Daily News op-ed, “New York must modify tough gun laws to make it less vulnerable to legal assault“:
“… New York’s [gun] laws have a fat target on their backs – one that gun-lobby attorneys are sure to exploit. For one, the prices are high enough that they’re sure to be challenged as discriminatory against the poor. Absurd? Perhaps – but it worked in knocking down the Chicago and D.C. laws …”
Translation: We must keep the poor unwashed masses from legally owning guns.
Using their logic, why not have a financial means test for other rights, like voting?
