New York is the poster child of Gun Control. Cops have guns,but try getting one to a crime scene fast enough to stop that mugger from shooting you. That's Part II-Most non-Police owned guns are unregistered,acquired through the black market or stolen,thus untraceable,and belong to people who expect to use them to COMMIT crimes. So-when some thug with a gun wants to break into your apartment and rob you,what's your best weapon of self defense? Baseball bat? Kitchen knife? Hammer? 40 caliber,with a mag full of" HydroShock"s? Now you're talking!! OOPS-Nope-you can't have that here.
