From the Daily News:
It could soon be a crime to get drunk while packing heat - unless you're a cop.
A bill aired at a City Council hearing Wednesday would subject licensed gun owners to a possible year in jail and $10,000 fine if they're over the limit and armed.
Public Safety Committee Chairman Peter Vallone Jr. said state law prevents the city from including on-duty or off-duty cops in the measure.
The bill has the support of the NYPD and Mayor Bloomberg, who failed to get a similar law passed in Albany that also exempted cops.
Arkady Gerney, a mayoral criminal justice aide, testified that police officers are covered by departmental penalties for carrying their firearms and drinking even when off-duty.
Yes, and we all know that cops crack down on other cops whenever possible...
