Celeb-Packed Apartments to Have Armed Guards for Election Day

London Terrace Towers, a luxe apartment building in Chelsea, New York that has been home to Chelsea Clinton, Pete Davidson and Tim Gunn, among other famous and wealthy residents are hiring armed guards for Election day, Page Six reported.

Management reportedly sent out an email to residents which read, “As you are aware, government enforcement agencies across the country are making plans to control the possible civil unrest following the upcoming presidential election.”

“Regardless of the outcome of [Tuesday’s] election, our concerns range from isolated violent incidents to a long stretch of mass protests, confrontations between extremists, and potential property damage,” it continued.

The building comprising four corner buildings at Ninth and Tenth Avenues will be patrolled with extra guards, and insiders told Page Six they’ll be carrying guns.

A four-bedroom apartment in the luxurious buildings is currently listed for sale at $7.5 million. A two-bedroom apartment is currently available for a monthly rent of $7,800.

Other current and former residents of the building include Debbie Harry, Malcolm Gladwell, Bill Hader, Annie Leibovitz, Bridget Moynahan, tennis star Milos Raonic, iHeartRadio podcaster Rob Shuter and his Grammy-winning husband Bruce Sussman.

“It’s all a little much but this is Chelsea and with The Eagle leather bar closed due to the pandemic, no one is going to complain about seeing guys in uniform with a big gun!” said one resident.

The residents of London Terrace are not the only wealthy New Yorkers battening down the hatches. The Post’s Jennifer Gould reported on Wednesday that the city’s “ultra rich are quietly preparing for civil unrest on Election Day — by hiring armed guards to stand watch over their luxury Manhattan buildings.”

  1. They recognize the value of guns. Always have and that’s why they want to disarm Americans.

  2. How many of those celebrities have spoken out in favor of defunding the police? Are supporters of BLM? Favor gun ‘control”? Vote democrat?

    The hypocrisy is blatant. The cognitive dysfunction… pathological.

    • Who needs police when you have heavily armed private security. We average people live in parallel worlds with the woke super-rich.

  3. Us rubes in Arizona will be defending our homes with our own weapons, thank you

  4. The irony of the biggest supporters of blm anarchy having to hire private security to protect themselves from blm anarchy…welcome to the real world elitists.

    No security for you if there’s none for me.
    You’re a bunch of snowflake phagits and smelly lezbeans incapable of hiding your hypocrisy any longer.
    May you all be viciously attacked and suffer the wrath of your blm and antifa ilk.

  6. As Mr Wilkow says (sorta): Socialism is for us, not the socialists.

  7. This is a drive-by article…not much depth or investigating or journalism or facts…why post this?

  8. Hypocrisy is intrinsic to the vile Dhimmi-crats. They’re happy to restrict the right to armed self-defense of Americans who can’t afford to hire private security guards (i.e., the vast majority of the citizenry), while they stay safe in their ivory tower bubbles, protected by those same firearms they would deny to the peasant rabble.

    Also, it’s rather ironic that the violence that these Dhimmi-crat idiots fear, remains exclusively the province of goose-stepping, Dhimmi-crat nihilist goons, not conservatives.

  9. The usial response from the DO AS I SAY NOT AS I DO liberal eletists Oh how they must think their so special how they think they can walk on air and turn water into wine just the spoiled little brats of wealthy liberals
