The New York City Police Department is preparing to revoke former US President Donald Trump’s licence to carry a gun, a senior police official told CNN.

Trump’s New York concealed carry licence was quietly suspended on April 1, 2023, following his indictment on criminal charges in New York, the official said.

Two of the three pistols he was licensed to carry were turned over to the NYPD on March 31, 2023, and a third gun listed on Trump’s licence “was lawfully moved to Florida,” the person added.

After Trump was convicted of 34 felonies on May 30, 2024, he could be in violation of multiple state and federal laws if he still possesses that third gun in Florida. CNN has reached out to representatives of Trump to determine whether he still has a gun in Florida.

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

The NYPD’s Legal Bureau will complete its investigation “that will likely lead to revocation of his licence,” the senior police official said. Trump could seek a hearing challenging the revocation.

Crowds erupt outside court after Trump verdict

Trump has had a license from the NYPD to carry a concealed firearm for more than a decade, according to multiple law enforcement sources, but because Trump’s application came with a request for confidentiality, they are exempt from public records requests, according to the NYPD’s guidelines and New York state law.

The suspension and pending revocation of his carry licence suggests that he maintained his license the entire time of his presidency and after, until he was charged with multiple felonies for falsifying business records in March 2023.

As a former US president, Trump has full-time US Secret Service protection.
