Steve. Your statement "This isn’t to say that gun-control laws aren’t good ideas. After all, most New Yorkers approve of the push. And a push is better than no push at all.

You and others like you need to learn some basics. You are certainly entitled to your own opinion but NOT your own facts. To say "...most New Yorkers approve of the push." is right from the 'less informed people' but does not represent the real facts. You may get this from your main sources of information, but time to learn that the main stream media is real short on the truth. Try again using the real numbers.
