Today’s Hilarity


Police Commissioner James O’Neill said it would be “insanity” for the feds to force one state to recognize another’s lax gun laws.

A bill making its way through Congress would make gun possession akin to a driver’s license — so one state’s looser regulations against concealed weapons would be protected in tougher anti-gun states, like New York.

Now for the funny stuff:

“Right now, we have a good idea of who’s carrying guns. If this law passes, all bets are off,” he said. “Anybody can come into New York City from any state and carry a weapon.”

Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. agreed.

The “right now we have a good idea of who’s carrying guns” part? In English, that’s called a lie. Not only does the NYPD have no earthly idea just how many guns are in the City, they don’t want to know. More importantly, they don’t want the City gummint to know.

I lived there for years, and let me tell you a little something: everybody in NYC who wants a gun has one, and that’s been true for decades. In my own family, my relatives had all sorts of unregistered goodies when they were growing up, and that was back in the 40’s and 50’s. Me? I moved into New York in 1979, and I had a pistol (to go along with the longarms I already had) within a few weeks.

    You damn right they know who has a tiny fraction of those guns.
    The ones that have been registered.
    As for the rest of them, it keeps ’em on their toes.
    They know damn good and well NY is just like the rest of the country, heavily armed.
