Not only that, but New York also attempted a ban on criminal guns with stop and frisk, and it was struck down by the ACLU.
because they were stopping people for no reason and subjecting them to searches without any cause. Additionally, they were targeting minorities with this policy. You don't need to use racist abusive tactics to do gun control.
There's not a single damn gun ban plan targetting criminals HB can propose that ACLU won't similarly strike down with the force of the radical left mob.
Why would they? The reason they fought stop and frisk is because it was really illegal. The police do not have the authority to forcefully search whoever they want without probable cause.
Why do you think there are comparatively so so many more armed criminals in Democrat-run cities?
Cities tend to be democrat run because populations in cities tend to have higher education and/or benefit from lots of government programs. So republican policies of slashing public services to funnel money to the rich directly hurt them.
Since population in cities is so much higher, there is also more money to be made. This attracts criminals. And the more money and the more criminals there are, makes it more likely those criminals will get weapons to protect their criminal enterprises. It is all very straight forward. It has nothing to do with democrat policies.
But again, you are looking at gun control as if who is in charge of a specific city is an important detail. It is not. It doesn't matter what gun control laws a city passes because guns will pour in from the next city or state over. There is no way for a single city or state to make much of a difference. Real change has to be national.
