MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Westchester County police took former Mount Vernon police Commissioner Terrance Raynor's gun after finding he didn't have a permit to carry one, according to Lohud.com.

Westchester County Police officers discovered Raynor's gun when the responded to a confrontation between two men at Kensico Dam Plaza. By the time officers arrived, the two men had left, but they talked to people in the park, including Raynor, who they noticed was carrying a weapon under his jacket, said Lohud.com.

Although he didn't have a permit, Raynor said he had a right to carry the gun under a federal law that allows retired police officers to carry a gun if a law enforcement agency has found them to be qualified. Officers made a decision to keep the gun until he turned over proof of qualification to carry, added Lohud.com.
