With any luck.
But recall that it was New York that brought us Boss Tweed and Tammany Hall politics.
Ah, yes...who can forget Carmine DiSapio?
And it was Tammany Hall, that brought New York gun-control under the Sullivan Act:
The father of New York gun control was Democratic city pol Big Tim Sullivan a state senator and Tammany Hall crook, a criminal overseer of the gangs of New York...And a century later, Democrats are still protecting criminals from law abiding citizens who would defend themselves!
Sullivan knew the gangs would flout the law, but appearances were more important than results...
Ordinary citizens, on the other hand, were disarmed, which solved another problem: Gangsters had been bitterly complaining to Tammany that their victims sometimes shot back at them.
