    Well, you know it COULD BE WORSE. It COULD BE 72 people shot over a 26 hour period.


    At least they have cut down on their sugar intake by not having those obnoxiously huge cups of soda readily available.

    We have to be thankful for the little things.

    Yeah, and I bet not one of them had over 7 rounds.

    See, Bloombergs 7 round limit saved a bunch of folks.

    It has already been 100+ here this year and as far as I know, it hasn't made anyone in my area shoot anyone. Man, they just love to place blame anywhere but on the scumbags, don't they?

    Some studies have suggested that violent crimes increase with the temperature, perhaps as more people mingle outdoors
    That would seem to be a very compelling reason for Bloomberg to make warm weather illegal in NYC.

    We had 90+ temps with high humidity for 4 straight days and we did not have any shootings in our area that I heard of. Not that I would compare anywhere in NH to NYC but that crap about warmer weather causing more shootings is some serious bull poopy.

    Bloomberg should ban excessive heat instead of guns.

    It's not their fault!! It is the systems fault that they are poor and lazy. They are also mostly in gangs and sell drugs and that is what the shootings are really over. Lets not point out the REAL reasons here.

    But that can't be true they have these to stop all that in its tracts !

    Gun laws in New York regulate the sale, possession, and use of firearms and ammunition in the state of New York in the United States.

    New York has among the most restrictive gun laws in the nation. Most New York State gun laws are covered in two sections of New York Penal law: Article 265 - Firearms and Other Dangerous Weapons; and Article 400 - Licensing and Other Provisions Relating to Firearms. These laws ban handgun possession and provide exemptions, including individuals licensed to carry handguns, or to possess them for other reasons, including sports, repair, or disposal.

    Statewide, New York enforces various firearm related prohibitions, many proscriptions similarly listed in the now-expired Federal Assault Weapons Ban.[1][2][3] On January 15, 2013, the state assault weapons ban was further strengthened by the NY SAFE Act. Specified rifle magazines are banned: a) manufactured after 1994; and b) the magazine holds in excess of 10 rounds (handguns included). A 10 round magazine is permissible, but may only contain 7 rounds. Any semi-automatic rifle or shotgun with just one of these features are banned: 1) pistol grip; 2) bayonet lug; 3) telescoping or folding stock; 4) flash suppressor; 5) threaded barrel; or 6) grenade launcher.[4][5][6] The SAFE Act expanded the ban to add the following features: 7) muzzle brake; 8) muzzle compensator; 9) thumbhole stock; and 10) foregrip.[7] All "assault" style rifles and shotguns purchased prior to January 15, 2013 are grandfathered, but must be registered within one year of the SAFE Act passage.[8]

    Sorry, I'll play along. What I meant to say was, "Damn global warming!!"

    Saw this posted elsewhere. In some of the comments, writers are actually still blaming the "lax gun laws" in other states for these shootings.

    Typical Bloombergers, blame everyone else because there is no way their own gang members could be at fault.

    I say outlaw all guns in New York and get rid of the body guards of the polictions and the rich people . Then build a big moat around the state so no more guns will harm anyone. They can live happily ever after.

    That must be why crime is low here. We've only had 3 days over 70 yet this year, and only one over 80.
