    How can that be possible?

    Wow, the Blooming Idiot has lost control of his city, yet he wants to impose those same laws on the rest of us.

    This is almost as bad as Chicago

    You see, the problem isn't firearms, it is gang violence.

    And on a more serious note, may those that were killed Rest in Peace, even though their deaths were less than peaceful, and may those that were injured all make a quick recovery, and nobody else pass away.

    Sorry to say, but the NY weapons ban is working fine....just as intended....for the criminal element who cares not what the blooming idiot says or does.....He has very successfully turned law abiding citizens into paper targets.

    One only need to look at Mexico to see what happens when only the criminals are allowed to keep their guns. The rest of the population is just there to prey upon. Good job Bloomberg.

    Yeah, I'll just bet the murderers and robbers were thinking on the 7th round that that was the end of the crimes for the outing.

    I'm sure a good number of those who voted for these criminalizations believed that would be true. In reality, of course, it's only the upstanding who give two hoots about trying to avoid being penalized for such things. The actual felons out there just keep laughing in their sleeves at the inanity.

    This article proves that the news media is lying in their reporting. Either, the entire article is a lie because the SAFE Act is preventing gun violence and his story is a made up fiction, or the media lied when hey said the SAFE Act would prevent this type of violence.

    I cannot help but feel some schadenfreude here, but you believed he gun controllers lies, do not be surprised when crime rises.
