NEW YORK, Aug. 3 (UPI) -- A bevy of New York City's biggest stars can carry loaded guns, according to a list of gun-license holders of the police.

Among the more than 3,600 New Yorkers allowed to hit the street with a loaded weapon are: Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel, Howard Stern, Don Imus, Donald Trump and Tommy Mottola, the New York Post reported.

Ex-police chief Howard Safir and publisher and author Michael Korda also have gun licenses, but they're not allowed to strap on their weapons.

Their "premise" permit allows them to keep a gun in their homes and demands that when they travel with their weapons, the guns must be unloaded and locked in a safety box, with the ammunition kept separate.

William F. Buckley, Chazz Palminteri, Paul Sorvino, Joan Rivers and Steven Seagal were turned down when they applied to have their permits renewed by the New York Police Department since 2002, the Post said.
