To carry a concealed hand gun, which is apparaently something required of cabbies in the city, the individual needs to apply with the police. Today we find Captain Canelli dealing with a retired cop who wants to apply for the LD80, the permit for a hand gun. The concern is that the aging retired cop may not see well enough to qualify. In voiceover, Canelli tells why the LD80 is required, and it’s importance. The 73 year old man is likeable, and an upstanding citezen, but Canelli has the tough duty of turning the old gent down.
Still, he investigates the man a little by visiting his family to see if there might be some way to allow the LD80 to go through. The only strike against the man’s character is his failing eyesight. The decision isn’t looking good for the applicant, but how will he take it?
