The Court's decision today and its decision in 2008 in District of Columbia v. Heller both make clear that we can work to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists while at the same time respecting the constitutional rights of law-abiding citizens. That's what New York City has always done. And, I will continue to collaborate with mayors across the country to pursue common-sense, constitutional approaches to protecting public safety.
Bloomberg speaks, the rest of us wretch.
A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.
Bloomie's definition of 'law-abiding citizens' is rather narrow.
By his sovereign decree full-citizenship extends to LE, politicians, judges and members of 'rich and well connected.'

He's very afraid...
I think what I just read was Bloomberg giving the SC the middle finger.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
NYC has thrown up every possible road block in order to keep handguns out of the hands of law abiding citizens, including the requirement to complete volumes of paperwork, provide references and pay huge fees in order to exercise what has now be recognized by the SCOTUS as an individual, fundmental right, a right enforceable against the states.

So I expect all NY state CCW license permit holders will get a letter in the mail from the NYC mayor, welcoming us all to a CC celebration? The letter will go on to say that all our licenses will be amended to include CC for all of NYC?
Wow I can't wait this is going to be..... wait, what? I'm dreaming? Holy crap I thought it was real.... Silly me I should have known it was a dream...... :)....Well don't wake me up now, I'm about to walk into my bedroom where Amanda Seyfried is waiting for me naked......
Gun Control: The theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her panty hose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

I am curious what will happen in California now. Especially in Los Angeles!
