  •  I moved to NYC in 1983. (5+ / 0-)

    Sometime within the next few years -- I don't remember exactly -- the NYT did a story about illegal guns in NYC.

    IIRC, most of them came from PA -- where I currently reside, and where the gun laws are a joke that even Philly's mayor finds extremely unfunny -- and VA.

    It's not so shocking that there's no federal gun trafficking law when you consider how many pols are wholly owned by the NRA.

    And here in PA, there is one, count 'em, ONE gun law for the entire state.  Which means Potter County (population: deer) has the same laws as Philly, Pittsburgh, Harrisburg, and other places with -- let's face it -- high levels of crime.  Gun crime.

    To make the argument that the media has a left- or right-wing, or a liberal or a conservative bias, is like asking if the problem with Al-Qaeda is do they use too much oil in their hummus. Al Franken
