These guys are from New York. While they don't ban handguns, assault weapons are banned, and you must have a permit to own a handgun. You also must show a "letter of necessity" to get a carry permit. In other words, it's very hard to carry a gun legally in NYC. Ergo, these two guys probably have little interaction with handgun owners, other than their armed bodyguards. They have no clue about a "gun culture" other than what they see on the streets of New York. C'mon out to the heartland guys! I'd be willing to bet that you would be interacting with handgun carriers several times/day and wouldn't even realize it.
