    NYC bill prohibiting "Saturday Night Specials"

    Councilman G. Oliver Koppell has introduced a bill prohibiting the sale or possession of pistols or revolvers that do not meet safety and quality standards established by the Police Commissioner. I don't have a bill # yet.

    And how do they plan to test the quality standards of a tool which they describe as "having no other purpose than to kill people"?

    I could think of a few ways they could do it. . .

    I'm all for safety standards, but what kinds of crazy restrictions is NYC going to place on firearms? You could put so many "safety" rules in place so as to basically ban firearms.

    When only cops have guns, it's called a "police state". Love your country, but never trust its government.
