yeah cant go after illegal guns..can we???? because black people never go to gun shows, so why the focus there?

5 years no bail no early release for each illegal gun, double if you have priors

what about full body scanner at all public housing projects we paid for it……dont want to be scanned for drugs or guns….ok, move and pay your own full rent.


well who is the biggest user of illegal guns? not Greeks, Lithuanians, not Vietnamese, not Jews, not some African tribe…nope American black males….and we should start there first..that’s all.

The reason to have a gun is not to shoot deer, clay or bodega owners. It’s to shoot a tyrannical government that comes for your life, liberties and property. Defense.

open your eyes bot

i think new york state laws gives a minimum 3.5 years for possession of an illegal firearm.. not 5..
