No Guns In Manhattan

You may or may not have seen this, but I found one item fascinating.

A newspaper in New York has received a wave of criticism from its readers after publishing the names and addresses of all of the individuals with handgun or pistol permits in its coverage area.

I won’t opine except to note that the were able to get the information via a Freedom of Information Act statute, I presume in New York. Perhaps that marks a new low in the misuse of such a statute?

Anyway if you click on this link from the article you will see the dispersal of guns throughout the New York area. I know you’re probably going to be looking for names of your friends and associates but do focus in on one thing. Note that there appears to be only one legally at least gun owned in Manhattan. Incredible! Who knew that the gun laws had so successfully eliminated guns from the Big Apple?
