At City Hall, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and other city officials announced the takedown of an illegal gun sales operation in Brooklyn...
Mayor Bloomberg blamed “extremists in the pro-gun movement” for lax gun laws, and said, “We have to come together as a society and say we’re not going to take it anymore.”
Maybe that's where I've been going wrong. I always blame all gun owners. No wonder they get so upset with me. Even Mayor Bloomberg reserves his blame for the “extremists in the pro-gun movement.”
In the Brooklyn case announced on Monday, Mr. Bloomberg, joined by the Brooklyn district attorney, Charles J. Hynes, and Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly, said that for three months this summer, two men sold dozens of guns to undercover officers from an apartment in East New York. Officials said the guns, most of them purchased at pawn shops and gun shows in Florida, and brought by car to New York, were worth more than $40,000.
What's your opinion? Is Mayor Bloomberg lying when he says guns are coming into New York City from out of state? Is it unreasonable to suggest that stricter controls in Florida would have an impact on what happens in New York?
