Arming Goldman With Pistols Against Public

Dec. 1 (Bloomberg) -- “I just wrote my first reference for a gun permit,” said a friend, who told me of swearing to the good character of a Goldman Sachs Group Inc. banker who applied to the local police for a permit to buy a pistol. The banker had told this friend of mine that senior Goldman people have loaded up on firearms and are now equipped to defend themselves if there is a populist uprising against the bank.

I called Goldman Sachs spokesman Lucas van Praag to ask whether it’s true that Goldman partners feel they need handguns to protect themselves from the angry proletariat. He didn’t call me back. The New York Police Department has told me that “as a preliminary matter” it believes some of the bankers I inquired about do have pistol permits. The NYPD also said it will be a while before it can name names.

I wonder if their shooting...

abilities are as crooked as their books? Or if their ability to draw down on an individual is as twisted as their business? Maybe their quick draw technique is as complicated as their rules, but I think in the end their store of gumption and bravery will be as empty as the backing for their fractional reserve scam.

A prudent man foresees the difficulties ahead and prepares for them; the simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Proverbs 22:3
Matthew 10:34 Think not that I am come to
send peace on earth: I came not to send peace,
but a sword.

Unfortunately the public is so fucking stupid, even if they do find out they will understand it all wrong

Interesting

I didn't know:

Concealed gun permits are almost impossible for ordinary citizens to obtain in New York or nearby states.

Nice to think that Goldman people realize how much people regard them as white-collar thieves.
