Another hysterical whine from Mr Bloomberg. Bloomberg likes to tell us how guns from southern states make their way to NY City where they jump into the hands of fine upstanding citizens and make them into criminals.
I try to ignore everything on Communist News Network. It's not good for my blood pressure.
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
'Nuff said...The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of Michael R. Bloomberg.
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.

If we had amnesty for all guns, then we could reduce the amount of illegal guns moving between states to 0. Isn't this waht they want to do with illegal immigrants?
What gun sales are they talking about? Is this about sales from an FFL to a citizen that has been approved for purchase by the Federal government through the NICS check, or are they talking about sales from one criminal to another?
On the other hand, there must be very little crime committed in NYC with guns pruchased illegally since I never see where this crime is prosecuted.

And all this time I thought the states with "lax" gun laws were Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Montana and Idaho.

It's really simple. Go back in the history books and look at how well prohibition stopped drinking in the US. I would LOVE to remove every single illegal gun from hands of criminals and leave them only in the hand of law-abiding people. Gun bans or making it impossible for average Joes to own guns does NOTHING to stop the criminal from having one. This was probably a debate from the first time a caveman forged tools out of bone and will last until the year 3535 when our floating brains overlords finally settle it.
