceedings whatsoever as Mr. Rahr did absolutely nothing wrong.”The police were summoned to Trump Tower in Midtown Manhattan, where Mr. Rahr has an office, on Nov. 1 after a heated exchange involving Mr. Rahr and an elevator operator, said one of the two people familiar with the matter. Both declined to be identified because they were not authorized to discuss the incident publicly.
