Another example of loser politicians in one part of a state unable to control crime thinking that draconian state laws will somehow help their locality.

We have so many politicians we are forced to elect many incompetent politicians.

Mostly it's govt that wants gun control laws. Govt is the worst threat to our safety.

Govt is always our worst enemy.

Yeah the New York State Assembly has some real winners. Mexico has some of the strictest gun control laws on the books and we all know what a paradise of non violence that country is. I find it hard to believe that Niagara County New York has 27000 pistol permits issued. Maybe 27000 total have been given since permits were started but this also does not take into account that permit holders commit virtually no crimes with thier registered guns. It would be interesting to see how many permits are revoked or suspended for non crimes such as arguing with a neighbor for their dog taking a crap on your lawn.

England is actually thinking of making guns legal again with permits because the crime has gotten so high. We still see lots of illegal guns used in countries where they are banned.

It would be better to teach gun safety in all schools like we teach fire safety. In countries where the citizens are unarmed is usually where large massacres occur.
