There is no “scourge of illegal guns” in New York City.
Being a police officer is inherently dangerous, and it is wrong to pretend that infringing on the constitutional rights of citizens will eliminate all the dangers associated with the job.
This is nothing more than a disgraceful attempt by Bloomberg to use the tragic deaths of two police officers to advance his irrational political agenda.
If he really wants to help the city, he can start by ending the scourge of eminent-domain abuse.
