Huge section on pro guns thoughts from people in NYC and locally (near me) from Troy NY. Everyone says that the lax prison time and allowing repeat offenders out of jail with minmal time served is the root of the problem not guns. Someone acknowledged that if guns were banned in all of the US thugs would get them from out of the country. Pretty simple logic from the common folk. Another said that the death penalty should be reinstated to deter gun killings of police officers, not a bad idea, though their life is as valueable as mine, so it should be for all, not just cop killers. In Tuesdays Dail News a retired NYC cop said he arrested over 60 people with illegal handguns during his tenure and only 5% ever did time for it. And they wonder why they continue to have problems down there. Bloomberg is such a jerk.
