    honestly, if I was Governor I would instruct the State Police to search EVERY car that comes to NYC from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Florida, and Texas.

    Detroit is listed as the most dangerous city in america. It also has strict gun laws. Most serious scholars blame poverty, unemployment and gangs.

    Yup, and you'd surely run afoul of the Commerce Clause, not to mention the 4th Amendment...



    Careful, your "common sense gun control" facade is slipping.... and the thinly-veiled tyranny is peeking out.

    NYC in the 80's had extremely strict weapons laws and very very high crime and murders. Rudi Guiliani made the city relatively safe, but at the cost of draconian policing policies. That's why NYC is NOW not such a bad place as far as crime. Nothing to do with gun control.


    Again and again, if you dig a little you find that poverty/unemployment, corrupt or ineffective law enforcement, and factions/gangs/drugs are the primary causes of crime and violence. Gun control is a side issue.

    What a rediculus statement. Even if you could get this Unconstitutional mandate passed, you would go broke.... Please try to be realistic in your arguments. As Bugs would say: What a maroon.... What a nincowpoop...

    It's hyperbole to call "searching every car that comes from X states" by it's proper term, tyranny?


    Are you really so terrified of guns that you'd want to search every vehicle from SC VA etc on that basis? I hate to break it to you but most criminals in your AO that want guns have them already....

    so, what you're saying is, gun-control laws don't effect crime rates one way or the other?
