3. It's amazing how much they freak out over this.

So a relative handful of people with spotless criminal records and who were vetted by the NYPD will be able to carry concealed guns in public... and they act like its the end of the goddamn world.

This can only be because:

New Yorkers believe the violent crime rate in NYC is so high that gun battles between robbers and CCW permittees will be common, as will people caught in the crossfire;

New Yorkers believe that anybody with $5 on their metrocard and who can fog a mirror can get a permit and a gun;

New Yorkers believe that a CCW permit legalizes armed robbery, carjacking and murder.

Keep in mind that NYC also makes getting non-lethal self-defense tools, like pepper spray, Tasers, and stun guns very hard to get as well.

There is an underlying train of thought in this part of the country, it seems to me, that is a result of being very old and established compared to the rest of the country, and it goes like this:

If something sucks, it can't be fixed, and if you try to fix it will not only fail to make things better, but the inconvenience while you're trying will make things even worse while wasting taxpayer money.
