Subject: RE: BS: Gun ban - yep already
Well PDQ, no matter what happens with firearm laws, the only ones it ever affects is those who don't break the law. The criminals don't care. It is pretty evident looking at the street gangs all carrying without a permit. For those of us who went through the incredible complex process of getting a carry permit in NY, the criminals didn't need to do that.
By the way, to even own a handgun in NY, you would not believe the process. I am one of the very few that actually got a conceal carry permit that I know.

my only concern with the AK is that shootout in California a few years back, those two guys converted them to fully auto with armour piercing round and rained havoc on the police. To me can't see why we need them for hunting or otherwise since you can go get 100 round drum clips and lay seige to someone or someplace like what happened. But I guess the bad guys will always get them and the good guys will obey the ban if it comes to that so nothing really changes
