Jerome Hauer is an aide to New York’s famously intolerant and anti-gun Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Cuomo appointed Hauer in 2011.

Last October, Hauer reportedly waved a 9 mm Glock pistol around, using its sight as a laser pointer during a presentation. The laser even traced across the head of a Swedish foreign delegate who attended the presentation.

That’s an incredibly unsafe thing to do, and it brought attention to the fact that Hauer has been bringing the pistol to work since Gov. Cuomo hired him. That’s a violation of the state’s strict gun laws, which forbid state employees from carrying their guns to work.

Hauer has also suffered a stroke in the past, which renders him unsteady on his feet at times.

Reporters asked about Hauer and his gun. Cuomo refused to answer.

Now, Hauer has been granted a waiver that allows him to carry the pistol.

NY and CT are so far out of control with their gun laws. You know what's happening in CT? In order to get a permit to buy ammo you have to take a firearms course (the same one needed to get a pistol permit). So lots of guys who only had long guns for hunting are now saying "Gee I have to take a pistol permit course to buy ammo, I might as well get a handgun!" And so it goes...

I think you start out as a 'go fer', then you become a 'flunky', move up to 'minion', then get promoted to 'crony'. Or maybe that's a parallel career path, so that either you are a 'crony' or 'not a crony'.

Perhaps it depends on how much 'back scratching' or 'log rolling' you can stand with each other without it getting weird.
