    Yeah, NYC is absolutely absurd. It cost me a $3,200 legal bill. It took a little more than a year, about 15 months I believe. And of course the attorney was juiced-in. I probably paid more for the influence than the right to have a permit. I don't recall ever carrying the gun in the city either so it was a complete waste.

    I live 45 minutes from the city and read the city papers. I don't recall 64 people being shot in any 48 hour period in the history of the city. In terms of crime per capital NYC is quite safe. The smaller cities an hour North of NYC like Newburgh, Poughkeepsie, Middletown, etc have much higher gun crime rates. Much more dangerous upstate.

    BC is no dummy. If he declares something is truth, you can be sure he put in at least a little bit of effort.
    Ton up!

How can ANYONE with half-a-brain recconcile support of the present administration and claim to be pro-2nd Amendment?? I mean the common theme of this place (I thought) was basically RKBA, 2nd Amendment and CCW issues which is famously 'politically-incorrect' in liberal circles? (trying real hard to be kind here!) Some of these folks may well be agitators and trolls yet many have numerous posts and have never been banned. IF (and I stress IF) these folks are TRUELY pro-2A, RKBA, etc. supporters of this site (and not merely trolls) I would ask (given the mindset and record of the democratic agenda) do you GENUINELY believe your 2nd Amendment rights are SAFE under the present administration? Please explain (and be specific please) because i'd really like to know!
    I would suggest by your statement that the 2A is okay for you and thepeople that agree with you but the persons you don't agree with should have their 1A rights removed simply because you don't agree with what they have to say?

    Some would say that Obama has not lifted a finger to infringe on the 2A ( as president has not introduced legislation but he did a hell of a job while senator) while Romney has signed and therefore enacted legislation as Governor that has.
    To not stand against injustice is to stand for it.
    Don't confuse my personality and my attitude.
    My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.

    Holy smokes! I had no idea. I stand corrected.

    I found this statistic as well --> In 2009, among the 182 U.S. cities with populations of more than 100,000, New York City ranked 136th in overall crime. While crime rates have stopped decreasing for a decade in the rest of the United States, in New York the murder rate for 2009 is at an all time low of 466, more than a 10% decline from the previous year, and the lowest count during the period that crime statistics have been recorded.

    True enough, and that's down to the trauma ER saving lives imo.

    Also, the NYPD have a bit of a history of fudging numbers.

    localgirl:

    My concern is the with the democrat party specifically, (whose voting history is a matter of record) concerning 2nd amendment issues.
    If you are completely honest with yourself , the least bit of research will bear this out. A short list I'd suggest would be to read the NRA's
    grading on the voting record of polititians (by state) and how they voted on gun related issues. And yes there are democrats with excellent " grades" BUT for the most part, they reflect the a party trend is anything but 2A-friendly.
    And NO I'm not a cheerleader for the NRA,( but they do some things well) and keeping gun owners informed of our elected officials stance on RKBA is one of them. Remember the POTUS in not my "only" concern....!

    You appear to a be well-educated, articulate woman yet your naivety brings to mind that scene in the Wizard of Oz where Dorothy is speaking to the 'wizard' when as he replies..."Pay NO attention to the man behind the curtain"....

    Yeppers...it's the "guy's BEHIND the curtain that scare the hell outta' me!

    What do you want? A plaque with you're name engraved on it? He presented a very compelling argument.

    At least I can give credit where credit is due without mentally vomiting all over my keyboard like you do.
