    Another example of failed gun control. Issue more concealed carry permits and the criminals might stop to consider their intended victims or someone nearby might fight back.

    So far this weekend over 30 people have been shot in NYC. Again, criminals are becoming more emboldened and their actions more vial. This City must curtail this violence.
