    Welcome Pythius. As you can probably guess from my handle and avatar I'm also from the city that never sleeps

    It's nice to have a little more diversity of opinion and demography around here.

    Hey, hey! Welcome from another urban-dweller with differing political opinions than the majority on this forum.

    People from every corner of the U.S. are represented here, and it's clear that people who come from crime-ridden cities where there are shootings daily are naturally going to want some sort of regulation. I don't think there's anything wrong with that. I am one of those people. But people who come from areas without that caliber of crime may not feel that way. They've never been in that situation, or it doesn't affect them so it's not their problem. Which is also understandable. Why should their rights be compromised because of some yahoos on the other side of the country? Or perhaps they do agree there should be regulation, but no one will agree on what the best way to go about it is. That's just politics. Everyone wants the same thing - a peaceful nation where we can exercise our rights without issue - but finding a compromise is far from easy. I just hope we can all respect each other!

    (mods, if that was inappropriate, please just delete, but don't lock the thread down on my account!)

    Welcome from St. Louis.

    Reasonable gun registration? By whom?... Limited number of purchases?.... by whom?

    I understand the OP's thinking. You see I escaped from NY myself. It is hard for some of us NY'rs to understand that a firearm is just a tool. In the city of NY you are limited to what the king considers a reasonable firearm. In the city of NY the King decides who may have a handgun, how many firearms one can own, and what kind of firearms they can own. As I said I escaped from NY and was deprogrammed. Now living in Florida I feel much better now. Pythius my friend... take a road trip down to florida. Down here gun's are as common as knives and forks. Anyone who is not a convicted felon, or a mental case may own one... Any race, any religion, any creed, any sexual prefference, any handicap.. (yes even a blind person) may own firearms. Most people do own at least one firearm. Here in Florida you can walk into any gun shop. put down your money, prove a Florida residency buy a gun... any kind of a gun. Then come back in a few days, pass an instant background check... and walk out with your purchase. You can keep it loaded in your car. If you like take a few hour class, prove you can safely handle a gun, fill out an application...submit fingerprints, and in a few weeks get a license to carry a gun anywhere it's legal... in your pocket.

    The funny thing is.... were not at each others throats, we dont have wild west shootouts, we dont have race wars, we dont have murderers running amok, we dont settle our differences with our shootin irons... In fact murder outside the usual suspects is rare. People down here will shoot to defend themselves... so personal crime is pretty low. The only thing is... we're pretty polite to each other.

    Florida is that way because it's FLORIDA. Beautiful and sunny and beachy! Who would want to put a damper on the mood with a shooting?

    any handicap.. (yes even a blind person) may own firearms.
    Okay, you got me there. Really?

    I respect the right to bear arms, but I also believe in some common sense gun regulations. But I feel that NYC's gun regulations are too strict and should be reduced.

    I look forward to respectful, intelligent, and interesting conversation with you all. :)
    As I have stated in prior posts I also agree with rules for those who are to obtain licenses to carry. Generally my rule would be proven knowledge and ability. Those who have military history, law enforcement, or other agency good to go. Others should have to pass some sort of qualification course to show basic safety and ability. I have been around people with handguns who had no idea what they were doing and it was quite unnerving.

    Welcome from Michigan!
    I just moved here after spending 12 years in NJ New Jersey.
    I miss a few things about the NE... but certainly not all the 2A restrictions.
    Good to have you aboard.
    Enjoy.
