    you have no idea what you're talking about. I have several co-workers who own many firearms, and they are all NYC residents.

    its relatively easy to get a rifle/shotgun permit...though a permit for a handgun is more tricky.

    but again, my very average co-workers ALSO have handgun permits.

    yes, it is near-impossible for certain types of individuals to get a handgun permit in NYC.

    but like I said, my very average co-workers have them. Hell, one of them even has quite a long arrest record.

Thankfully it was a man and he just got pummeled by others so its perfectly allowable and kosher to point out he made bad choices. So I guess we're lucky.

    The guys that did the beating should be prosecuted at the fullest extent of the law. That being said, that extent should not include hate crime legislation. Someone committing a crime against you because of your race makes it no more of some special super duper crime than for any other reason. At most, the fact it was racially motivated should come into play when determining the sentence within the paramaters of guidelines for the actual crime that was committed, but it absolutely should not be some extra bit lopped no top like hate crime legislation esentially does now.
    First, you're completely right about the woman and rape scenario. If any of us had said anything about the woman's behavior, we would have been sick misogynists. Oh well.

    However, I disagree about hate crimes. Hate crimes have a greater societal impact than non-hate crimes and I think that impact should be considered in the law, particularly if our society is interested in ending the negative effects of racism, sexism, homophobia, etc.

    Yes, any civilian unless they are a shop keeper, and even then it's a circus.

    Anyone who thinks blacks can't be racist only need to walk down main St. of their inner city during the day (Do it at night and you're dead most likely) and tell me there is no racisim in black America..

    Tim-
    jesus, has someone actually suggested that?

    I have been the victim of black racism, and witnessed black racism against whites, time & time again.

    anyone who says that blacks are incapable of racism, due to some BS about a lack of political and economic power, is a liar.

    So thanks for that anyway, was most enlightening.

    err...none of my co-workers are "shop keepers".

    they both have handguns. more than one. just average, Middle-class guys.

    I will ask one tomorow, how long it took him to get his permit.

    but I'll bet you that unless you are insane and a real danger to yourself or others, its not that difficult to get a handgun permit in NYC.
