No logical or reasonable comment on this matter will do any good at all.
Bloomberg's stated position is, "I've already made up my mind, so don't try to confuse me with facts."
How can any set of laws and regulations that affect the law-abiding have any effect upon a criminal?
Martinez was in illegal possession of a gun. He was already a criminal, by definition, because he hadn't taken out the required peddler's license. Possessing the gun was merely another criminal act. Further, he probably was in illegal possession the gun in order to illegally sell it to somebody else.
How can making more or stronger laws against gun possession have any effect on people like Martinez?
Bloomberg can't answer that one, so he merely avoids the issue and makes more anti-gun edicts. To the fools who vote for him, it appears that he's "doing something" about the problem.
But then, laws don't mean a whole lot to Bloomberg anyway. He's serving his third term as Mayor in a city where, until very recently, the law limited the Mayor to two terms. How come? Because Bloomberg changed the law to suit himself.
and in typical usa today fashion, they (purposely i must assume) misreport the weapon used, and wait until half way through the second paragraph to point out that the one shot and killed (the "victim" in their parlance" was the offender. The firearm was not an automatic mac-10, but a knock off, semi- auto, that even the NYPOST got right (dont ask me how).
So.. anyone read news bias?
And Steve, don't bother king michael with logic, he is planning his run for the guvonator.
Yeah..I likes how they used the term Machine pistol

Yeah, thats the kind i want the bad guys to have, especially with a spray and pray mentality. less likely to actually hit someone. I'll stick to a semi-auto i practice with and that works lol.
