The gun issue was brought up as a potential deal-breaker for his campaign. What a song and dance that little bastard is playing. He fully understands the 2nd amendment and supports the right of citizens to keep and bear arms... BUT He thinks that in 'densely populated' areas like NYC, they should have strict laws regarding who can have them. Seems like he advocates states having authority to regulate the use and possession of firearms, even in blatant disregard for the 2nd. His gun laws helped reduce homicides in NY by 75-80%. I highly doubt that. Maybe if the population increased 75-80%. He did a nice dance around the AWB. He thinks it was the right thing to do at the time. He skirted the issue (at least to me) of imposing another one. This election cycle is going to suck. Every one of these turds is a socialist.
