Hollywood star ROBERT DE NIRO is determined not to bow to public pressure - he intends to hang onto his handgun.
The actor, who famously brandished a gun in TAXI DRIVER, will not be joining the league of celebrities like YOKO ONO who oppose America's less-than-rigid gun policies.
Police records show the GOODFELLAS star recently renewed his handgun license - though his spokesman refuses to explain why the star could possibly need a firearm. (NFA/WNWDN/CPT)
